Leading up to and during the mainstage Jubilee, Jubilee-goers, live-music fans and supporters will have many opportunities to enjoy and support live music in the community.
“We have a killer line-up this year and again are proud to offer some great live music, for all tastes and ages, outside of our main stage,” said Executive Director, Carlton Munroe. “We’re excited with a new approach for the Songwriter’s Circle, a new local venue and of course the opportunity to promote live music in our downtown New Glasgow area.”
The weekend starts with the Jubilee Kick-Off Party on Thursday July 28th at Acro Lounge with Jubilee Main Stage and late-night stage alumni Alert the Medic with Grooveback. Admission is $10 at the door and show starts at 10:00pm.
On Saturday July 30th, the Jubilee welcomes all to the free Children’s Jubilee, from 12-4pm at Carmichael Park in New Glasgow and will feature Shelley Bean and the Duckety Muds and The Jugglin Bubblers.
