A new farmers market opens Saturday in Idaho’s capitol city. The Boise Farmers Market comes on the heels of a big dust-up with the city’s long-standing market. Now, each side says Boise can support both markets.
Graphic Depictions is a new play that opens Wednesday at Boise Contemporary Theater (BCT.) Cleveland based playwright Eric Coble created this one-character show. Coble tends to speak in metaphors. Ask him why a nationally known playwright would premier new work at Boise Contemporary Theater. He calls a premier a birth.
Treefort Music Fest wrapped up in the early morning hours Monday. More than 260 indie and emerging bands performed at the four day festival. Festival director Eric Gilbert is calling the event's second year a big success, despite being exhausted.
"Losing my voice a little bit, not a lot of sleep, but I'm feeling good -- body's sore," Gilbert says.
In between the myriad of shows to see today at Treefort Music Fest – including K. Flay, Yacht, and Wooden Indian Burial Ground – a food truck rally is happening. Local vendors are selling their delectables throughout the festival.
Boise-based singer-songwriter Kelsey Swope, a.k.a. “Grandma Kelsey," will perform at Treefort Music Fest on Sunday. She played for us in the studio recently for what we're calling Studio 208 Sessions.
Over the coming months we hope to bring you more in studio performances from artists around Idaho. So enjoy and if you know of a local band or musician we should invite into our studio send them our way.
