Braun Brothers Reunion Festival

Challis, Thursday-Saturday, Aug. 9-11

by

Family reunions should be joyous occasions, but when the rubber hits the road they often devolve into rounds of bickering. That is, unless you're the Braun Brothers, in which case your reunion might transform instead from a small family gathering into one of Idaho's best-known homegrown music festivals. Now in its 14th year, the BBRF is a Challis tradition, drawing roughly 3,000 attendees in for three days of bluegrass, Americana and Texas rock in a stripped-down venue that's all about the music, not the merch. This year, 16 acts—including Braun brothers bands Micky and the Motorcars, and Restless Kelly; and groups like Turnpike Troubadours, and Jeff Crosby & The Refugees—will take the stage for an Idahoan good time.
