In mid-April, the Sawtooth Valley Gathering Facebook page shared a photo of a snow-covered field with the hash-tag #betterthanwaistdeep. With the Sawtooth Range directly behind the park, the area is still very much gripped in winter. But, by the end of July, the high mountain prairie will host, under the gloriously jagged peaks, the third annual gathering.
Lineup: The Brothers Comatose, Dead Winter Carpenters, Billy Strings, Three on the Tree (featuring Scott Law, Greg Loiacono, & Brian Rashap), World’s Finest, Yak Attack, John Craigie, Free Peoples, Brad Parsons Band, Dodgy Mountain Men, Pause For The Cause, Tylor & the Train Robbers, Sheep Bridge Jumpers, Steph Sloan, Thistledown, Holus Bolus, Accidental Hitchhikers, Bamboozle, Hurdy Gurdy Girls, High Mtn.
