MAMAS MOUNTAIN JUG BAND JUG BAND MUSIC MAMAS MOUNTAIN JUG BAND
Mama's Mountain Jug Band
Foot-tapping, body-swaying music and banter,
that leaves a smile on your face - music your Mama sung to you.
Now a 4 piece band, featuring 13 instruments multi-part harmonies, and a good-time feel.
Mama’s Mountain Jug Band plays a mixture
of back to roots music, old Hillbilly songs, Jug band gems, Hokum, Jazz,
Blues, and that dash of Barbershop Harmonies.
Mama's waiting for you - come on in and meet the guys... and gal!
There are 4 members in the band, but all are multi-instrumentalists, so one is never quite sure who will pick up that loose instrument next. The line-up is:
Roy Carter – Front man (don’t let him tell you a joke!! – unless you are thick skinned). Roy plays Guitar, Ukulele, Harmonica, Washboard, Kazoo, Jug, Vocal interruptions, and any piece of random house furniture. Roy has played in Jazz bands, Jug bands, and Folk group line-ups. He is also a solo performer.
Evan Webb – Providing that distinctive slide Dobro sound, Evan also plays Mandolin, Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Harmonica, Vocal interruptions, and occasional piano (as long as he doesn’t have to carry it in!). Evan also plays in an Australian/Irish band, and has played in many bush bands and even a rock & roll band.
Keith Rea – On Guitar and Bass, at the same time, he's the rhythm backbone that drives the band, with stunning guitar solos when let loose. Keith also plays mandolin and vocal interruptions. Keith will admit to owning a kazoo if hard pressed! He plays in several other bands, a contemporary duo - 'The Incident,' and a 4 piece classic covers band - 'Beat That!'.
Sally Carter – Our latest member is a jaw-dropping musician who plays a mean pink fiddle and is amazing on vocals, Sally, who is no relation to Roy thank goodness, is from NZ, via Tasmania, but we dont hold that against her. Sally also does solo work where she plays guitar, and is in a duo with Evan, as 'Sympatico'.
