The Bumper Jacksons will stop by WTJU this Thursday, October 17, for a visit to Folk & Beyond.  Later that night they will perform at The Whiskey Jar in downtown Charlottesville.

The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Hot and sweet, their trad jazz and pre-war country repertoire paints America's story from New Orleans' brothels to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.  They recently released their latest release, Big Horn Mama.
