Jug Band Festival at Sutter Creek Inn

Saturday, August 17, 11am, Sutter Creek Inn, no cover

How many jug band festivals have you been to this year? If you’re like most people, the answer is “too few.” Make up for it by spending a whole day listening to the bands that feature improvised instruments, swampy sounds and plenty of banjos. This is the 17th year of the international festival, and it brings nine different bands to town to play. There will be Rivertown Skifflers, Carmichael Philharmonic Jug Band, Zarcon Trio, Deep Basement Shakers and more. 75 Main Street in Sutter Creek, facebook.com/CJBA2/events.
