Hurdy Gurdy Girls is an all girl string band from Hailey, Idaho performing original songs steeped in the old-time music tradition and peppered with an outlaw country feel.  Their songs are about burning desires, life’s tough decisions, family, and of course, finding your way to the mountains we call home. The music will give you an porch swinging feeling mixed with a honky-tonk vibe, and it will always leave you feeling good and tapping your toes.  HGG formed six years ago with Joy Lee on guitar and vocals, Annie Maude on fiddle and mandolin, and Natalie Rose driving the train with her stand up bass.  Come out to experience the music of the Hurdy Gurdy Girls….you might even get a dance afterwards!

Trees of Wisdom

Treasure Valley

Trees of Wisdom is a collaboration of 6 dedicated musicians (Ryan- drums, Alex- rhythm guitar and vocals, Bobby- bass, Kristo- lead guitar, Vader-saxophone, Devon- lead vocals) from within the Treasure valley. We have been jamming and bringing funk to barns, off the flat beds of old nasty beat trucks, back yards and bars for the past three years. Starting with gradual momentum after honing and tightening our musical chemistry together the last few years, March 2019 just finished a 3 song recording session right out of the Treasure Valleys own Boise Hive. Kick'n off a few songs and eventually a demo, and a sling of thumping good barnshows, we bring high energy dance grooves combining reggae ska funk with blues rock to create an all original northwest Idaho grown sound. Pulling inspiration from all aspects of life here in Idaho as well as from musical and cultural influences each of us has experienced throughout their own weird human experience, to produced a unique blend of musical sounds and collaboration found no where else. From tight knit communities of people that have grown close to the land, to vast array of nature found in the transition zones; ranging from high desert to the crystal clear lakes found all over in the densely wooded mountains, all contribute to the message and presence of our music.

Travelin' Miles

Boise, ID

 I am a "one-man-suitcase band" from Boise. Travelin' Miles is my stage name. My name is Jeremy Parrish. I grew up in Twin Falls. Graduated from Hansen High School in 2001. Traveled all over this beautiful country as a beatnik and lover of Americana. I kick a homemade suitcase percussion kit, pick a lean acoustic guitar and lick a mean harmonica. I write my own songs, influenced by country, folk, blues and rockabilly. I have two self-releases in print and working on my third now. I play harmonica on almost every song I sing, so I think this festival would be a HOOT!
