In House #1682: This Weekend's Targhee Bluegrass Fest; Nickel Creek in Salt Lake City
Plenty going on, musically speaking, throughout the region this weekend-- much of it featuring exclusively roots and acoustic flavored stuff. Beginning in Alta, WY, it's the annual Targhee Bluegrass Festival being held at the Grand Targhee ski area. The always talent-full lineup features three days of bluegrass, Americana, and the like. This year includes long-known names like Peter Rowan and Tim O'Brien, as well as newer acts like Uncle Earl.
Going on at the same time, a few miles to the north in Challis, ID, is the Braun Brothers Reunion, put on every year by Idaho musician Muzzy Braun. This year's line-up once again features Braun's sons' bands, Reckless Kelly and Micky & the Motorcars, as well as a diverse lineup that includes The Greencards and Cross Canadian Ragweed.
The weekend closes out in Salt Lake City with Nickel Creek playing the summer concert series at Red Butte Garden. The envelope-pushing new-grass trio's most recent release is last year's Why Should the Fire Die?
In House #1682.
