The Bumper Jacksons in Concert at the Olin Fine Arts Center in Washington
The Bumper Jacksons are hot and sweet, painting America's story from New Orleans' brothels to Appalachian hollers. The spirited musical ensemble is coming to the Olin Fine Arts Center on the campus of Washington & Jefferson College at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6.
Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.
Honored as the region's 2015 "Artist of the Year" and "Best Folk Band" from 2013-2015 at the Washington D.C. Area Music Awards, the Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals and re-imagining roots music with both power and tenderness. Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone's invited and the dance floor never sleeps.
The concert features Washington & Jefferson College Alum, Chris Ousley ‘08.
