Great Live Music in Eastern Oregon Every Thursday Evening During Summer!

Wallowa Valley Music AllianceLooking for a different start to your Oregon vacation?  How about some great live music in Northestern Oregon every Thursday evening during summer? 

During June, July and August, the Wallowa Valley Music Alliance presents a live music courthouse concert.  This isn't just any old concert series--musicians come in from all around the Pacific Northwest and beyond to this far-away corner of Oregon.  Performances range from early jazz and swing to alt-country-rock to traditional folk to award-winning contemporary songwriters performing their own music.

Who:  Every week is a different group.  You can view the most up-to-date listing on the Music Alliance's website.   Here are the bands coming for the rest of June 2009:

June 18th:  Simon Tucker Group (gut-wrenching original blues)
June 25th:  Jessie Morgan (Wallowa County's own country diva)

Where:  At the gazebo on the Wallowa County Courthouse grounds in Enterprise, Oregon (only 10 minutes from Joseph Oregon and 20 minutes from Wallowa Lake).

When:  Every Thursday evening, June through August, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.  The nearby Farmers Market starts at 4:00 p.m.

Cost:  FREE (although donations are graciously accepted and can be counted as tax-deductible contributions to the Wallowa Valley Music Alliance).

Wallowa Valley Music Alliance, City of Enterprise, Wallowa County Board of Commissioners, Oregon Arts Commission.

What to do: 
  • Reserve your room at one of four Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild members in Wallowa County so you'll have somewhere to sleep that evening once the concert's over.
  • Bring your lawn chair (and maybe a blanket--it does cool down during the evening around here).  
  • Start your romantic getaway Oregon style with an intimate, free, open-air concert surrounded by the beautiful Wallowa Mountains!
