About Sundown Grand Ol' Country Festival

In the heart of summer, we're launching a music festival -- different than the rest, ‘cause it's free and lasts four days!

Grammy-nominated Brandy Clark is the headliner on Saturday, July 22! Brandy's set will highlight the variety of music at this festival; Country, bluegrass, Americana...the performers we've lined up will be heard indoors and out on multiple stages, with their own styles and talent to make each day a memorable one.

Whether it's the sweet Americana of Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters on Saturday or the groovin' tunes of Jawbone Flats on Friday, you'll find live music across the grounds; at Pat's Corner, our special main stage out on the front lawn, and at the Garage Door, so feel free to wander with a beverage and discover a new favorite.

Event Schedule

Brothers and Sister

8:30 p.m. 'til 10 p.m.

Main Stage

Brothers and Sister

No college bar cover band-come-lately, Brothers and Sister have studied the music of the Allman Brothers Band intensely, finding ways to capture the sound, style and feel of the original "At Fillmore East" concert while allowing for their own individual spirit and joy to shine through. They perform the music with haunting detail, to create an incendiary and heart-felt evening that would gratify even the Allmans themselves.

Leading the dual-charge of guitars are beloved axe-slingers Lewi Longmire (AgesandAges, Denver, Michael Hurley, Fernando) and Anita Lee Elliott (Viva Voce, Blue Giant, Calico Rose). The demanding rhythm section features Matt Cadenelli (Don of Division, Fernando), Ryan Spellman (Quiet Life, Denver), and bassist Tim Huggins (James Low Western Front, Moody Little Sister). Keyboardist extraordinaire Steve Kerin (Too Loose Cajun and Zydeco Band, Atomic Gumbo) completes the original sextet. As a bonus, harmonica ace David Lipkind (Woodbrain, I Can Lick Any SOB in the House) is brought in help fill in the guest harp from the Fillmore concert.

The Old Yellers

7 p.m. 'til 10 p.m.

Garage Door

The Old Yellers

The Old Yellers began in early 2001 when founding members Michael Berly and Matty V Hartless came together with the goal to write great songs built around vocal harmonies and well crafted stories. The idea was to write songs with a message that could be felt and understood by nearly anyone. They were soon joined by friends Diego Joyeux and Tim Connell and this core group has been playing together in one form or another ever since.

In the years that followed, albums were made, tours were undertaken, fun was had and many great musicians would take their turn coming in and adding to the overall magic. It is difficult to label them any one thing, because at times they have seemed more Rock and Roll, or Alt-Country, or Americana, or Folk Rock, but there is and always has been, a consistency, a uniqueness, something special, that has woven itself throughout the path they have traveled. Whether you call them The Old Yellers or The Yellers, they are are at heart, an American band, writing and performing their own original music, that above all, strives to evolve the consciousness of the global community and generate a real revolution of spirit.

The Bands powerhouse core has been blessed to surround themselves with a cast of stellar musicians who have, for nearly 15 years, formed the family band that is The Old Yellers. The band defies the limits of categorization into a single genre and can take a crowd on a seamless journey from raucous country honky tonk, to tender heartfelt ballads, past a potential Irish jig and back to the cornerstone of rock and roll all in the span of just a few songs. Yeller music is an eclectic blend of rollicking good time songs that win crowds over again and again.

Jawbone Flats

7:30 p.m. 'til 8:20 p.m.

Pat's Stage

Jawbone Flats

The influences are vast, but it all comes back to Portland when they're asked to describe their sound. However, Jawbone Flats got their name from a tucked away spot in a protected wilderness area East of Salem. Jawbone Flats is an old abandoned mining town surrounded by some of the most lush old growth forest you'll find in the state. In one sense, it's as Oregon as it gets.

The band that takes its name from the hidden treasure also fits a style that can make you appreciate the outdoors, good friends and a cold beer. The members of the five-piece has been playing with each other and in a grab bag of local sounds and bands since 2000.

Bart Budwig

5 p.m. 'til 6:20 p.m.

Pat's Stage

Bart Budwig

Bart Budwig grew up on the Idaho Palouse, with a pawn shop trumpet and a heart as big as a skyscraper - if skyscrapers knew how to be humble. Bart learned melody from classic jazz charts and found that fault-lines in big hearts create drifting continents, cut new oceans and forge new mountains. Eventually, everyone close to him disappeared, whether to death or Texas, and it was from Texas that he got a letter from Waylon Jennings inviting him to pick up a guitar and a pen.

Budwig doesn't write the big songs. He writes songs about places between the hills, in the draws and hidden canyons where truth is a little more in focus, stories take their time being told, heartbreak is a place of deep reflection, and melodies don't have to wear rhinestone suits or drive shiny, new cars to be beautiful.

In 2016, Bart Budwig played over 150 out-of-town shows and has shared the stage with Blind Pilot, Joseph, Alan Stone, Joe Pug, Justin Townes Earle, Damien Jurado, Mason Jennings and many more. He will be releasing his 5th full-length album Paint by Numbers Jesus on April 1st, 2017, a swamp-country concept record pulling from grooves of Motown and the American deep south in the 60s and 70s.
