Join the Timberline Lodge for an umforgettable day of live Americana and Bluegrass Music on their historic outdoor amphitheater Labor Day, September 2, at 1 PM. Admission is free. Former Blue Grass Boy, Peter Rowan and his band along with Great Northern Planes, Broken Top Band, The Barn Birds, and Rita Hosking will be entertaining the guests for this holiday performance. Summer may be coming to a close but the entertainment continues.
The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band will be the headline act for the Timberline Americana Music Festival.. Okay… “living legend” is a bit over-used; let’s just say Peter Rowan is a dog gone bluegrass icon, and one of the most popular live acts on today’s festival stage. His legendary bluegrass career started in 1964 as a member of none other than the father of Bluegrass Music Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys.
Chris Kokesh and her excellent band Broken Top kick off the day with their wonderful blend of country-folk, bluegrass, and original Americana music. The Great Northern Planes will entertain with their traditional yet slightly irreverent bluegrass music featuring fine musicianship, 4 part harmonies, and showmanship to spare. Chris Kokesh comes back on stage with award winning North Carolina singer/songwriter Jonathan Byrd in a spectacular duet paring called The Barn Birds. Rita Hosking and Cousin Jack will perform. Rita possesses one of the most memorable voices in contemporary Americana music.
So join the festival on beautiful Mt. Hood, Oregon as they celebrate another Labor Day at historic Timberline Lodge. Admission is free. Yup…you read that right! Musicians are invited to bring their instrument and jam on the back pickin’ patio where The Oregon Bluegrass Association and various outdoor recreation groups will be set up for outreach, including the Pacific Crest Trail Association who will be offering short guided hikes on the section of the PCT which runs right behind Timberline lodge.
