With three festivals and several desirable club shows, Independence Day week is blowing up like never before in the Tetons. The transition of Grand Teton Music Festival’s (GTMF) Music in the Hole from an expansive outdoor lawn venue to the intimate Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village has opened the door for a new collaborative event at Snow King Ball Field and Teton Village Commons.
JacksonHoleLive, along with Town of Jackson and GTMF, stepped up to produce a free, eight-hour, family-friendly outdoor show that will feature a simulcast of the Festival Orchestra alongside five bands, including one of the biggest American roots bands of the last decade—Old Crow Medicine Show. Gruff-voiced nineteen year-old singer-songwriter Parker Millsap and his trio will make their Jackson debut, while veteran Celtic rockers Young Dubliners join some of Jackson’s finest talent in that of alt-country sextet One Ton Pig as well as multi-instrumentalists and folk-roots pickers Thomas Sneed with guest Ben Winship. The orchestra simulcast will split the event in half, while the evening will close with a classic fireworks display (which was nixed last year due to fire danger).
Simultaneously in Teton Village Commons, the orchestra will be simulcast in between live music from Jazz Foundation of JH and Salsa band Calle Mambo.
