Add This Music Festival In Yellow Pine To Your Summer Calendar
Boise Musical Festival is a no-go for the second year in a row. Treefort Music Fest isn't until the end of September. Rock the Village has been re-planned as a vendor village with a few acoustic performers. Who wants to go all summer without some sort of music festival...again? Yellow Pine sure doesn't. The Yellow Pine Music & Harmonica Festival is returning.
The festival spans 3 days: August 5th, 6th, and 7th, 2021 at the Yellow Pine campgrounds. And...it's...free. Seriously, it's free to attend, free to camp, and free to park. Which is awesome, except that means there will probably be a HUGE turnout. So do you get there really early? Or do you filter in some time during the second day hoping people have gotten bored and decided to dip? You'll have to figure that out.
There is a harmonica workshop on the 4th and 5th leading up to the festival that you can sign up for, but that does cost money. $99 gets you skills building lessons, a T-shirt, and the opportunity to perform a little graduation concert for the opening ceremonies of the festival on Thursday night, the 5th. All the workshop and registration info can be found here.
You can also sign up to be a performer. Just keep in mind it's a harmonica focused event (I mean, the name gives it away). There's no compensation if you end up on one of the stages, of course. The event is free, remember? But there's also no fee to perform, so you might as well give it a shot if you're any good. Sounds like a fun time for the whole family.
