Jalopy Theatre Presents: Washboard Slim and the Bluelights

On the first Friday of each month, Jalopy Theatre sponsors music at the American Folk Art Museum as part of a continuing partnership. Tonight’s performance features Washboard Slim and the Bluelights.
Incorporating pure Americana instruments like tub bass, washboard, jug, banjo, harmonica, and fiddle, adding drums and powerful vocal harmonies, this band plays their own compositions as well as original arrangements of traditional gospel and blues tunes.
