May 1 2018

Snowbasin, UT – April 25, 2018 Snowbasin Resort releases an elevated line-up of nationally and regionally touring artists and bands that will fill the mountain air with music every Sunday afternoon this summer for the sixth season of their Blues, Brews & BBQ Free Summer Concert Series. Blues, Brews & BBQ is quickly becoming the most coveted free concert series in all of Utah and this year’s line-up will not disappoint. The free, live music rocks Earl’s Lodge patio and lawn every Sunday 12:30pm – 5:30pm from June 10 – September 30. Three bands will perform each week, playing everything from blues to funk and Americana to rock and roll, offering a family-friendly environment for everyone to enjoy. 

The 2018 Blues, Brews & BBQ concert series will kick off with Yarn on June 10 and the fun will continue all summer long with crowd favorites and powerhouse bands like Los Lobos, Leftover Salmon, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, The Ballroom Thieves, and Andy Frasco. “I think this year’s lineup is a good mix of some fresh faces and our crowd favorites. We always like to have a great mix of genres and styles and this year you can see that up and down the lineup even each individual show may have two or three different styles. It’s going to be a lot of fun and there is definitely something for everyone throughout the season,” says Jason Ostler, Dining and Entertainment Manager.
