Join musician Gary Eller on a romp through Idaho's early music, and be transported by his amazing banjo tunes to a time of mining and rough-housing.
Gary Eller has played American roots music since he grew up in rural West Virginia. Following a thirty year career as a nuclear scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, he retired to Nampa and immediately became deeply involved in Idaho history and music. With funding from the Idaho Humanities Council in 2007 and 2008, he compiled almost 200 historically rooted songs of our region and performs them at many events throughout Idaho. Eller works closely with regional museums and universities to collect, archive and bring to life through performance and interpretation the wonderful windows into Idaho’s heritage that these songs present.
