The Jubilee, as it's known here in Sparta, was originally the Spartan movie theater. Agnes and Ernest Joines reworked the interior so that, today, it's the perfect place for dancing, meeting old (or new) friends or just listening to the music of the hills.

Globe Trekker The international program, Globe Trekker, shown in the United States on PBS stations, visited the Jubilee Saturday May 12. Host Justine Shapiro interviewed Ernest & Agnes and some of the Alleghany Jubilee regulars.  

We were recently featured in this VisitNC video about Blue Ridge mountain music.

People in this region have been making music since they came here. Old-time, hillbilly- whatever you call it- it's in our blood and part of our culture.
