I just returned from a Musical Sojourn in Porto, Portugal, a weeklong musical experience featuring ALO’s Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, Natalie Cressman and Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band and multiple other projects), Nikki Bluhm, members of Greensky Bluegrass, Fruition and Railroad Earth, and many other artists from the extended jam and bluegrass world. This was a unique and intimate event with six days and nights of musical tourism in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. (The entire musician list is at the end of this article.)

Upon arriving at the Cascade Equinox grounds in Redmond, Oregon, just outside of Bend, attendees were welcomed by an atmosphere pulsating with anticipation. Festival-goers filled the air with tunes from the featured artists on the lineup, soaking in the majestic mountainous surroundings, and forming caravans as they made their way into the fairgrounds for a weekend brimming with live music, autumnal festivities, and communal camping.

Come jam with us for the inauguration of Cascade Equinox, a brand-new three-day event coming to Central Oregon on September 22 - 24, 2023, held at Deschutes County Fairgrounds.

This enticing first-time festival announcement brings a unique opportunity for the music festival subculture to converge at the nexus of diverse genres, fostering a vibrant celebration within our tight-knit community amidst the beauty of nature.
