This Year Featuring Nationally Known Band: NU-BLU

"Hailing from Siler City, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist who also runs the band’s business. Calder Baker on vocals and banjo, and Justin Harrison on mandolin and fiddle  round out the quartet’s warm, layered, Appalachian sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road."

Also the loved Florida Band: Swinging Bridge

Swinging Bridge is a very accomplished and popular Bluegrass Band in not only SWFL but much of the South West! Hailing from Venice, Florida we are overjoyed to have Swinging Bridge back again to play in the Bluegrass Jamboree!

And our very own local band: Blu-Ridg

Blu-Ridg is a wonderful local Bluegrass Band right here from Lee County! We had Blu-Ridg serenading our guests as they first arrived at the 3rd Annual Bluegrass Jamboree, and we loved them so much that we asked for more!

It's Not Bluegrass without Spottswood

It's not the Bluegrass Jamboree without our wonderful Emcee Dick Spottswood leading the show for us! Dick Spottswood has an amazing Bluegrass career, and you can Catch his Bluegrass Radio Show on 88.5 HD-2 WAMU for some bluegrass music and news. He has Emcee'd every Bluegrass Jamboree, since the beginning!

Volunteer at the Bluegrass Jamboree

The Bluegrass Jamboree is the biggest event of the year for the Cape Coral Historical Museum, and we need all the help we can get!

To get this event up and running we do day before set up, morning of set up, running of the event, and then the evening clean up. If you love to be involved in your community, need volunteer hours for school, or just want to enjoy a great concert for free while lending a hand then please consider volunteering for us! 

Every volunteer will have a specific job, a break time where you will get to enjoy a free meal of BBQ from the Bluegrass Jamboree, a VOLUNTEER shirt, and a great time! For more information on volunteering please contact a representative of the Cape Coral Historical Museum.
