It’s Bluegrass Week — join the celebration
With the premiere program featuring the acknowledged masters of bluegrass music, Jubilee kicks off an all-new season — and a special week of programs dedicated to the bounty of music created right here in the Bluegrass State.
“Masters of Bluegrass,” airing Tuesday, June 10 at 8/7 pm on KET, features Del McCoury on guitar and vocals, Bobby Osborne on mandolin and vocals, J.D. Crowe on banjo, Bobby Hicks on fiddle, and Jerry McCoury on bass and vocals. The program also features behind-the-scenes interviews with these bluegrass legends.
Then, in Jubilee Live we present the live performance of Grammy- and IBMA award-winners Steep Canyon Rangers at Paulie’s Toasted Barrel. It’s a part of Lexington’s Best of Bluegrass (BOB) festival and airs Wednesday, June 11 at 9/8 pm on KET2.
Then, see five-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Dale Ann Bradley perform at Thursday Night Live in downtown Lexington Thursday, June 12 at 5:30/4:30 pm on KET KY.
Jubilee airs every Tuesday at 8/7 pm on KET and Saturday nights at midnight/11 pm on KET2.
