Jesse Milnes

Jesse Milnes grew up in the world of West Virginia old-time music (his father is fiddler and folklorist Gerry Milnes). Though he is widely known as a fiddle player, Jesse’s first instrument was a guitar and he has developed a personal style of finger-picking, drawing on influences from blues to bluegrass to country. He has played fiddle and guitar with many country, old-time and bluegrass bands over the years, including the Sweetback Sisters, a country band for which he was also a main songwriter. Jesse has won many local and regional fiddle contests, including the WV State Folk Festival in Glenville, WV, and the Ed Haley Fiddle Contest in Ashland, KY. Jesse and his wife, Emily Miller, recently toured in Australia and California and recorded their first album as a duo. They live in Valley Bend, WV.

Old Time Music Week

Old Time Music Week is a part of the Arts Education program at Stuart’s Opera House which reflects the rich traditions of music and storytelling of our Appalachian Foothills Region.

Classes are offered in some of the common Appalachian instruments, students can participate in an old-time string-band ensemble, and workshops are offered to learn about the historical development of the music and culture.
