Introduction 

Dog in a bucket plays Jug band music, which was born among the poor African-American people in the USA in the 20's-30's. The idea is to use the "instruments" available: so, when they didn't have enough money to buy real instruments, the bass was played by blowing into whiskey jugs, made of clay. The repertoire of Dog in a Bucket is very varied, from rock and blues songs to Celtic folk songs, all played with jug band -style.
