The Mongrel Jews are a Seattle street folk band that has been gracing the city’s stages, street corners and living rooms since 2010. Mixing the down-home Americana of Old Crow Medicine Show with the raucous energy of the Violent Femmes, the acoustic trio puts on a theatrical performance full of caterwauling shout-alongs and dancing ballads.
The band was founded by washboard player Sarah Shay, who brought aboard her banjo-touting brother Aaron, and the wailing harmonica of Annie Hughes. They have shared bills with such acts as Jason Webley, Renee de la Prade, God’s Favorite Beefcake, Danbert Nobacon, and a burlesque dancer in a banana costume.
