This edition of Jubilee mixes down-home humor with down-home music.

The Brothers Burley and Lardo (who have also performed as the Moron Brothers) began jamming at a Lexington fire station where Burley worked nearly 20 years ago. From those humble beginnings, they have gone on to become regulars at Renfro Valley Music Hall and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Burley says, “I never dreamed of doing some of the things we’ve done and [meeting the] people we’ve met—it’s like a dream come true.”

Meanwhile, Lawrenceburg-based Stringtown focuses on traditional bluegrass with a lineup of banjo, bass fiddle, acoustic guitar, and mandolin. The band members cite Bill Monroe and Rhonda Vincent as influences. In 2004, they won the International Bluegrass Music Museum Battle of the Bands.
