Originally commissioned for the celebration of Tennessee's “Homecoming '86,” Jug Blues & Fat Pickin' is inspired by recordings of the Memphis Jug Band, the most recorded and perhaps most popular of the jug bands to spring up on Memphis' Beale Street in the late 1920's, and also bluegrass banjo pickin'. Freund's composition is a unique musical offering that melds “blues elements” with minimalist technique. (Grade 5) Dur: 8:00.
