A collection of young, professional musicians, American Jubilee cut their teeth moonlighting as the ‘Terrapin Family Band’ at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads. They perform a mix of rearranged traditional Americana music and originals that draw inspiration from that same vein. Students of music history, American Jubilee tries to walk the same path that was first blazed by the likes of Levon Helm and Gram Parsons, and more recently has been furthered by musicians such as Ryan Adams or the Avett Brothers. While cemented by the core of Brian Lesh, Ross James, Scott Padden, Craig MacArthur & Alex Koford. American Jubilee often draws from the strong and growing population of young Bay Area musicians such as Grahame Lesh, Elliott Peck and Mike Pascale, as well as more established talent such as Mark Karan and Jon Graboff, to create a communal, family style of music that is hard to find elsewhere.
