Beginning in 2008 New Roanoke Jug Band will be on indefinite hiatus. Scott Baldwin, Jeff Hofmann and Sam Lunsford are continuing as the Rootstone Jug Band. In addition to playing banjo and guitar, Sam pulls double duty washboard and racked harmonica - that really gets a tune moving. Jeff and Sam stay quite busy with other musical pursuits (in addition to day jobs), so Scott has also launched Second Hand Jug Band, an outfit with a rotating supporting cast. His regular mates will appear with SHJB on select dates, but the project is intended to have a flexible personnel makeup.
