The annual Covered Bridge Jams is gearing up for its highly anticipated Bluegrass event, the “Covered Bridge Bluegrass Jamboree,” set to captivate audiences in June with an impressive lineup featuring renowned headliners and local favorites.

Headlining the event are two top-tier groups in the bluegrass genre: Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers and Authentic Unlimited. Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, named Entertainers of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in 2019, bring their chart-topping hits and dynamic performances to the stage. With a string of successes including a Top 5 Billboard album and numerous accolades, the Radio Ramblers are celebrated as torchbearers in mainstream bluegrass and gospel music.

Authentic Unlimited, recipients of the coveted Vocal Group of the Year and New Artist of the Year awards at the 34th annual IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards, promise to captivate audiences with their exceptional vocal talent and musical prowess.
