Cannon's Jug Stompers
(Gus Cannon, Ashley Thompson, Noah Lewis)
Cannon's Jug Stompers, based in Ripley, Tennessee, consisted of banjoist Cannon (Banjo Joe), guitarist Ashley Thompson, and harmonicist Noah Lewis. Cannon was born in Mississippi in 1883 and played professionally before 1900. Lewis, a native of Henning, Tennessee, was born in 1895 and began working with Cannon around 1910. The group's twenty-eight recordings between 1928 and 1930 included "Walk Right In," made famous as a folk-rock song in the 1960's.
