Singalong Jubilee was a CBC Television programme produced between 1961 and 1974. It featured musical performances by local singers, playing folk, country, and gospel music, in studio on stage and on location. Anne Murray, Catherine McKinnon, and Ken Tobias first gained fame from appearing on the show, which, while a separate programme, is often considered a sister series to the equally long-running Don Messer's Jubilee, which featured many of the same performers including McKinnon. Singalong Jubilee was produced by Manny Pittson in Halifax, in Atlantic Canada, and was hosted by Bill Langstroth, with Brian Ahern was the music director. Langstroth, who was married to Anne Murray from 1975 to 1998, died May 8, 2013 aged 81.[1]
