2015 Big Sky Rhythm And Blues Festival – There is plenty of on-site camping and RV space as well as nearby lodging.  Noxon, Montana is about 50 miles east of Sand Point, Idaho.  This festival has become a favorite annual destination for families and veteran festival seekers alike.  The festival will have food vendors and the Big Sky Brewery is providing refreshments.  Visitors to this beautiful area can participate in all sorts of outdoor activities including swimming, boating, hiking and more.

 Polly and her band will be playing again during the festival as well as a stellar lineup of performers including The Randy Oxford Band (just back from their East Coast Tour), Rafael Tranquilino Band (named by the Washington Blues Society as Best New Band for 2015), Robin Barrett & Coyote Kings, Hank Shreve Band, Nick Vigarino, The Kenny James Miller Band, The Austin Young Band (from Denver, Colorado), and Ayron Jones & the Way.  Food is available and an early trip will be available for those that want to eat.  It is a great place to bring the family with a laid back, casual atmosphere.  This beautiful setting is a prime spot to hold an outdoor music festival.  A free shuttle will be provided to and from the pre-party for campers nestled on the Clark Fork River at the Vista Power recreation in the mountains of western Montana.
