2011 was the debut of Mountain Music Entertainment's brand new Historic Jonesborough Bluegrass Series and they were thrilled with the support they received from all the fans of bluegrass music. They closed our 2011 season with a sold-out concert with our headline artist, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out! Mountain Music Entertainment is now looking forward to a very successful 2012 with an unprecedented lineup of talent.

Historic JonesboroughMountain Music Entertainment has partnered with a couple of very special entities for the 2012 series. First, they are joining up with The Lyric Frizell Foundation, raising money for children's cancer research. The foundation was named for Lyric Alana Frizell who was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of leukemia at the age of 10 months.

They are honored to bring bluegrass music to the East Tennessee area while helping to raise money for such a great cause. In addition, Junior Sisk and Ramblers Choice are the new ambassadors of the Historic Jonesborough Bluegrass Series. Junior and his band will be making an appearance during the 2012 season and will also help spread the word about the concert series at their other shows across the country.
