Here in Montana we have a wealth of natural resources. Everyone knows that. But what you may not know, is that we also have a wealth of cultural resources. And if we don’t have it here, we bring it in.

The Paradise Valley Music Festival was a combination of all three. Superb local talent, amazing bands from elsewhere and the prettiest location you can imagine.

Plus, we had great company in Susannah, Will, Harrison, Colton and many of our neighbors and friends.

The lineup included Ben Burlington, Two Story Ranch, the Infamous Stingband, David Grisman Quintet + and James McMurtry…emceed by our own Rich Hall.

While the rest of the Paradise Valley and southwest Montana got rained on, we enjoyed a hole in the clouds and sunshine all day long.

Finn is ready to get his bluegrass on.
