Their music goes back to the 1920`s , 30`s and 40`s. The Jumper and Moe play in different styles like the Mississippi slide or harp style, or the sweet Piedmont way of guitarpicking.
We can find memories of Blind Blake, Mississippi John Hurt, Bo Carter, Lightning Hopkins, Blind Willie McTell, Bukka White, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and many more of the old-timers in their music.
During the last years they have won great recognition at the European festival and club scene, and their Live-shows always got superb revues.
Jolly Jumper & Big Moe plays instruments like the harps, 6 & 12 string guitars, national steel, the mandolin, footstomp and whatever that’s got strings on. They also use a lot of strange things as percussion, and of course, they both do the vocals.
Jolly Jumper & Big Moe comes from mid-Norway, from Hell. This is the home of the Hell Blues Festival.
The Jumper and Moe have a great act, it is like a history lesson, and it`s always a very humorous one! They have also played a lot in schools, both in history and music classes.
