Jug Band Ensemble with Rick Quisol

This course will offer students a chance to explore multiple aspects of this contagiously fun musical style that had its roots in Louisville.

We'll develop a repertoire from the genre which comprised a mix of Tin Pan Alley Jazz, Blues, and Country, and learn skills to play in a friendly, supportive group.

Weekly lessons will teach:

  • jug band repertoire including essential chord changes,
  • keeping a rhythm on a washboard,
  • historical insight from historian Michael Jones,
  • how to play the jug,
  • how to bring all those elements together in an ensemble.


Open to all levels and instruments, both traditional & homemade.


Jug, washboard, guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, ukulele, bass, kazoo, harmonica, or no instrument at all - come to sing along!
