Idaho is a bastion for local musicians,

who have access to venues large and small to perform and take in world class music. Each year, the University of Idaho hosts musicians from across the globe during the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival, as does Boise State with the Gene Harris Jazz Festival. The Treefort Music Fest and Boise Music Festival draw crowds with popular local acts and world-reknowned headliners from a range of genres, including fock, indie-rock, country and pop.
