About the Artist:
An acoustic pioneer and innovator, mandolinist/composer bandleader/producer David Grisman has forged a unique personal artistic path for nearly half a century, skillfully combining elements of the great American music/art forms — jazz and bluegrass with many international flavors and sensibilities to create his own distinctive idiom — “Dawg” music (the nickname given him by Jerry Garcia.) In doing so, he’s inspired new generations of acoustic string musicians, while creating his own niche in contemporary music. His career is littered with recording and performance collaborations with the biggest contemporary artists of our day including Sam bush, Jerry Garcia, Del McCoury, the Grateful Dead, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs, and James Taylor.
In the 30 years since forming the seminal group the David Grisman Quintet, David’s ensembles have won numerous polls and awards, headlining major jazz, folk and bluegrass festivals around the world.
Come enjoy an evening with David Grisman under an open sky at the base of Montana Snowbowl, offering an epic experience in-synch with the natural beauty offered at Missoula’s local ski hill.
Sam Bush, a well-known mandolin player, will headline this yearâ€™s River City Roots Festival in downtown Missoula. The annual music, arts and culture festival is set for Aug. 23-24.
Bush won the 2009 Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement award, is known as a founding member of Newgrass Revival, and is considered the originator of â€śNewgrassâ€ť music. His most recent album â€śCircles Around Meâ€ť was No. 3 on the U.S. bluegrass charts.
Bush will play from 8:30-10:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24, on the Main Street main stage. The rest of the 2014 line-up will be announced at a later date.
Roots Fest is an admission-free festival that drew more than 15,000 people last year. The two-day event also features a juried art show, a four-mile competitive and fun run, a family fun festival in Caras Park, and a 15-vendor food court on Ryman Street. The 2014 event will also include a stand-up paddle board competition to be held on the Clark Fork River.

Spring is here, which means itâ€™s concert season in Missoula, and this year some of the biggest names in bluegrass are coming to town.
The 2014 Ruby Jewel Jamboree will feature a series of concerts at Rubyâ€™s Inn in Missoula, bringing in top-tier bluegrass talent like the Kathy Kallick Band, Junior Sisk, Bradford Lee Folk and others.
The Ruby Jewel Jamboree was started in 2010 and named after Ruby Erck, whose family owns a group of hotels in Montana. The bluegrass tour is the pet project of Rubyâ€™s daughter Phyllis Erck, who is also the president of the Montana Rockies Bluegrass Association.
Jamboree producer Kimberlee Carlson said Phyllis is on a mission to bring the popularity of bluegrass in the eastern United States to the West. The tour was established with the goal of bringing big-name bluegrass artists as well as up-and-comers to Montana and give local talent a place to showcase their work. Â read more…
