Jim Kweskin & Meredith Axelrod And The Jake Leg Stompers At City Winery says
About Jim Kweskin:

Jim Kweskin is probably best known as a singer and bandleader. He also created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival, adapting the ragtime-blues fingerpicking of artists like Blind Boy Fuller to the more complex chords of pop and jazz. He has maintained a remarkably consistent musical vision since his jug band days, continuing to explore traditional folk and blues with the sophisticated sensibility of a jazz musician and jazz with the communal simplicity of a folk artist. He has recorded solo ventures, as a member of the U and I band, and with U and I bandmate Samoa Wilson, and continues to perform widely in various formats. In recent years he and Geoff Muldaur have often appeared as a duo, revisiting and expanding on their Jug Band repertoire.
About Opener Jake Leg Stompers:

The Jake Leg Stompers evoke the rebellious spirit and colorful pageantry of American popular music before the Second World War, from the Memphis blues to the Virginia Reel; when jazz began, vaudeville was urgent, and folk music was still dangerous.
From their world headquarters in Bucksnort, Tennessee, the Jake Leg Stompers serve up tangy tastes of chicken-fried, pre-war, hokum-billy jug music to gourmet audiences everywhere. Acclaimed for their spirited, eclectic, and wildly unpredictable street performances, the Stompers are equally at home in night clubs or on festival stages.

Since 2005, the Jake Leg Stompers have built a devoted following in Nashville and throughout the Southeast with their engaging and playful public performances — performances that call forth the manners, moods, and repertoire of early 20th-century medicine shows, featuring period dress and vintage instruments.
Having found warmly appreciative audiences in club scenes and festival arenas, the Jake Leg Stompers look forward to taking their road show worldwide to showcase the breadth and joyous abandon of early 20th- century American string & jazz band music.
