Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is pleased to welcome back The Jacob Jolliff

Band in a new live concert event at the Newport Performing Arts Center – The Jacob Jolliff Band:

Mandolin Mysteries Tour on Sunday, June 30, at 2:30 pm.

One of the country’s premier contemporary mandolinists, Jolliff (born in Newburg), has assembled a

quartet of spectacular musicians, bringing their genre-busting fresh take on finger-picking bluegrass

and vocal harmonies to Newport for one performance only.

“It will be great to welcome them back!” said OCCA’s Executive Director Jason Holland. “Last summer’s

performance was very well received, and completely sold out. We’re thrilled and honored that they’re

returning to Nye Beach. If you missed them last year, this is your chance to catch this unique and

mesmerizing sound.”

At 18, Jolliff was awarded a full scholarship to The Berklee College of Music, where he studied under

the late mandolin great John McGann. In 2008, Jolliff joined the New England-based roots music band

Joy Kills Sorrow. They spent the next few years touring extensively throughout the United States,

Canada, and Europe. Despite the hectic tour schedule, Jolliff still managed to graduate from college in

2011. The following year he went on to win the National Mandolin Championship.

In 2014, Joy Kills Sorrow went on an indefinite hiatus after three records, hundreds of shows, and

thousands of miles in a 15-passenger van. Almost immediately, Jolliff was contacted by the progressive

bluegrass jam group Yonder Mountain String Band. He toured and played with them until the end of

2019, releasing three albums in the process.

Jolliff’s current focus is The Jacob Jolliff Band. This ensemble of virtuosic pickers plays his original

instrumentals and showcases his vocals. Together, the group has released two albums, “Instrumentals

Vol. 1” in 2018 and “The Jacob Jolliff Band” in 2022.

Tickets for this one-afternoon-only event are $35 each when purchased in person at the Newport

Performing Arts Center box office (777 W Olive Street) or by phone (541-265-2787). The box office is

open Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Online ticketing is also available (additional fee applies).
