Creating new sounds from forgotten recordings, these American roots revivalists elegantly balance paying homage to tradition while fashioning their own unique and playful style.
Bumper Jacksons have grown into a brassy seven-piece honoring the musical traditions of old America with a bit of trouble mixed in. That hasn’t gone unnoticed. Sporting a wide array of instruments among them — washboard, pedal steel and banjo, just to name a few — these folks bring you into the center of an eclectic celebration, where everyone’s invited.
