Hand-made music, presented live and in real time. In the words of Steve Hurl, the band’s leader, Jumpin’ Juba is New Orleans swamp-rock, classic boogie-woogie, folk, Memphis rock & roll, and a playful use of everything from calypso to country stirred into the one blue stew. Join this Southgate favorite for an instrumental performance.

PBS American Experience Video: “The Gilded Age”
In the closing decades of the nineteenth century, during what has be-come known as the Gilded Age, the population of the United States doubled in the span of a single generation. The nation became the world’s leading producer of food, coal, oil, and steel, attracted vast amounts of foreign in-vestment, and pushed into markets in Europe and the Far East. As national wealth expanded, two classes rose simultaneously, separated by a gulf of experience and circumstance that was unprecedented in American life. These disparities sparked passionate and violent debate over questions still being asked in our own time. The Gilded Age presents a compelling and complex story of one of the most convulsive and transformative eras in American history.
