From Old School to New School, Huck Finn Jubilee is jammin’! Get ready this Father’s Day weekend to rock out to every kind of bluegrass music you can imagine! With a lineup that includes nationally recognized award winners along with regional and local talent, the Jubilee continues its longstanding reputation of providing an incredible musical feast during its 37th anniversary! You would think the Jubilee’s main stage is the best part of the festival, right? Well think again and prepare to embark on an adventure that you will soon call a family tradition. While this Great American Family festival’s main stage lineup was enough to bring home the title of International Bluegrass Music Event of the Year, the “grab your instrument and join in on the party” philosophy really helped bring that award home.
Ricky Skaggs returns once again this Father’s Day weekend to the 37th annual Huck Finn Jubilee! Skaggs is a fourteen time Grammy Award-winner and was once credited with “single-handedly saving country music!” Skaggs has been rockin’ on his mandolin for over 50 years, and this year is no different! His passion for multicultural and genre-bending music inspires and encourages bluegrass lovers to keep the music in the heads and hearts of the country audiences everywhere. Don’t believe us? Come check him out on main stage, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 16.
The musical talent found at Huck Finn is widely renowned! From internationally recognized to locally home grown, these great performers are going to put on a show you won’t forget! Better yet, you can interact with these bands on ground level at the Jubilee!
- Curious about how Mark Cassidy, a local Southern California boy was able to join up with The Hillbenders, a band that has a reputation for supercharging crowds across the U.S., as their banjoist? Ask him yourself at this year’s Huck Finn Jubilee!
- Della Mae, a sensation in the music world across the country is an all-woman band that has a commanding, powerful, collective chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent that mines time-honored elements to create music that’s unmistakably fresh and contemporary.
