The Even Dozen Jug Band was founded in 1963 by the great Country Blues and Ragtime guitarists Stephan Grossman and Peter Siegel in New York City. An old timey super-group of sorts, it's members included John Sebastian (who later formed the Lovin' Spoonful), mandolinist extraordinaire David Grisman, guitarist Steve Katz (later with Blues Project and Blood, Sweat and Tears), vocalist Maria D'Amato (who later became singing star Maria Muldaur), and famed American musicologist and pianist Joshua Rifkin. The band was short lived and in 1964 released their only album, the highly influential "Jug Band Songs of the Southern Mountains". The group made numerous appearances on television and performed at the famed Carnegie Hall in New York City. All selections newly re-mastered.
