In House #1667: Live Music In the Region This Weekend

We base today's show on a rare premise as the playlist is made up entirely of acts hitting the region this weekend. The majority of these will be playing the Targhee Fest at the Grand Targhee Ski Area in Alta, WY. The impressive line-up at the second annual event includes the likes of Lyle Lovett, Sam Bush, Patty Griffin, Chris Smither, and Greg Brown, among others, and runs Friday through Sunday.

Elsewhere is the Music On the Rocks Festival in Idaho City, ID, also spanning three days. This year's inaugural event features the likes of Idaho folk icon Rosalie Sorrels, as well as Boston-based musician Eilen Jewell, who's lately been getting a lot of attention for her recent debut Boundary County. Other artists playing both festival gigs and seperate venue dates include Charlie Musselwhite, James McMurtry, and Hot Tuna Acoustic. Closer to home, Pocatello's Graybeard plays at Portneuf Valley Brewing tonight and the Snake Oil Stompers hit the First National Bar tomorrow night.

In House #1667.

Airdate: 7/21/06
Focus: Live music galore in the region this weekend, including the Targhee Fest and the Music On the Rocks Festival. Music from Chris Smither, Martin Sexton, Patty Griffin, Hot Tuna, James McMurtry, Greg Brown, Rosalie Sorrels, Eilen Jewel and more.
