Outlaw show at the Old Pen


The Old Idaho Penitentiary hasn't housed prisoners since 1973, but on Sunday, Oct. 11, the outlaws will lead another uprising at the famed prison. The desperados of the Jeremiah James Gang will take the stage for a riotous live performance. With a whiskey-drowned sound, the group is an assemblage of honky tonk Idaho cowboys that draws heavily from the past. Considered alternative outlaw country, the Jeremiah James Gang is a rough and tumble group that sings songs worthy of any barroom chorus. They'll be playing alongside folk band Hillfolk Noir--a country-blues group comprised of husband and wife duo Travis and Ali Ward and a rotating cast of characters--making music that is equally eerie and melodious. Both Hillfolk Noir and the Jeremiah James Gang are recording live albums at the Old Pen as a part of the popular Music from Stanley series.

Sunday, Oct. 11, 3-7 p.m., $10, Old Idaho Penitentiary, 2445 Old Penitentiary Road. For tickets, visit
