What You Didn’t Know About the Music Scene in Teton Valley Idaho

One of the best surprises I got when I opened Dreamcatcher in 2015 was how much live music there was in the valley.  In fact, the valley has become a destination spot for music lovers everywhere.

Here’s Why…

Music on Main-For the past 12 years, Victor, Idaho has hosted the Music on Main Series. Put together by the Teton Valley Foundation, the event is free (donations) and offers food, beer/wine, kid activities and remarkable music. This year’s series started June 21st with Grammy-nominated John Fullbright, and then went on to include; Orgone, Kitchen Dweller, Within, Amy Helm, March Fourth, Hot Club of Cowtown and closes August 9th with Jamie McLean. The sense of community is evident as everyone pulls out their folding chairs and blankets, buys food and libations from their favorite kiosks and then catch up on their lives to the sound of these great acts. A Thursday night treat for our guest for sure since we are 8 minutes away! Here’s a link for more information.

Symphony on Sunday- If you happen to be with us on a Sunday night, you may get to attend the symphony in the mountains for free! This new series occurs on four Sundays; July 1st and 29th, August 19th, and September 16th from 4pm-6pm in Driggs, Idaho which is 12 minutes from us. These outdoor concerts are performed by Idaho Falls Symphony Orchestra musicians and the Grand Teton Music Festival musicians. Dreamcatcher will be happy to provide a picnic and chairs for your enjoyment.

Targhee Music Fest-Starting Wednesday July 13th until July 15th, the Targhee Music Fest presents three days of eclectic music and artists nestled with the Teton Mountains as a backdrop. How could you go wrong? Hosted by Grand Targhee Resort, the event is 25 minutes away from Dreamcatcher so you can sit in the beautiful outdoor setting, eat at one of the resort’s restaurants and then come back to the bnb for a quiet and relaxing stay. Some of the acts in this year’s lineup include; The Main Squeeze, Brandaon ‘Taz” Niederauer, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds and The Teskey Brothers to name a few. These are stellar acts that are on tour for the summer and we get an opportunity to see them without traveling to the big city! Here’s a link for tickets and more.

Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival-Now in its 31st year, this event has become an annual go-to for the bluegrass fan. Running from August 10th-12th, this event is termed the “Grand Daddy of Bluegrass Festivals in the Northern Rockies”, and will not disappoint. World renown artists and performers are scheduled that make this the highlight and envy of the summer music festivals. Another reason this is unique to the valley is because it is proceeded by a week-long music/teaching camp hosted by some of the festival’s performers. Here’s link for tickets and more.
