The Newport Jamboree kicks off their 2017 season with their May Jamboree featuring the music of Mike Gangloff, Isak Howell, Rusty May and Corey Lee McQuade on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at the Newport Community Park.

Enjoy old time and bluegrass music by the Sinking Creek! We're happy to welcome local old time trio Mike Gangloff, Isak Howell and Rusty May followed by West Virginia's award winning dobro player Corey Lee McQuade who was recently featured in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine!

Banjos and fiddles, boards and bones in hand, the Black Twig Pickers dove into a living tradition of old-time music that surrounds their homes in Southwest Virginia and never looked back. Both scholars of the regional sounds and advocates of an ecstatic and highly personal approach to the music, the Twigs hold down local dance and bar gigs, play all manner of celebrations and every so often, hit the road.



Corey Lee McQuade is a flatpickin' dobro, clawhammer banjo and finger pickin' country blues guitarist based in Lewisburg, West Virginia.



The local Ruritan chapter will be selling concessions including hot dogs and snacks and be sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket and even a swimsuit.

We ask for a $5.00 donation from each adult to cover the bands. Kids under 12 are free.

Invite your friends and neighbors!

The Village of Newport Ruritan Park is conveniently located 1.3 miles down Highway 42 / 650 Bluegrass Trail in Giles County. Keep your eyes peeled for the signs off of 460 West.
