It was the touching history and tradition of Huck Finn Jubilee and its commitment to expanding bluegrass into new audiences in California that persuaded SCI to perform at this year’s event.

“Bluegrass has a way of inspiring imagination,” said band member Michael Kang. “It inspired a California family 37 years ago to dedicate their lives to putting on this annual event. It inspired us as a band to push the progressive limits of the traditional elements of the music, and we hope to continue the tradition this June by inspiring new audiences to love bluegrass and to grow from it as much as we do.”
