The 17th Annual Northwest String Summit (String Summit) is one of the top boutique live music experiences in the country and presents an array of today's leaders in the Americana, Bluegrass, Indy Rock, and Jam genres. It all happens at the iconic Horning's Hideout (North Plains, OR) from July 19 - 22, 2018. Located just 20 miles outside of Portland, OR, Horning's Hideout, a private family-owned reserve of old-growth trees, wild peacocks, ponds, and campsites, stands as one of the most scenic festival sites in the country.
2018’s rendition of WinterWonderGrass lived up to its designation in every sense of the word this past weekend, as bluegrass fans from around the country gathered in majestic Steamboat Springs, Colorado to dance, drink and smiled the night away beneath the magnificent Park Range. The weekend more than lived up to expectation and hype, with incredible bluebird days and epic snow-covered nights, providing world-class skiing throughout the weekend and top-notch bluegrass to cap the night activities.
Two powerhouse bands in one night made for an incredible evening of music at the Park West Chicago on 2/17/2018. Night two of the 2-night run was a packed house filled with gawking jaws agape at the Grammy-winning Infamous Stringdusters together with the loveable Leftover Salmon. It was one of those shows that leaves you knowing what music should look and sound like.
Bluegrass, brews and the backdrop of the majestic Rocky Mountains, does it get any better my friends? The sixth annual WinterWonderGrass Music Festival is just around the corner, and this year’s rendition is shaping up to be the most successful year to date.
Americana originals Leftover Salmon announce their new album, Something Higher, coming May 4, 2018.

MJG Productions presents the 5th Annual Revival Music Festival at Harmony Park Music Garden in Clarks Grove, MN. The festival will take place May 26+27 with a pre-party featuring Leftover Salmon on May 25th and an Early Camping Option available May 24th.
Two progressive bluegrass titans shared a co-billing last weekend at The UC Theatre in Berkeley, California.

Leftover Salmon released a song from their forthcoming album several weeks ahead of the anticipated release in response to the terrorist attack at protests in Charlottesville, VA. Aptly titled "House of Cards," the song is a reaction to the recent political climate and the direct impact of the nation's leaders on actions of unsatisfied civilians. They also released an accompanying video that shows powerful footage from the last several months in the mainstream political media.
