Jubilee Mule is a New England band with deep roots in American traditional music. Founded ten years ago here in Marblehead, Jubilee Mule features Tim Rowell on banjo & vocals; John Price on vocals,
guitar & mandolin; Tim Baldanzi on mandolin & vocals; Bethany Weiman on cello & vocals; and Julie Metcalf on the fiddle.
JM has established itself as a vital part of the Boston music scene, it is a mainstay in the monthly Bluegrass Night series at the Cantab in Cambridge. Utilizing instruments from various countries, they deftly weave melodies from Appalachia to Bulgaria with harmonies straight out of Cold Mountain and weird tunings from somewhere in the future.
If Bill Monroe’s daughter married Frank Zappa’s son and they had a kid that turned into a band, you’d have Jubilee Mule.
