Nor’easter Music Spotlight: Red Hot Juba

Next time you visit your local music shop, see if they have a section for the genre “Cosmic Americana”. That might be where you’ll find Red Hot Juba. What exactly is Cosmic Americana?…

“As it turns out, cosmic Americana has absolutely nothing to do with space cowboys. Nothing against Steve Miller or his fans, but I believe that’s a collective sigh of relief you’re now hearing. Rather, the genre — or Red Hot Juba’s take, anyway — is a sparkling blend of hot-house jazz and country swing, equal parts Django and Hank with just a pinch of Merle thrown in for good measure.” -Dan Bolles, Seven Days

The Nor’easter is pumped to have their unique local style rounding out our Church St. stage on Sunday afternoon. “Red Hot Juba are a guaranteed booty shakin good time and one more of the supremely talented crop of local artists that exists in Burlington VT. Moving the Nor’easter to Burlington has brought us into a truly unique community of artists and outdoors people and we’re lucky to be there.” -Pete Ward, Festival Director
