The Northwest's premier acoustic music festival returns for its seventh year to beautiful Horning's Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, on July 18-20. The event boasts three days of nearly all-acoustic music, culminating each night with main stage performances from musical hosts Yonder Mountain String Band, this year joined by special guest fiddler Darol Anger (David Grisman Quintet, Psychograss) and banjo/guitar virtuoso Danny Barnes (Bad Livers, Tim O'Brien Band). Yonder Mountain String Band has been called "the fastest growing acoustic band in history."

Also on the bill for the 2008 String Summit are Keller Williams performing two nights - one solo and the second with Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), Gibb Droll (Marc Broussard), and Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio, Susan Tedeschi, Phil Lesh). Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon will perform with Billy Nershi (The String Cheese Incident) and friends - which likely will include Vince Herman also of Leftover Salmon. A very special appearance by Guitar phenom Bill Frisell in duet setting with Danny Barnes will precede this year's super jam, to be hosted by Danny Barnes. Past year's Super Jam performers have included Chris Thile, David Grisman, Vasser Clements, Hot Rize, Jerry Douglas and Tim O'Brien.

On Friday evening (August 18), String Summit presents the fifth annual Band Contest, where four competition finalists will compete for the opportunity to perform on the main stage the following year. This year, 2007 Band Contest winners Head for the Hills are on the bill.

The tree-lined landscape of Horning's Hideout is the perfect serene setting for an intimate weekend of all acoustic music. Located just 20 minutes west of Portland and nestled in a hidden canyon of the rolling hills, dense trees and peacocks, Horning's Hideout is truly one of Oregon's best kept secrets. All ages are welcome and children under 10 years old are free with a paying adult. Three-day festival passes include music, crafts, vending, and plenty of on-site camping and parking. A family/disabled camping area is available. Tickets are $140 - $155.00 (includes parking, camping and county fees) and are on sale now at http://www.ticketswest.com.

I am so excited for this festival. I bought my tickets about a month ago. I went last year and it was a lot of fun. Hornings has got to be the best venue ever! And the late night picking is a blast.

I've been going to Horning's several years running. It is by far my favorite place to see music. It's going to be a bit strange this year without SCI playing, but I'm sure it'll still be a blast.

And Donna, get a job... or find something to do. You have way too much time on your hands.

Wow, what a line up. That tells me that half of salmon and a good chunk of cheese are going to be there. Add some KW, Frisell, and Yonder and the possibilities are endless.

Yonder is better on their own than with Fishman...Either way, if they MUST play with a drummer, I' rather se them play with Sipe. He is a much superior talent to Fishman in every way, and is much more experienced at playing in a "bluegrass" setting.

this bums me out. I've gone to this festival 4 years in a row because it is unique, there's always TONS of great (and relatively unheard of) pickers and sit-ins, but this year is just another jamfest. I'm tired of this sort of thing. Leftover Salmon and SCI are there, and they aren't even Salmon and SCI....bring out the patchwork, bust out the pogo sticks and hula hoops, its gonna be a doozie at the summit this year.
