Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes is headlining the Targhee Music Festival in July. Tickets go on sale Friday.

ALTA, Wyo. — Alabama Shakes is headlining the ninth annual Targhee Music Festival July 19-21.

The fast-rising soul-rock group came up empty-handed at the Grammy Awards ceremony last month when they failed to win in the three categories they were nominated in. But their singer Brittany Howard's powerhouse tribute to Levon Helm stole the show.

Other confirmed music acts for the festival include Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers, Los Lobos, John Hiatt and the Combo, JJ Grey and Mofro, Wood Brothers, Courtyard Hounds, Son Volt, Dave Alvin, Anders Osborne, Sister Sparrow, Holly Williams, and Bozeman band the Hooligans. Additional acts will be announced in upcoming months.

Also, the 26th annual Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival is scheduled for Aug. 9-11. Early three-day and six-day Summer of Music Festival tickets and passes will be available and in limited quantities beginning March 8.
