The Popular Group to Share the Stage This Father's Day Weekend with The Del McCoury Band and Rhonda Vincent, the Greater Ontario CVB Announced Today
Ontario, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
Bluegrass traditionalists Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice are the latest in an impressive lineup of performers to take the stage at the Huck Finn Jubilee this Fathers Day weekend, organizers announced today.
Other big name performers confirmed for the June 13-15 festival include Grammy Award winner The Del McCoury Band and Queen of Bluegrass Rhonda Vincent, with more headliner announcements to come as the event draws near.
Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, nominated for 16 awards for the 40th annual Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA), is touted as one of the nations most authentic bluegrass groups. Sisk won male vocalist of the year in 2013 from both the International Bluegrass Music Awards and the International Bluegrass Music Awards.
This is only the beginning, said Michael Krouse, President and CEO of the Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau, which this year assumed ownership of the nonprofit event. We fully expect to be announcing more outstanding headline performers in the weeks to come.
Huck Finns Jubilee is an annual three-day celebration of old Americana, featuring bluegrass and country music, old time-themed activities and contests, a jammers campground, fishing, camping, frog-jumping, raft-building, living history displays and everything Huck Finn. Held every Fathers Day weekend in Ontario, California, it is billed as one of the largest bluegrass festivals west of the Mississippi, drawing visitors from throughout the United States. Tickets to the jubilee are scheduled to go on sale soon. For information, visit http://www.HuckFinn.com.
The Del McCoury Band took home his second Grammy Award this year for best bluegrass album with Streets of Baltimore, a tribute to the city where McCoury got his start working for a stint with the father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe. It was McCourys 10th nomination.
Vincent, dubbed the New Queen of Bluegrass by the Wall Street Journal, this week released Only Me a two-disc combo of both bluegrass and country. Known for her progressive chord structures and multi-range vocals, she has worked closely with many in the industry, including Dolly Parton, and Alison Krause.
