Opening Act to be announced
The Growling Old Men, John Lowell (guitar) Ben Winship (mandolins), are a couple of the most recorded and popular bluegrass musicians from these parts. Both are great songwriters and share a passion for fishing. They were selected to perform on the Prarie Home Companion when Garrison Keillor brought his live radio show to Missoula in 2009. They have been members of some of the best bluegrass bands to come out of the Rocky Mountain west, Deep River, Wheel Hoss, Kanes River and Loose Ties. They’ve graced the stage at numerous Missoula First Nights. This summer has them appearing with Kane’s River for a reunion show at the Targhee Bluegrass. We’re lucky to have them making a stop in Missoula. You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to see John and Ben play in this intimate concert settting.
