A large number of acoustic musicians will be hosting Idiotjam on September 8, a concert at the Farmer’s Mercantile in Garrison for an evening of music, food and fun.

This year musicians will be coming from all corners of the United States, including Washington, New Hampshire, Mississippi and Vancouver in British Columbia Canada.  The concert begins at 7:00 and will have an intermission with refreshments provided by the Garrison library.

This is the 14th year this event will be held in Benton County.   The musicians, who keep in tough during the year through an online forum, always have the opportunity to have this gathering anywhere, but they always opt for here.

Ask any of them why, and the answer is that they love Iowa and Iowans.  They will tell you how pretty it is here, how this is a relaxing place to come and most importantly, they will remark on how warm and friendly we Iowans are.

If you would like to prove them correct, come to Garrison on September 8th at 7:00 p.m. and enjoy an evening of some great acoustic music.
