Music on Main announced five of its headliners last night, and once again the free concert series will feature a heavy helping of New Orleans funk.
Also on the bill this summer are acclaimed guitarists Bruce Cockburn, who will open the series June 30, Alejandro Escovedo on July 28 and Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real on Aug. 4. The Teton Valley Foundation still is lining up artists for July 7 and Aug. 11.
Ivan Neville, along with his bandmate cousin Ian, are scions of New Orleans’ first family of funk, the Neville Brothers. Osborne is a renowned guitarist who leads his own band and plays with just about everybody in the Big Easy.
Dumpstaphunk’s performance on Thursday night will be a perfect segue into the seventh annual Targhee Fest (July 15-17), which traditionally has a New Orleans flavor. In addition, What’s Good Here? Productions of Jackson has entered into a deal with the Knotty Pine to host bands following the Music on Main concerts. Looks like it will be another busy season of music on the west side.
