Jamboree Welcomes Younger Musicians (2021):

We are extremely proud of the Jamboree's younger musicians. Stephen Schmidt's son, Stephen (age 19) along with his sister Sarah (age 21) do a great job singing and playing musical instruments on stage.

J.D. Hall (age 19) does a great job with vocals and playing numerous musical instruments including guitar and fiddle.

We are pleased to have newest member, Cade Filpus,(age 14)  and his siblings, Gage, Reese and Molly join us on stage...vocals accompanied with various acoustic instruments.  Cade plays banjo.
