Blue Grass Jam Camping Music Festivals at Broken Arrow
Musical Festivals in Idaho are annual musical events drawing in a great crowd of people. Broken Arrow is proud to host an annual “Blue Grass Jam Session and Camp Out in Gibbonsville Idaho,” the weekend AFTER Labor Day weekend each year. This Blue Grass Jams Camping Musical Festival is a camp out that was started in 1995 by a group of blue grass musicians from Salmon, that frequently play at the Broken Arrow Resort. There will be music on Friday, and all through the weekend with folks gathering around the property to play.
2012 Blue Grass Jam Camping Music Festival dates:
September 7- 9, 2012
The fantastic food, smiling faces, and friendly people create a “down home” atmosphere that musicians can’t resist. Starting on Friday and sometimes lasting until Tuesday, musicians from Montana and Idaho, meet to play a variety of music from old time fiddle tunes, country classics, to blue grass, all day and most of the night. It has been said that “some pickers never sleep.”
Upon arrival at the camp out, you find at times, several different groups of musicians of all ages, under shade trees or awnings playing their favorite tunes or learning new ones in a relaxed, carefree setting. It is entertainment at its finest.
