The Perch Creek Family Jugband are a band of siblings from Australia who play (and sing) a blend of jug band jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass and original songs on an assortment of old instruments including:
banjo, washboard, jug, double bass, melodica, harmonicas, saw, trombone, kazoo, ukulele, guitar and tap dancing.
Featuring Australia’s top one-legged saw player, *Who* magazine’s ‘most handsome jug player’, and more (equally notable) siblings than you can count, The Perch Creek Family Jugband sing and dance their unique blend of original and traditional repertoire, roving from bluegrass, old-time jazz and country blues to whatever else they may just happen to fancy.
The PCFJB’s signature sound consists of tight 5 part vocal harmonies soaring over the down-home sounds of the 5-string banjo, washboard, jug, double-bass, harmonicas, saw, trombone, kazoo, ukulele, guitar, melodica and tap-dancing.
The Perch Creek Family Jugband command attention and lift spirits wherever they go and are a staple at music festivals across Australia, including the *Woodford Folk Festival*, *Mullum Music Festival*, the *Tamworth Country Music Festival* and many more.
In 2010 they appeared on the ABC TV show *Spicks & Specks*, before jetting off for a whirlwind tour of Europe where they were a hit in Germany, Switzerland, France, England, Ireland and in Scotland at the *Edinburgh Fringe Festival*.
