Northwest String Summit will live up to its name once again when many of the country’s most beloved string bands and more gather at North Plains, OR’s picturesque Horning’s Hideout on July 18th through 21st, 2019.
On Tuesday, the beloved four-day music and camping festival finalized their lineup with the additions of Galactic featuring Erica Falls, Ayla Nereo, supergroup Hawktail featuring Brittany Haas, Paul Kowart, Jordan Tice and Dominick Leslie, TK & The Holy Know-Nothings, The Quick & Easy Boys, Tyler Grant and more.
Northwest String Summit also recently added Dark Star Orchestra to their already extensive bill. DSO will offer up “In The Spirit Of 8/27/1972″, a special recreation of the Grateful Dead’s legendary August 27th, 1972 concert, which took place at Veneta, Oregon’s Old Renaissance Faire Grounds (now the Orgeon County Fair). Longtime friend of the Grateful Dead, author, and counterculture figure Ken Kesey served as the evening’s emcee, as the Dead offered up a three-set musical marathon over five hours.
As previously announced, Yonder Mountain String Band (x2), Trampled By Turtles (x2), The Infamous Stringdusters (x2), Fruition(x2), Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Lil Smokies, Shook Twins (x2) and more will perform at the 18th annual edition of the festival.
