Hello Idaho Bluegrass music lovers!


This is a request to come out and support the first IBA concert series this Thursday July 7th. How many times have we wished more high-quality national bluegrass acts would stop to play on their way through Idaho? Here is your chance to make that happen.

The band Never Come Down will be performing in Boise at Ironwood Bar and Grill. The band is the winner of Rockygrass(2019) and Freshgrass(2021) band competition, and Spark band award Wintergrass 2022. Lonesome Jetboat Ramblers will be opening. Doors open at 6, Jetboat Ramblers start at 6:30 and Never Come Down will play from 7:30-10PM. Tickets in advance are $12 per person, $15 day of show.

Weaving together modern and traditional styles of bluegrass and americana, Never Come Down is a Portland, Oregon based 5-piece composed of Joe Suskind (guitar), Crystal Lariza (vocals), Brian Alley (banjo), Kaden Hurst (mandolin), and Ben Ticknor (bass). Their dedication to thoughtful songwriting and dynamic arrangements highlight polished technical skills and a commitment to listening to each other. Formed in 2018, the band’s self-titled debut arrived shortly thereafter, and their second album “Better Late Than Never” was released in 2021. They’ve toured internationally and have found acclaim from festivals and venues such as Iceland Airwaves, John Hartford Memorial Fest, Americanafest, FreshGrass and RockyGrass.

The IBA has great plans to bring more national bluegrass acts to our area. We are in final discussions to book The Po Ramblin Boys for early fall. However, booking future bluegrass concerts is dependent on community and statewide support. Please purchase your tickets today and come out and support Idaho as a bluegrass hub for high quality bluegrass music.

Hope to see you there.

Cheers, Joe Gobel
