The future of acoustic music: Jubilee consists of some of the top young award-winning acoustic musicians on the scene today. Known for their relentless groove and breathtaking improvisation, they bring a fresh approach to traditional bluegrass, old-time, and even work their genre-bending magic on a little jazz and funk. Ranging in age from 12-15, the musicians have performed at a range of venues including the CBA Father's Day Bluegrass Festival, Berkeley’s Freight and Salvage, the Gallo Center for the Performing Arts, Sacramento’s Crest Theater, The Watkins Family Hour, and just last month were featured at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC.
They have appeared both together and individually with a long list of monumental musicians and mentors including Darol Anger and Mike Marshall, Mads Tolling, Roy “Futureman” Wooten (of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones), George Cole (of the David Grisman Quintet), Hanneke Cassel and Mike Block, Sean and Sarah Watkins, and toured with Alasdair Fraser and the Scottish Fiddlers as well as The Bee Eaters. The boys, Miles and Teo, were recently featured on a TEDx Talk with Phoebe Hunt.
“It's a blessing to hear a group of young musicians blending Traditional Bluegrass and Newgrass sounds with such fire and energy. The love they have for the genre means the upcoming generation will be great. Don't miss the musicianship and energy this young dynamic group brings to the stage.”
- Keith Barnacastle, The Bluegrass Standard
