Happy Treefort! In only its fifth year, Treefort Music Fest has taken the City of Boise, and in fact the entire Northwest, by storm. Featuring over 400 local, national and international musical artists, plus other "forts" -- like Yogafort, Alefort, Hackfort, Kidfort, Storyfort, and Filmfort-- Treefort Music Fest has become, as Boise Weekly put it, "Boise's preeminent artistic, cultural and musical happening." Our City Club audience will hear from, and ask questions of:
  • Treefort founder Lori Shandro Outen
  • musician, educator and Boise Rock School co-founder Ryan Peck
  • past Potentate of the El Korah Shrine, Ron Lester. 
They will discuss how Treefort has changed Boise's music and cultural scene, and quickly become part of Boise's "brand".
