JUTTA & THE HI-DUKES

Euro Roots World Music

MUSIC FOR THE STAGE

Live, acoustic music for plays & circus events

Interactive, all-ages public performance program

Jutta Distler and Terran Doehrer can follow a script! They have musically accompanied theater productions and circus shows as well as acting in plays and films. The two understand the interactive, spontaneous nature of a live performance.

Both are multi-instrumentalists which allows them to create music with a wide, ever-changing palatte of sonic colors to follow the flow of emotions of a live performance.

This Earwig Music Company artist has something for every program mood and theme as well as budget size. Band size can range from a powerful, budget-pleasing duet or trio up to a slamming six-piece band that will rock the largest crowd and take their soul (and soles), on an exciting worldbeat tour.

To make sure folks connect with the powerful roots music, the audience is encouraged to drum along on percussion as well as sing along. The entire family, from toddlers to seniors, gets to join in the very accessible fun!

Still life of some of the instruments played.
Some of the instruments played: Mandolin, Guitar, Darabuka, Tupan, and Kaval.

Unique sound

Most of our musicians are multi-instrumentalists, a fact which allows the band to create an ever changing color, but whatever the sound, every number grabs your attention, gets your feet tapping, urging you to dance.

Flexible and affordable

We fit the bands size to your budget, needs, and interests.

Thank you so much for performing at our Bishop Hill Folk Festival! We have heard nothing but compliments about your music.” Todd DeDecker, Bishop Hill Heritage Association Administrator

Their artistry and sense of musical history is infused in their delicious tracks. I like [their] intelligent approach to music as well as the old world flavor of what [they] do.” Terry Loncaric, entertainment writer and poet

After over twenty years of focusing on rootsy Blues acts, I decided to branch into World Music because of this eclectic band. Their enthusiastic and authoritative approach to music convinced me to sign them to the Earwig Music label. Their CD, ‘On the World Beat’, is a fine overview of their work. I imagine you will find Jutta & the Hi-Dukes(tm) as exciting as I do!” Michael Frank, owner of Earwig Music Company.

I am not exaggerating or giving empty words when I say your performance was my favorite ever.” Ashleah White, Reporter for The Current, University of Missouri – St. Louis, Nov. 28th, 2015
