Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Jug Band and Skiffle Songs
Subject: Jug Band And Skiffle, How to define?
I've been thinking about this for some time. There are many songs that we identify as "jug band" or "skiffle" tunes. However, they cover a wide range of styles from blues to ukelele tunes, from 20s Novelty numbers to more recent songs. Some songs recorded by jug bands aren't considered "jug band tunes". Some that weren't recorded by the classic jug bands are now included in my mind as jug songs.

What makes a song a Jug Band tune? What makes a song a skiffle tune?

I went through the Mudcat this evening and made blue clicky things for all of the past threads that concerned jug band or skiffle songs and provided lyrics and/or chords for them. The list is in the next message.

I would be very interested in additional jug band lyrics and/or chords if anyone has any.
