Like any good Idaho family, the Brauns hold a summertime reunion each year. The difference with theirs is that everyone is invited ... even if your last name isn't Braun.
This year, the event takes place August 12-14 with a lineup that includes the usual suspects: a group of musicians so popular that Muzzie and Co. have taken to selling advance tickets—including a limited number of discounted passes available online—and they will go fast.
On Thursday, Aug. 12, catch the musical stylings of the Jeremiah James Gang; an acoustic show featuring Cody Canada, Slaid Cleaves and Hayes Carll; and Asleep at the Wheel.
On Friday, Aug. 13, entertainment is courtesy of the Frim Fram Four (fun!); the Annual Braun Brothers Reunion Singer/Songwriter Jam; the Braun Family and Friends; the Randy Rogers Band and Cross Canadian Ragweed.
The weekend wraps up on Saturday, Aug. 14 with Blind Driver; the Reunion Guitar Pull; Two Tons of Steel; Billy Joe Shaver; the crowd-pleasing Micky and the Motorcars and an act that has made the Braun name famous, Reckless Kelly.
