Festival close-out message.

Follow that with Bart Budwig and Ben Walden for an intimate set LIVE from the festival stage at HQ in La Grande, Oregon beamed in close-up to your home entertainment center. In mid-April 2020 the "L" fell off of the OK Theatre marquee. Inspired, Bart Budwig and Ben Walden put together a folky batch of covers and original tunes including some of our favorite songwriters like John Prine, Merle Haggard, and Woody Guthrie. Check out the album.

"Bart Budwig is a son of Idaho, a cosmic country crooner, a rousing trumpet player, and cryin’-style soul singer. His music is made up of seemingly incongruous parts; thrum and strum country rhythms, jazz guitar melodies, R&B vocals." - Glide Magazine

It’s his ability to combine tragedy and comedy in his humanist hallelujahs that makes Budwig a gravitational force and industry chimera. The studio general, the clown prince, the sensitive songwriter with a rugged voice.
