Bob Ayo and Jonathan Henley from New Orleans – together calling themselves The Bucket Boys – were a big #Fleadh2018 hit with their lively repertoire of American old-time and country songs.
And yes, that is a bucket.
Turned upside down.
With a brush handle attached.
Connected by a single piece of taut but twangy string.
It’s what bass players played back in the mists of bluegrass and jug band history when they couldn’t afford a real bass.
