South Austin Jug Band

  • Dark & Weary World
  • Overdrivin The Mic

Call the music of the South Austin Jug Band whatever you like: bluegrass or newgrass, neo-Jug, acoustic country-folk, Texas roots unplugged, swinging Lone Star beatnik country or anything else that strikes you. The sprightly picking and fiddling and the quintet’s witty original songs and choice covers make their sound defy easy pigeonholing while passing through countless categories.

With their eponymous debut studio album, the South Austin Jug Band (SAJB) captured on disc the almost indescribably alluring charm that has made them the toast of perhaps the most musical town in America. It was produced by Lloyd Maines, whose many credits include the multi-million selling Home by The Dixie Chicks as well as albums by Texas legends like Robert Earl Keen and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
