Hurry the Jug

Reading tonight’s paper, I discovered that Hurry the Jug is playing on at 7PM, Thursday June 17th for a weekly Midland concert series called “Tunes by the Tridge”.  (Despite the promising name, they appear to be the only band in the series playing what a Celtic musician would think of as tunes.)  I’ve not heard of them before, but their MySpace page has samples so you can get a feel for what they are about.  They’re apparently from Charlotte.

For those of you wondering what the name means, “Hurry the Jug” is an old Irish set dance.  There is a classic recording of it on legendary County Clare fiddler Bobby Casey’s album Casey in the Cowhouse.

A web search indicates they are also playing in Clare (Michigan!) on July 22nd.
