IBMA 2023 Vocal Group of the Year, Authentic Unlimited, has been slated as the headliner band for the Winter Bluegrass Jubilee, our annual indoor music festival, taking place at Pickens High School on January 20th.  This group also came away with the 2023 IBMA New Artist of the Year Award.  As implied, this group is known for their “authenticity and unlimited supply of original material.”  This powerful bluegrass/gospel group is comprised of former band members of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver’s touring band.  Jerry Cole, Eli Johnston, and Stephen Burwell have combined talents with John Meador and Jesse Brock to produce a sound that will knock your socks off!  Both Jerry Cole and John Meador are bluegrass vocalists and play the bass and guitar respectively, while gifted musicians, Eli Johnston will be on banjo, Jesse Brock will be on mandolin, and Stephen Burwell will be on fiddle.   With this professional team of musicians, it is no wonder they are “taking the music industry by storm”! 

Outstanding vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, the highly respected Shannon Slaughter and his top-notch band will also be performing at the Winter Jubilee.  His band is comprised of Ron Inscore on the mandolin and vocals, Matt Wingate on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Trevor Watson on banjo and vocals, and Cliff Bailey on acoustic bass and vocals. This band is rooted in the ear-pleasing sounds of bluegrass and traditional acoustic country music.  As an artist, Shannon Slaughter’s songs feature a smooth contemporary sound, as well as featuring his originality as a writer and as a vocalist.  His success has been proven by his three #1 songs on Bluegrass Today Top 20 Song charts, Bluegrass Unlimited Top 30 Songs, and also other tracks appearing on Sirius XM Bluegrass Most Played Tracks and Albums charts.
