It’s Ladies’ Choice, womenfolk! Nab you a partner and head on over to the Bridge Street Theatre Speakeasy in Catskill for some old school good times this Fourth of July weekend! It’s a Sadie Hawkins Day Extravaganza featuring refreshments, photos and the musical stylings of Greater Nippertown’s favorite washboard band, Ramblin Jug Stompers. The party begins at 7:30pm on Saturday (July 2) and ends in plenty of time for you to head out to Dutchman’s Landing for the annual Catskill fireworks display.
Celebrating its first decade, Ramblin Jug Stompers play 78RPM Music for the 21st Century. With banjo, mandolin, guitar, jug, washboard and more, the popular Albany jug band “stomperizes” every song it touches, pulling the beat back to “ramblin speed” and adding comic flourishes, sharp musicianship and Spike Jones-like looniness to each tune it plays —whether from the songbag of Roger Miller, the Memphis Jug Band, Louis Armstrong or Doc Watson.
