28th Annual Targhee Bluegrass Festival August 7-9, 2015

Started in 1987 Targhee Bluegrass is the Grand Daddy of Bluegrass Festivals in the Northern Rockies, combing great Bluegrass with the ultimate mountain lifestyle. Grand Targhee Resort's Bluegrass Festival has been a mainstay for Bluegrass aficionados for over two generations with stage appearances by artists and performers during that span that all Bluegrass Festivals envy. During the week leading up to the festival, many of the stage performers and artists play host to a very unique camp and music teaching experience by attending the Targhee Music Camp.

Keller Williams' Grateful Grass

Keller’s Grateful Grass delivers anything-but-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites. Grateful Grass often times has a rotating lineup and has included collaborations with The Keels, Keith Moseley, Jeff Austin, Michael Kang, Reed Mathis, and more! In 2010 Grateful Grass took the stage at Delfest for the first live appearance since 2008. In 2013, Grateful Grass ft. Keller, Jeff Austin, Keith Moselely, and Michael Kang reunited to benefit the Rex Foundation once again at The Fillmore in San Francisco for the event, Nightfall fall of Diamonds.


Donna The Buffalo

One the heels of their 10th studio album, "Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday," Donna the Buffalo enter their 25th year as a band. Known for original roots music since 1989, infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae, and country, Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear (vocals, electric guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard) joined by David McCracken (Hammond organ, Honer Clavinet & piano), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums). The group draws its inspiration from a cherished part of the American heritage: the old-time music festivals of the south that drew entire towns and counties together. "Those festivals were so explosive, and the community and the feeling of people being with each other, that's the feeling we were shooting for in our music," Jeb Puryear says. "Donna the Buffalo is an extension of the joy we've found."


Lake Street Dive

Classic soul and R&B, jazz, and British invasion form the backdrop for the exhilarating brand of pop for which Lake Street Dive has become known. Combine this with the unstoppable joy of their live shows and viral collection of Youtube videos, and you get the sum of the Lake Street Dive equation: pure pop music fun. Knock- your-socks-off vocals and virtuosic instrumentals top it all off, and with the release of their third record on Signature Sounds, which Popmatters calls "a staggering, monumental disc," this Brooklyn based quartet is garnering a rapidly growing fan base across the country. Lake Street Dive are Rachael Price, vocals, Mike 'McDuck' Olson, trumpet/guitar/harmony vocals, Bridget Kearney, upright bass/harmony vocals, and Mike Calabrese, drums/harmony vocals.


Elephant Revival

Elephant Revival formed on the banks of Spring Creek in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and then relocated back to Nederland, Colorado in fall of 2006. They loved one another's sense of shared values, and the way their disparate musical influences formed a more cohesive tapestry the more they played together. "It really is a natural confluence of our elemental influences," says bassist/multi-instrumentalist Dango Rose. That elemental tapestry extends beyond music to a worldview that is expressed not only through the music, but in the group's lyrics. That Elephant Revival worldview is connecting with fans: The band is a favorite at festivals such as Telluride Bluegrass, Vancouver Folk Festival and Old Settlers; and is selling out theaters in their native Colorado as well as legendary rooms such as Joe's Pub in NYC, The Ark in Ann Arbor and The Tractor Tavern in Seattle.


The Infamous Stringdusters

The Infamous Stringdusters consist of Andy Falco (guitar), Travis Book (bass), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), Andy Hall (dobro), and Chris Pandolfi (banjo). They sound like no one else, combining virtuosic chops on five traditional bluegrass instruments, with an ethos of pushing the genre forward. The Stringdusters' live shows take improvised string band music to new places, combining musicianship and songwriting with experimental performance and a contagious energy flowing between the band and crowd. Their groundbreaking musical proficiency is earning them critical acclaim, awards, and nominations aplenty; and has even attracted the attention of musical legends Phil Lesh and John Scofield, who have joined The 'Dusters on stage to offer up unforgettable, raucously crowd-pleasing sit-ins.


Greensky Bluegrass

If you're familiar with bluegrass music, then you're tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They're also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.


Mr. Sun

Spearheaded by legendary fiddler Darol Anger, Mr Sun is a revolutionary collaboration of 4 American string-band virtuosos from 3 different generations & diverse musical backgrounds. Moving through soaring melodies, titillating solos, groovy rhythms, & fluid time changes with both personality and unimaginable finesse, Mr. Sun offers a kaleidoscopic fusion of Jazz, Bluegrass & Classical themes.


Willie Sugarcapps

Thanks to a music gathering called The Frog Pond of some of the country's finest songwriters, pickers, and troubadours, a distinct connection between five artists—Grayson Capps, Will Kimbrough, Corky Hughes and the duo Sugarcane Jane featuring Savana Lee and Anthony Crawford—led to the birth of a band, the aptly named Willie Sugarcapps.

Their collective musical experiences mingle together to create a new kind of organic and artisanal music. It's laid back, it rocks, it comes from classic country, from the blues, from New Orleans and from the best kind of rock 'n' roll. It tells a story through five individual voices full of character and experience with humanity, energy and soul. It's comforting to know that music in the hands of these five artists still happens for no other reason than purely the sake of the music itself.


Two Bit Franks

Featuring some of the finest Bluegrass musicians in Montana, Two Bit Franks are John Lowell, Tom Murphy, Russ Smith, Jeff Shouse & Kevin Fabozzi. Fronted by Lowell of the nationally acclaimed band Kane's River, The Two Bit Franks bring together some of Bozeman's best bluegrass musicians to focus on original pieces with high levels of musicianship. Lowell's music resume is extensive and includes performing on Prairie Home Companion with his duet Growling Old Men, gracing the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine in 2009, and writing dozens of top-notch songs. Many of Lowell's songs have been recorded previously, but many await recording by the Two Bit Franks.


