Memphis Jug Band

Leftover Biscuits serves up the ultimate challenge pitting the older and more established string band music against the young (well, younger) sounds of jug band. Who will come out on top in this musical free for all? Will the Dallas String Band come out swinging, or will the Memphis Jug Band blow the strings down for the count? Refereeing this match will be early blues historian Joe Ayers.  There can only be one victor in this battle, and that's you the listener, when these two early blues styles get into the ring for the ultimate musical match.
