Jake and Rebekah are two award-winning musicians that provide music for special events in several configurations. They are members of a five-piece bluegrass group that plays some of the hottest bluegrass tunes you’ve ever heard, but can reduce the number of players to form a duo, trio or quartet – whatever would best fit your needs. But one thing is guaranteed – no matter what configuration you choose, they’ll provide quality bluegrass that’ll have your guests stompin’, knee-slappin’ or dancing all party long.

Cold Creek is one of the most talented bluegrass bands in Utah, playing popular bluegrass hits as well as their own catchy original bluegrass music. There are lots of Utah bluegrass bands around, but Cold Creek is one of the best that the state has ever seen. This accomplished Utah bluegrass music band is in high demand and has toured internationally to enthusiastic crowds.

Julussa is best known for their unique and beautiful renditions of Scandinavian folk music, but are just as proficient with bluegrass music. What makes them stand out is their usage of the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle. It’s similar to a violin, but has extra strings that run beneath the fingerboard, producing echoing overtones that are hauntingly beautiful.
