The schedule is set for The Idaho Brewer’s Festival at Lakeview park in Nampa, Idaho. We are opening on Sunday, August 4th at 12:00 and going until 1:30. I will be there all afternoon on Saturday from 4:30 to 9:00 pm pouring beer for Jerry and Crescent Brewery. After we get done playing I will again be pouring beer for Jerry until the festival closes at 7 pm on Sunday evening. I have the set list completed and am now in the finishing stages of tightening up the nuts and bolts on some of the newer songs that I have learned over the last two months which include “Sosban Fach” or “My Little Saucepan”, “Can Cwrtyn Y Gwartheg” or “Does the Cowboy Ride”, “Drunken Lullabies” and “Diamonds & Rust”.
There is going to be Brew offered from Idaho Brewing companies, Live music from local musicians. Besides CYMRY there will also be Voice of Reason, Johnny Butler, Nathan J. Moody, Get Back, Sister Sara, Ticket to Ride, Jake Leg, Juke Daddy’s, Old Yeller comes on after us at 1:30 and plays until 2:30 and many more! There will also be a bounce house for kids, food from Brick Bistro 29 and Big Daddy’s Barbecue. Entry is $5 for adults. Kids under 12 free. For $25 you get a tasting cup and 16 samples of the different brews. The Boise Weekly did put the event in the paper this week but failed to mention some of the bands, so I wanted to give everyone a heads up on some of the other, local, amazing talent that Idaho and the Treasure Valley have to offer.
Thank you to J.T. from Smooth Avenue for coming to help me out with photos. This is going to be a great time. Hope you all can come out!
