Idaho Sawtooth Bluegrass Association holds an annual Spring Super Jam in late May/early June each year in Kamiah.

KAMIAH – Family style entertainment and plenty of jamming will be part of the Idaho Sawtooth Bluegrass Association’s 14th Annual Spring Super Jam May 31-June 2, at Lewis-Clark Resort in Kamiah.

Saturday starts with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. and offers a day full of jam sessions and free concerts for the public.
