About this event
For nearly 60 years, Kweskin has championed American folk and blues and inspired countless musicians such as the Grateful Dead and the Lovin’ Spoonful. As bandleader of his legendary Jug Band, Kweskin created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival, adapting ragtime-blues fingerpicking to the complex chords of pop and jazz. His lifelong devotion to American folk styles continues to produce stellar recordings and live shows, both solo and in collaboration with various artists.
