    Jubillee coming to Fir Park

    Jubillee coming to Fir Park

    Celebrate the start of the school summer holidays with our School’s Out event at Fir Park.

    Providing the entertainment this year will be Country pop band Jubillee.

    This incredible twosome could well be the next big thing to emerge from Scotland and ironically that could well be because of the Pandemic.

    From playing to a few hundred people on Facebook every Sunday from their home in Motherwell due to COVID restrictions, to being courted by one of the world’s top producers of country music in the space of just 18 months, the story goes from strength to strength. Justine & Billy will travel to Nashville later this year to start work with Kent Wells – the musical director to Dolly Parton.

    With showcase concerts already lined up in Nashville this summer, it certainly looks like being an incredible rise to fame for this amazing Country Pop duo.

    Following Jubillee will be karaoke and music from DJ Jammin Jimmy.

    Date: 29th June 2022

    Location: Centenary Suite.

    Time: Doors open at 13.30

    Cost: £15pp includes buffet
