Meet the Bumper Jacksons. Their trad jazz and pre-war country music paint’s America’s early history. The Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style. This duo is a Carhartt sorta bunch. They even camp out after playing at events and do three week long biking music tours.

Jess constructs all of her own washboards. Each one is a playable instrument and hangable piece of art. She also gives washboard lessons. I got to try my hand at a few tunes, and it was a blast.
