We are pleased to announce the formation of a second monthly IBA sponsored event. It will be the second Tuesday of each month at Liquid Laughs in downtown Boise. One hour sets are available for booking. All proceeds from the evening will go to the bands. If your band is interested, please contact us.
Wild Dirt Flower (singular) sprouted when Janel called and sang Amazing Grace at Jason Homey’s Beginner Bluegrass Jam. Barbara volunteered to kick it off on guitar, found some harmony, and—a duet was born. Soon they asked Petra, classically-trained violinist/bluegrass fiddler, and Les, rock guitarist/bluegrass mandolin player, to bow, strum, pick, and pluck along. Wild Dirt Flower, though based in bluegrass, presents songs from any genre that are edgy, earthy, mournful, strong on harmony, and showcase our gifted musicians who play and are willing to experiment on fiddle, cello, guitar, mandolin, bass, recorder, and…someday...banjo! From our far-flung roots in Nampa; Nashville; Luedinghausen, Germany; and Shelby, Montana, Janel, Barbara, Petra, and Les come together to practice, get better, perform, make beautiful music, and…..have fun!
Hickory Bluff is a 5 piece band with fiddle, guitar, banjo, bass and mandolin. If you are lucky, you will see them at the ISBA fall festival, the Kamiah Spring Jam - this year in June, and at the Treasure Valley Bluegrass nights.
