Yonder Mountain returns to 7th NW String Summit

Jamgrass standard bearers Yonder Mountain String Band will return as host band for the seventh year at Northwest Sting Summit July 18-20 at Horning's Hideout in North Plains OR. Also featured on the bill are special guests Darol Anger and Danny Barnes, both standout performers familiar to roots festival attendees.

This is a festival rooted in the jam market. Other jam artists on the bill are Keller Williams, Drew Emmitt, and Bill Nershi. Jazz guitarist Bill Frisell will appear in a duet performance with Barnes. Yonder Mountain will close the show each of the festival's three nights culminating in a super jam with many of the festival artists on stage.

With its natural amphitheater and ample primitive camping, Horning's Hideout is a beautiful festival venue. One of the highlights of the festival is its Friday night band competition. Tickets ($140) are available at the festival's website.
