Return of the Peacock is a music video/documentary featuring the music and musicians of the Northwest String Summit. The premier JamGrass/Bluegrass/Americana festival in the Pacific Northwest, the NWSS draws in fans from around the world for an extended weekend of camaraderie, celebration and, of course, lots and lots of the music we love.
Now in its 14th year, the NWSS is held annually at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon and hosted by JamGrass pioneers Yonder Mountain String Band. Return focuses on footage captured at the 2015 event, jumping right in with “Around You” by Yonder Mountain, which happened to open their first set of the festival.
Unlike the first documentary on the Northwest String Summit, Turn Left at the Peacock, which took a look behind the scenes at what goes into putting on a festival like this, Return is all about the music. Between songs you’ll hear about what inspires the musicians and why they love what they do, but the next thing you know it’s back to the stage for more music.
Besides Yonder, JamGrass heavy-hitters and String Summit regulars Greensky Blugrass are featured along with other fan favorites like the Infamous Stringdusters, Elephant Revival, Keller Williams, The Travelin’ McCourys and local favorite, Portland based Fruiton, a rising star in the scene.
Return of the Peacock is a great way to relive memories from String Summits past, learn a little more about what makes some of your favorite musicians tick or introduce this phenomenal music to a friend who might not yet “get it”.
