Date(s) - Tue 25 Jul
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Idaho Botanical Garden

TUESDAY, July 25
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Band: Lonesome Jetboat Ramblers 

Join us for this bonus Great Garden Escape!

A bluegrass band with some heavy hitters collected from far flung reaches of this mighty land. Coalesced from the hills of Vermont, the swamps of Florida, the spruce bogs of Alaska, and the pine barrens of New Jersey, the Lonesome Jetboat Ramblers serve up red hot bluegrass and ballads that will make your lip quiver with memories of unrequited love. Featuring Dave McMeekin on banjo and guitar, Willy Dallas on mandolin, Ryan Blizzard on stand-up bass, Steve Baker on guitar and banjo, and the amazing fiddling of Adam Straubinger.

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!

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.
