Despite modest attendance in its inaugural year, The Huckleberry Jam will return this summer at Tamarack Resort in Donnelly.

If organizers felt like they needed to scale back, it isn’t showing in the talent booked for year two of the festival, which will be Aug. 11-13.

Aug. 11: Jeff Crosby & The Refugees (campground stage)

Aug. 12: Beats Antique (night show), Brandi Carlile (headliner), Monophonics, Jeff Crosby & The Refugees.

Aug. 13: Michael Franti & Spearhead, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Lake Street Dive, Moon Hooch, Shook Twins.

I had a total blast at last year’s Huckleberry Jam. It’s the kind of intimate, laid-back mountain festival that just screams “Idaho!” We don’t have enough of those.

The inaugural Huckleberry Jam last year at Tamarack Resort near Donnelly, Idaho, featured music acts such as Ben Harper and Brett Dennen. This year's event is Aug. 11-13.
