The Dirdy Birdies Jug Band
Genres: Blues, Vaudeville Jazz, Folk

The Dirdy Birdies have been around for over 40 years. They have been playing together longer than I have been alive! I started working with them a few years back. We went down to Louisville Kentucky to perform at The National Jug Band Jubilee. The shows were recorded and released on a compilation CD featuring the Birdies along with the other bands that were performing. Here are some excerpts...
