Greensky Bluegrass Returns to Northwest String Summit in 2020
Northwest String Summit Announces 2020 Initial Lineup
The 19th Annual Northwest String Summit will return to Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon on July 16 – 19, 2020.
This festival-goers favorite just released their initial lineup, and fans will be pleased to hear that Greensky Bluegrass will be returning after skipping 2019. But that’s just the start of exciting musical additions for String Summit attendees.
Umphrey’s McGee is scheduled to play one rare acoustic set and one fully electrified set, and Yonder Mountain String Band will return as the long-time festival hosts. The Infamous Stringdusters and Fruition will both get two sets, while Canadian outlaw country golden boy Colter Wall will be playing the festival for his first time.
Other noteworthy additions are Larry Keel Experience with Kyle Tuttle, the festivals artist-at-large. If we had any say, Kyle would be a permanent addition to the band.
