news of importance

South Sound Tug & Barge will debut this summer at the West Seattle Summerfest.  The event draws tens of thousands to the Alaska Junction in West Seattle.  We're thrilled to be on the bill. SST&B opens the festival's final day, Sunday, July 16 at 12:00 -- High Noon for SST&B fans.


Our Point Defiance Record Release Jubilee was a big success.  Big thanks to Tom and Lydia at the Parliament Tavern, and the crowd that came out to support the band, deplete our supply of CDs, and dance and sing the night away.  Here're a few photos from the night.

A three-man guitar, banjo and accordion act of defiance, mixing classics and originals, old-time tunes, modern-day punk, freedom, Irish tunes, love, union tubthumpers, resistance, country & western, bluegrass, reggae, gospel, liberation and alcohol.
