Jackson is getting its own version of Music on Main this summer.
After years of talk by various promoters, the new operators of the Snow King Center rink have organized a free concert series similar to the outdoor shows that have been a hit in Teton Valley, Idaho.
Here’s the schedule, with a sixth event yet to come:
Saturday, June 23 — The Dunwells
Saturday, July 7 — Boom Chick
Wednesday, July 25 — Justin Townes Earle
Wednesday, Aug. 5 — The Features
Sunday, Aug. 26 — Robert Randolph and the Family Band
Local bands will open. Beer and food concessions and sponsorships will pay for the music, and any remaining proceeds will go to youth hockey and skating programs at the rink. The shows are open to all ages.
The biggest name on the slate is Randolph, who first played the Teton area at the Knotty Pine in 2002. Since then the pedal steel player has returned to open for the Black Crowes in 2006 and play the Jackson Hole Music Festival in 2008.
