At a backyard BBQ in the summer of 2017, a group of friends combined their love of grilling, beer, and American roots music – took it out to the shed behind Clark’s house and became The Jolly Jankin String Band.

The Jolly Jankin String Band specializes in Americana roots music that hearkens back to the turn of the 20th century. The repertoire includes traditional tunes, original songs, and modern offerings done in a traditional style. All are inspired by ragtime, dance, and bluegrass music of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, running from folk to bluegrass, with plenty of drinking songs thrown in to keep things lively!

The Jolly Jankin String Band is guaranteed to make any room a little more… JOLLY!
