Join us Friday, December 4 when Jug Tucker plays their signature blend of Bluegrass, Western Swing, and Folk. They’ll even add some holiday tunes to the mix for this Very Southern Christmas set. They play from 5-8!
Jug Tucker has been tickling acoustic ears since they began in 2009. Mark and Sherri Criminger make their home on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. Mark on guitar, mandolin, and lead vocals, has been writing and performing music most of his life. He has shared the stage with many of the greats including Doc Watson, Ralph Stanley, and Art Stamper. Through his talent of teaching, Mark taught Sherri to play upright bass, fiddle and sing harmony.
Performing their favorites in Bluegrass, Western Swing, Irish, and original tunes, Jug Tucker gets toes tapping from the coast to the mountains. The band entertains tourists and locals at many Outer Banks venues and restaurants. Off-season, you might find them pickin tunes at weddings, festivals, and wineries, all the way to California. Asheville, NC is where Mark and Sherri love to get their “bluegrass batteries re-charged”. With their vintage Shasta camper and instruments, they head west to get more inspiration performing with friends and fellow musicians. With two CD’s already released, Jug Tucker has plans for a 3rd of all original music. Wherever they travel, their love of traditional music is displayed in the smiles of all “Jug Heads” within earshot.
Music starts at 6!
