The Wylie Jubilee Bluegrass on Ballard is an incredible celebration of freedom in the center of historic downtown Wylie, Texas.  The Jubilee features live music by world-class bluegrass bands as well as an amazing car show, arts and crafts, and much more.  Bring your instruments and JAM JAM JAM all day!

Alecia Nugent, a native of Hickory Grove, Louisiana, is a country, Americana, and bluegrass vocalist whose pure, angelic voice is described by Jerry Salley as “the definition of ‘real’ country music – she sings country and bluegrass music the way it was intended – with honest songs about genuine people, all in a time when we are aching for something ‘authentic.'”  Alecia has worked with legendary GRAMMY-winning producer Carl Jackson on all her albums, makes her home in Nashville where she makes music every day, and was a 2009 nominee for the IBMA Female Vocalist of The Year Award.

The captivating songs of Gold Heart have been heard around the world since 2005. It all started with an old guitar, a love for singing and creative minds. This family band will not disappoint with their compelling live performances and recorded studio projects. Gold Heart consists of Gold siblings, Tori (mandolin, vocals), Jocey (guitar, vocals and songwriting), Shelby (fiddle, vocals and songwriting), Kai (banjo) and father Trent (bass). They are expert songwriters, with Jocey and Shelby contributing the majority of the band’s material. They write with emotion and soul that can be heard in every song they sing. Their award-winning instrumental ability and accomplished, harmony-laden vocals are unique and rootsy.

Renowned guitarist Brad “the Shredder” Davis and his Brad Davis Trio bring a unique and exciting brand of acoustic Americana originals and entertaining, high-energy covers of hits made famous by Robert Palmer, the Eagles, George Jones, Steve Miller, Bob Dylan, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, and others.  Brad was a studio musician on Warren Zevon’s GRAMMY-winning album The Wind and is a veteran touring musician who’s shared the stage with legendary musicians including Marty Stuart, Earl Scruggs, Sam Bush, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, the Forester Sisters, and Billy Bob Thornton.

There are many great places to socialize, eat, shop, and jam in downtown Wylie!  See pictures from our past Jubilees in our Photo Gallery.  This event is FREE with no admission ticket required!  Here’s the tentative band schedule:
