Jacob Miller & the Bridge City Crooners
Get your dancing shoes ready and brace yourself for this 1930s ragtime string-storm. At just 23 years old, age really is just a number for Jacob Miller whose rapture is encompassed by his own voice as he warbles with the staccato of a jazz shouter and wails like a country blues moan. Their music is blues for sure, but not the country blues of Robert Johnson. It’s more like the urban blues of Memphis Minnie or Big Bill Broonzy – blues born under the cold streetlights of a nameless Midwestern city.
