If the forecasted 20 inches
of snow for Bogus Basin
over the weekend isn't enough motivation to head for the slopes, maybe the live music in the Simplot and Pioneer lodges will be.
Every Saturday and Sunday through the season, many of Boise's most beloved musicians will play from 3 to 6 p.m. in the cozy lodges while the chairlifts spin and the snow piles up on the slopes outside.
On Saturday, Jan. 16, guitarist and singer-songwriter Johnny Butler
combines rock and jazz in high-energy acoustic instrumental pieces. He'll perform at the upper Pioneer Lodge from 3 to 6 p.m.
On Sunday, Jan. 17, Jonathan Warren
takes over the lower Simplot Lodge with uplifting, twangy bluegrass music—the perfect soundtrack for drinking a beer after a hard day of skiing the pow. To be exact, Warren describes his sound as "Progressive PsychoBilly Folk Grass tunes in rhythm with the wild."
