Slow Boat Home
Jug, Country and Blues Music

Slow Boat Home
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. We play a mixture of jug band, country and blues music spanning the first half of the 20th century, and stretch into some classic country of the 1950s and 60s such as the Louvin Brothers and Hank Snow. All four members share the lead vocals, accompanied by harmonica, mandolin, bass, acoustic and National resonator guitars and a 1915 antique banjo-mandolin that survived WWI with the US Army in France.

Michael Smith - Vocals, Acoustic and National guitar, kazoo
Stephen Born - Vocals, Harmonica, Jug, Percussion

Scott Southgate - Vocals, Bass

C. "Bo" Dacius - Vocals, Mandolin, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Banjo-Mandolin
