Event

Jim Kweskin and Samoa Wilson
What a treat to have these highly acclaimed musicians at TCCC!

Jim Kweskin - Rock historian Ed Ward listed, among the most important bands of the early '60's, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Byrds, "and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band." Ward added: "I'm not kidding." They toured America, headlining concerts with artists like Janis Joplin, Peter Paul & Mary, Linda Ronstadt and The Doors as opening acts. They appeared often on national television and were, by some accounts, "the coolest band of a cool decade."

Together with Samoa Wilson - Fast forward to a new millennium, Kweskin and Wilson are a sophisticated, mature duo of superb musicians who exude old school bohemianism while playing a mixture of jazz, swing, folk, blues and old-timey music with a contemporary style while, somehow, still keeping the original feel and meaning of the songs.

According to James O'Brien of the Listening Room: "Samoa Wilson (the youngest member), lithe, modern and powerfully gifted in voice, brings a cutting-edge vision to the ensemble. There is, conversely, something about her presentation that defies the moment. The effect of the Jim Kweskin Band is one of unhitching from the year and date, a wander through the material that seems slightly psychedelic."
