      Various Times Various Locations

      Meandering Musicians Perform

      Revisit the musical outburst in Ketchum that occurred centuries ago when these same Lewis Ore Wagons, filled to the brim with heavy lead and silver ore, pulled for weeks by mule teams, struggled into town after completing their treacherous, sometimes deadly trip over the steep mountain trails. Their payload supported the town, creating paydays for miners, teamsters, farriers, and jobs at the train station, the local smelter and especially in the restaurants and saloons that thrived in town.

      This weekend, as in those times, local musicians and their stringed instruments are meandering through the streets and venues in town with music to perpetuate that successful Ore Wagon tradition, “when the Wagons are rolling, the fiddlers are strolling”.
