Mankato, Minn. – The Dumpy Jug Bumpers perform on Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. on the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall stage of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
The Dumpy Jug Bumpers are a string band that brings back the old-time sounds of country blues, ragtime, and jug band music from the era of 78-RPM records. Playing a menagerie of acoustic string and mouth instruments, they transform any stage into a barrelhouse romp.
