Holiday Jug Band Review Comes To Arts Center This Weekend

The Arts Center of Cannon County is proud to announce their Holiday Jug Band Review and Vaudeville Circus featuring the Jake Leg Stompers, Eggplant Faerie Players and Friends.  This event will include live music, juggling, trapeze, stilt walking, unicycle, holiday surprises and fun.  This highly entertaining ensemble performance is sponsored by the Village Idiot Society of Middle Tennessee and features Murfreesboro’s inimitable minstrels of musical mayhem, the Jake Leg Stompers. Along with your Christmas favorites expect heavy doses of Chicken-Fried, Pre-War, Hokum-Billy Jug Band music of the variety that makes you want to get up and shake your lederhosen.  Performing on vintage instrumantes such as the bajor-uke, fiddle, tuba, guitar, washboard and saw, the Stompers capture the rebellious spirit of pre-1941, American Music from Memphis Jug bands to Appalachian Hillbilly to Fats Waller when folk music was still dangerous.
In keeping with the fine traditions of true Vaudeville Circus, the Stompers will be joined onstage by Cannon County’s own Tom Foolery and his Eggplant Faeire Players who bring years of professional experience in the fine arts of juggling., unicycle, stilt-walking and general hilarity.  Rounding otu the Vaudeville Circus will be the incomparable Leela Sophina, Queen of the Air on her burlesque trapeze.  All ticket prices are $10.  The shows are on Friday and Saturday starting at 7:30.  For reserverations or for more information call 615-563-2787 or check out the website at
