We had a fantastic time! We were missing Bapu on guitar, but carried on.
Slow Boat Home is a fun-loving Americana band playing original tunes mixed with a lively collection of country, blues, jazz and jug band music. Selecting many tunes from the first half of the 20th century, we make them our own with stellar lead and ensemble vocals, harmonica, mandolin, bass, resonator and dobro guitars and percussion.
When it comes to influences we are an eclectic bunch. Jim Kweskin, Bonnie Raitt, Bessie Smith, Lee Dorsey, Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonsy, Toots & the Maytals, Jerry Douglas and many more supply musical inspiration. Local to Boston, we collaborate with and are inspired by Paul Rishell & Annie Raines, Avi Salloway, Geoff Bartley and Session American. Many of us have warmed the seats at Club Passim and the Passim school of music, and we know the Cantab Lounge stage very well.
