"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

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 were featured at the 2018 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 featured on a TEDx Talk in 2018 with Phoebe Hunt.

Jubilee is Aerie Walker on cello, Tuki Walker on fiddle and vocals, Miles Quale on fiddle and vocals, and Teo Quale on mandolin and vocals. Listen to their new EP Jubilee on iTunes, GooglePlay or cdbaby.com. Follow us on FB, IG and SoundCloud!

The Quale brothers Miles (age 14, on fiddle and vocals) and Teo (age 12, on mandolin and vocals) are state and national fiddle and mandolin champions, have been featured on KQED's The California Report, performed at venues such as IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Festival and CBA’s Father's Day Bluegrass Festival and have toured with sibling music duo and mentors, Tashina and Tristan Clarridge. Their band, Crying Uncle, has performed with bands such as Sideline Bluegrass Band and David Grisman Sextet's guitarist George Cole, and won the 2018 Pickin' in the Pines Band Contest. Recently, they did a TEDxTalk with musician Phoebe Hunt.

The Walker sisters, Aerie (cello) and Tuki (fiddle and vocals) are proud alums of Freight and Salvage’s summer program Fiddlekids and have made guest appearances with an eclectic variety of fiddlers ranging from Hanneke Cassel and Mads Tolling to Alasdair Fraser and the Scottish Fiddlers. The 15 year old twins have just released a new CD with their Celtic band, Where to Now. Aerie studies with Tashina and Tristan Clarridge and toured with them last spring. Aerie also plays a mean Texas fiddle! Tuki comes to bluegrass by meandering way of Celtic fiddle and jazz. She has appeared in “Jazz in the Neighborhood” with her mentor, jazz violinist Mads Tolling.
