The Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, has become somewhat of a mecca for bluegrass musicians and fans alike, consistently bringing together big names and small across the bluegrass scene to join together in collaboration and celebration. One such regular at the festival is Fruition, the five-piece jamgrass outfit from Portland, Oregon, who will be returning to the bluegrass festival slated for July 13th through 16th this summer.
The folks over at Jamgrass TV have just released a new pro-shot video of the Oregon band’s performance last year at the Northwest String Summit ahead of this year’s festival. In this latest video, Fruition goes into a fiery rendition of “Boil Over,” a song off their 2013 release Just One Of Them Nights. You can watch the group’s performance below as a way to get stoked on Fruition’s return to Horning’s Hideout this summer.
Just like in 2016, Fruition is slated to perform two sets across the duration of the Northwest String Summit, along with Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Del McCoury Band, JJ Grey & Mofro, Elephant Revival, Todd Snider & Great American Taxi, Turkuaz, and more. The festival this year will also see a performance by a new all-woman group dubbed Sideboob, which features Fruition’s Mimi Naja along with Allie Kral of Yonder Mountain String Band and Katelyn and Laurie Shook, also known as the Shook Twins. You can head over to Northwest String Summit’s website to get more information about the festival as well as to purchase tickets, as we can tell already that you’re not going to want to miss out this year.
