Every summer music festival season brings a slew of new concepts and destinations for “festivarians” to pick and choose from. You have to marvel at the fact that so many continue to thrive year after year considering the number of options that are out there. In Colorado alone, thousands of tourists from everywhere come to enjoy countless summer music festival options. Maybe you made it to Rockygrass in July and rejoiced in the revival of a flood-ravaged site miraculously sprung back to life with true roots community effort.
Portland, Oregon based Fruition have emerged as a must-see band on the Americana scene and have captured audiences with their soaring 3-part harmonies and new-grass string arrangements. With no signs of slowing down, Fruition are heading back on the road and headlining their first East Coast run following successful tours with Greensky Bluegrass and The Infamous Stringdusters.

No single thing makes a festival the “best festival ever.” Sure, one great band can make it really good. Or maybe the campground scene was where it was at. But it’s really when you group those moments with the ones of unbearable laughter, silly dancing, and inspirational people that a festival becomes the “best ever.” And you know what? The Northwest String Summit consistently brings the best.
Fruition is a great word. We all love realizing the fruits of our labors and when ideas emerge from dreams into real world successes. The band Fruition, hailing from Portland, Oregon has these good things happening with their 11 track album, Just One Of Them Nights, scheduled for release July 30th. Starting as a collection of street musicians, Fruition is a band of musicians that exemplifies, the sentiment, “For the sake of the song.” Fruition is:Mimi Naja: Mandolin, piano and vocals
