JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Jackson Hole Hootenanny regulars Jenny Landgraf and Sally McCullough had a vision five years ago to organize a concert that not only featured women performers, but women who might not otherwise have a stage to perform on. They also donate any proceeds from the Teton Serenade to the Targhee Music Foundation towards a Targhee Music Camp scholarship. The intimate Dornan’s show has sold out every year, though tickets are currently still available for this Saturday.
This year’s lineup includes a band that formed after last year’s event—The Balsamroots. Based in Teton Valley, the band is comprised of Molly Grove, Molly Houkom, Mary Neil, Rose Hendricks, Becky Hendricks, and Sage Hibberd. Returning performers also include Linda Lina Marquis, Tasha Ghozali, Talli Manning, Jennifer Ford, and organizers Landgraf and McCullough. Hilary Camino and Karee Miller Jaeger are new additions for this year.
“We’re always looking for women in the area to bring in to this event,” Landgraf said.
5th Annual Teton Serenade, 8 p.m. Saturday at Dornan’s in Moose. Tickets are $15, available at TLS – The Liquor Store and Dornan’s. Food service available until 7 p.m.
