UNDERAPPRECIATED MUSIC: JIM KWESKIN AND THE JUG BAND

A popular group at Jim Rooney's Club 47 in Harvard Square (in the days when men were men , music was music, and Maria Muldaur wore really short skirts) was Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band.  Kweskin was joined by Fritz Richmond (who actually turned a quonset hut into a musical instrument when he was in the army), Geoff Muldaur, Muldaur's wife Maria (yes, those skirts were really that short), Mel Lyman (a very unhinged man),Bill Keith,  and others who shuffled in and out of the group.  

Good, knee-thumpin' music.
