Jim Jam Jug Band

Learn to use a range of fun household objects to create music as you form your own folk band in a classroom!

A jug band is a type of traditional folk band from America where at least one member of the band plays music using a jug! Other instruments in a jug band are often made from objects you might recognise from around the house including, a suitcase bass drum, spoons, washboards played with thimbles, a washtub bass and pizza box percussion.

Apart from all the household objects the Jim Jam Jug Band have an array of other instruments such as ukulele, kazoos and more, and offer lots of opportunity for singing throughout this fun hour long workshop

Jim Jam Jug Band has been developed with support from The Ark
