America's Music Festivals: The Grand Teton Festival

Jul 16, 2012

Airs, Monday July 16 at 11:00 a.m. The city of Jackson Hole, Wyoming sits surrounded by the natural wonder of some of the world’s most spectacular snowcapped mountains, the Grand Tetons. The spirit of the American West is alive here, and the town serves as a gateway to two of the most beloved national parks – Yellowstone and Grand Teton. With an overwhelming abundance of natural beauty, it is no wonder that musicians have claimed this place as their own with the Grand Teton Music Festival. The festival celebrates its fiftieth year in 2011 with eight weeks of concerts.
