The Creaking Planks

since circa 2005
The jug band of the damned! Drawing on numerous and disparate naive, folk and outsider musical traditions, the common thread running through the performers in this ensemble is that individually, none of them belong in a contemporary musical context – while together, their sum suggests nothing stranger than the iPod of 1906. Keep yer eyes open for more demented nautical circus orchestration from this versatile crew o' musical miscreants.
Available for Shows/Gigs
