Jubilee, Kentucky is not a real place; but is depicted as a salute to the many, many stars, hopefuls, producers, technicians, audiences, listeners and fans of the “little guys” in the history of country music in America. This new musical hopefully gives a long overdue credit to the values, ideals and aspirations of the live and radio-based Hoedown and Jamboree shows that were so much a reflection of traditional culture in the rural United States in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Now available on Amazon. (Musical score provided for stage productions only and not included.) A new musical by Jack Wann and Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr.!
