The Cumberland Gap Connection brings together the songwriting, vocal, and instrumental talents of four young bluegrass musicians from Kentucky and Tennessee. On this episode of Jubilee, recorded at the 2008 Renfro Valley Bluegrass Music Festival, the group delivers an exceptional performance of traditionally inspired, original tunes.

From its inception, the groupís efforts have taken a unique, hard-driving style of bluegrass to a new level, combining clever instrumentation with a distinctive knack for vocal harmony. Add to that the rigorous sincerity of songwriter Mike Bentleyís talented song-craft, as well as the fun sense of camaraderie shared within the band, and itís easy to see how the group has won many fans and much critical acclaim in a very short time.

For any fan of good Bluegrass music, Cumberland Gap Connectionís Jubilee performance shows a new group dedicated to the old sounds while staying true to its unique vision, forging ahead with its own style.
