Bluegrass Festival

For those of you that remember the last Sandpoint, Idaho Bluegrass Festival, it was held in 1990 at the fairgrounds. The lead group was a bunch of unbelievable pickers that called themselves "The Seldom Scene." Well they are only seldom seen here in the Inland Northwest. This group plays all over the country in just about any venue that none of the band members have outstanding warrants.

For the first time since '90, this group is going to play at a festival near here. Medical Lake at City Park is hosting a killer Festival August 10-11-12. The lead group? Who else. The Seldom Scene will be heard from Sunday at 3:00 PM, but there will be several very good Bluegrass groups the rest of the weekend. I'll be there, for sure.

For detailed information on the other acts, or the "Scene," check their web site,, or just google the name.
