The Ragtime Jug Orchestra
“All around men for all occasions”
The Ragtime Jug Orchestra is the authentic string-band sound of the early 20th century. Playing a good-time mix of ragtime, country blues, skiffle and jug band music, the RJO perform hits from the levees of St Louis, the Beale Street bars of Memphis, the back hills of Tennessee, the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta and the sporting houses of New Orleans.
