YELLOW PINE, IDAHO
Each year, during the first full weekend of August, this sleepy mountain village is transformed into the largest festival of it's kind in the western hemisphere!
While still honoring our harmonica beginnings, we have evolved to include all music genres. Musicians from all over the world come to Yellow Pine to perform at the festival. The schedule will be updated as they are booked.
