Jewish Jug Band Featuring Joshua Skye Engel


What is a Jewish jug band? Families and kids of all ages are about to find out, again, with the return of one of the last Ashkenaz Festival’s most popular family programmes. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert music-maker, whether you play the clarinet or the kazoo, Ashkenaz’s Jewish Jug Band welcomes all. Washboards, spoons, jugs, bones, kazoos and melodicas will mix with traditional instruments of all kinds in an inter-generational cacophony of epic proportions. A limited number of non-traditional instruments will be made available to participants on a first-come basis, otherwise bring your own implement of sonic destruction (and maybe some ear plugs!).

Children under 12 are welcome with a participating adult.
