Slow Boat Home plays the music your great-grandfather might have enjoyed, if he had truly eclectic tastes and traveled the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers from Louisville to Memphis and on down to New Orleans.  They play a mixture of jug band, country, ragtime and blues music spanning the first half of the 20th century, and stretch into some classic country of the 1950s and 60s.  All four members share lead vocals, accompanied by harmonica, mandolin, bass, acoustic and resonator guitars, and a 1915 antique banjo-mandolin that survived WWI with the US Army in France.
