Album Info

Washboard Rhythm Kings

This is an improved repost of the original posted back in 2008. The download had disappeared for what ever reason and I hadn't created a printed song list back then so I had to put together a new mix of songs. The songs in the download are different from the original post so worth downloading for those of you who got the first set. I also added an addition download of jug/washboard influenced Western Swing bands.

Jug and Washboard music is another sample of rural music that like western Swing was influenced by Jazz and Blues. The tradition of Jug and Washboard bands is that if you can't afford to buy a musical instrument, you make it yer self. The influence of washboard music on Western Swing can be heard in songs like "Call Of The Freaks" also known as "Garbage Man Blues" which was originaly recorded by the Washboard Rhythm Kings then covered by Milton Brown's Musical Brownies, to the instruments themselves. The washboard was used by a few early Western Swing bands like Bob Skyles & His Skyrockets, the Washboard Wonders, the Prairie ramblers, and Texas Jim Lewis.

Here is a sampling of 18 songs with that crazy jug/washboard sound;
