Hillfolk Noir – Great Garden Escape

Date(s) - Thu 20 Jul
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Idaho Botanical Garden

Thursday, July 20
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Band: Hillfolk Noir

Uncorked: Zhoo Zhoo/ Hells Canyon
Special Guest: Glacier 45 Distillery 

Led by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumental Travis Ward, Hillfolk Noir is a trio of neo-traditionalists playing traditional music on traditional instruments for non-traditional times. They call it Junkerdash, and it’s a sound brewed from folk, bluegrass, punk, string-band blues and other influences musical and otherwise.

Connect with friends and family at our weekly Great Garden Escapes. Music has the
power to bring people together and we think that’s worth celebrating. Each week we
will be featuring either Great Garden Escape classics, or exciting new bands we hope
you will love as much as we do! Local restaurants, breweries, and wineries will be
onsite to help make for an entertaining night that’s both relaxing and fun!

Great Garden Escape is every Thursday evening, June through September and features upbeat dancing music and friends.

Bring your own low back chairs or blanket.  Picnic baskets are welcome or  guests can purchase  selections from the on-site food and beverage vendors.
