Home audiences are invited to listen online to a special offering from Steve Hurl and Bruce Ward of Jumpin’ Juba on Tuesday, February 2, at 6:30 PM.
Jumpin’ Juba mixes regional blues from Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans together with rootsy rock & roll, jazz, calypso and Latin flavors. On guitar and vocals it features Mr. Hurl, whose playing draws from the great acoustic blues finger-pickers and from the bluesy string benders of the 1950s. Mr. Ward’s burly piano work recalls such greats as Prof. Longhair, Otis Spann and Albert Ammons. The band’s two CD releases, “Bumpity Bump” and “Slap Happy,” have received regional and overseas airplay and have garnered many favorable reviews in Massachusetts and beyond.
The concert is free and open to all. Registration is required to get the Zoom link. Register at www.falmouthpubliclibrary.org/events by 5:30 PM on the day of the event or by calling the reference department at 508-457-2555, extension 7.
