One Year After The Music Stopped In Idaho

Peter Lovera
Treefort Music Fest


It’s been a more than a year since bands and musicians across the world cancelled tours and live music stopped. This week in Boise — if we weren’t in a pandemic — the downtown would be packed with hundreds of bands and thousands of music fans all gathered for Treefort Music Fest.

While live music with big crowds in indoor spaces still isn’t possible, Idaho Matters has some suggestions for music to listen to now while we wait out COVID-19.

Frankie Barnhill is the Senior Producer of Idaho Matters, Boise State Public Radio's daily show and podcast. She's always interested in hearing surprising and enlightening stories about life in the West. Have an idea for Idaho Matters? Drop her a line!
