Since 1989, Bonepony has been entertaining audiences with an original, foot-stomping blend of roots rock, blues, soul, and elements of bluegrass. This edition of Jubilee features an energized performance by the band at the 2005 Master Musicians Festival in Somerset.

Though Bonepony performs mostly with acoustic instruments and takes its cues from various forms of American roots music, its style also displays an innovative approach to songwriting and a hard-working attitude toward performing. The band members cite a mixed bag of influences, from Led Zeppelin to George Jones and from Muddy Waters to J.D. Crowe. The group collaborates on each song, with each member providing music and lyrics and working toward a shared primary goal: Get the crowd moving.

Bonepony features founding member Scott Johnson on vocals; Kenny Wright on drums and guitars; and stringed-instrument prodigy Nicholas Nguyen on banjo, guitar, and several other instruments. The band has recorded three studio albums and tours extensively throughout the Southeast.
