  • Biography the Crow Quill Night Owls were formed in 2007 by musician / archivist Kit "Stymee" Stovepipe and Windy City Alex. in 2011 multi instrumentalist Baylin Adaheer was added to the group as a washtub bassist. the group plays a mix of early blues, jazz, pop songs, ragtime, jug band, and hillbilly music from the 1920's and 30's. they also put their love of old silent films, comics, and bizarre cartoons of the past into the original artwork they create for their albums. in the style of the Memphis Jug Band, they have a pool of musicians they draw from for gigs, recording dates, and tours, so you can often hear some of the best underground musicians of this style in they're band. including, the Gallus Brothers, Stale Bread Scottie, Maxwell Fisher, Asher Benjamin, Brody Douglas Hunt, itchy ribs Robinson,and members of the Sour Mash Hugband, Below the Salt, Blind Boy Chocolate and the milk Sheiks, the Inkwell Rhythm Makers, and the Blair street Mugwumps. the band has toured with the belly dance group "the indigo" in their "Le Serpent Rouge" variety show, performed as part of Baby Gramp's band, and also toured with and recorded two albums as the Garden of Joy Jug Band with Maria Muldaur. they've played from west coast, to east coast on street corners, at festivals, in rundown bars, house shows, big concert halls, and down in the subways. they've been performing strange early American Music on makeshift and traditional instruments since as early as 2001.