Jerry Douglas Presents: The Earls of Leicester

The six-man band encompasses veteran dobro master Jerry Douglas plus acclaimed writer, producer, and solo artist Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, renowned Nashville banjoist Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, second-generation fiddle phenom Johnny Warren, and Barry Bales, Douglas' longtime bandmate in Alison Krauss and Union Station, on vocals and bass. The new group is the product of Douglas's lifelong passion for the music of bluegrass pioneers Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and their band the Foggy Mountain Boys, whose seminal work in the '50s and '60s created the template for what we know as contemporary bluegrass, and transcended traditional genre barriers to popularize the music with an unprecedented mass audience.


Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn

Husband and wife duo and banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet. Their performances embrace a diversity almost unthinkable - coming from just two banjos and one voice. Washburn's beguiling composing, playing, and singing blend with Fleck's riveting and virtuosic musicianship to create music both unique yet familiar in texture. Fleck, a 15-time Grammy winner, has collaborated with Chick Corea, Oumou Sangare, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer, Dave Mathews, Earl Scruggs, and more. Washburn's banjo has taken her far beyond the usual old-timey comfort zone, musically and geographically. An alumnus of Uncle Earl, the powerhouse all-female stringband, Abby's adopted second homeland is China, and her music resounds with echoes of Appalachia and the tidal wave of emerging Chinese cultural influence. Together, Fleck and Washburn employ the relatively rare 3-finger and clawhammer banjo duet to create an explosion of musical white heat.


Hot Rize and Red Knuckles & The Trailblazers

It didn’t take long after Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick, Nick Forster, and Charles Sawtelle first appeared onstage together in 1978 for the bluegrass music world to realize that the Colorado band, Hot Rize, was something special. And by the time they bowed off the stage as a full-time act in 1990, they’d not only climbed to the top of that world as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s very first Entertainers of the Year, but their stature was recognized across the board, with a nomination for a then-new bluegrass Grammy, a four-star album review in Rolling Stone, tours across four continents, and a legion of up-and-coming, broad-minded young musicians ranging from String Cheese Incident to mando monster Chris Thile learning their songs and singing their praises. It’s no surprise, then, that 24 years after their last studio album, the foursome brings an even deeper strength to bear on their new record, When I’m Free (Ten In Hand/Thirty Tigers), out September 30.

Sure to be a crowd-pleaser, expect an appearance by the band’s Western Swing alter-ego sidekicks, Red Knuckles & The Trailblazers. The foursome (Red Knuckles, Wendell Mercantile, Waldo Otto, and Swade) plays ‘40s and ‘50s country music as well as you might expect from people who have mostly listened to the same jukebox for most of their lives.


Tony Trischka

Tony Trischka is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 45 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians with the many voices he has brought to the instrument.

With his fearless musical curiosity as the guiding force, Tony Trischka’s critically acclaimed release, Territory roams widely through the banjo’s creative terrain. Nine selections partner Tony with fellow banjoists Pete Seeger, Mike Seeger, Bill Evans, Bill Keith and Bruce Molsky. Twelve all-Trischka solo tracks explore a panorama of tunings, banjo sounds, and traditions; tapping the creative potential of America’s signature musical instrument.


Jim Lauderdale

Jim Lauderdale is a multiple Grammy and Americana Music Association Award-winning musician and one of the most respected artists working the Americana, Bluegrass and Country music communities today. Lauderdale, a master songwriter, has had his work recorded by artists such as Patty Loveless, George Jones, Shelby Lynne, Solomon Burke, The Dixie Chicks, Blake Shelton, and George Strait, who has had numerous hits with Jim’s songs. Lauderdale’s music has been featured regularly on the ABC hit show Nashville, and he appeared in the successful film Pure Country.


Chatham County Line

Entering their second decade as an ensemble, American bluegrass musical group Chatham County Line elegantly reconcile the past and future, tradition and innovation, on the fittingly titled Tightrope, available now on Yep Roc Records. The sixth studio album from the Raleigh-based four-piece follows 2010's winsome, soulful Wildwood and the career-spanning concert album and film undertaking Sight & Sound, which was released in 2012. "With anything you've done for a while," Wilson explains, "a period of reflection helps you identify your strengths. Doing the live album did that, and in a way, we do that every night with the songs we choose to play at a live show. We usually don't use set lists, we just play the songs that come to mind. That really helped us prepare for this record."


Blue Diamond Strings

Two renowned duos and two guys named Paul have joined forces to play a joyful amalgam of bluegrass, old time music, and blues. Breathtaking vocals, superb chops and deep knowledge of many styles of traditional music make for the spontaneous combustion that is Blue Diamond Strings. A partial “bandography” spanning 50 years: Asphalt Jungle Mountain Boys (Eric & Jody with Jerry Garcia), Any Old Time (Suzy, Kate), Blue Flame Stringband (Suzy, Kate, Eric), Arkansas Sheiks (Kate & Paul S), Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, Perfect Strangers (Paul K, Jody), Kleptograss (Eric, Jody, Paul, Paul), Good Old Persons, Blue and Lonesome (Paul S), Todalo Shakers, California Cajun Orchestra (Eric, Suzy), Bluegrass Intentions (Eric, Suzy, Jody).

Usually the ground is dry, but sometimes we have a late spring and there is a little mud in places. Wear sunscreen, hats, and drink water. We are at 8,000ft and you want to take extra precautions at this altitude. A lot of people bring their whole family, there is fun for everyone. Grand Targhee Resort offers many additional recreational opportunities that will be open during the festival some of these activities include; horseback riding, climbing wall, disc golf, scenic chairlift rides, hiking, cross-country mountain biking and downhill mountain biking.
