Summer activities have officially started in the Bitterroot Valley. And there's no better proof than the start of the free Tuesday noon hour musical performances in Hamilton called "The Jean Matthews Tuesday at 12 Summer Concert Series." Each year, the hour-long shows bring the best in local and regional musicians to an appreciative crowd at the Ravalli County Museum lawn.

This year, the season starts June 12.

  • June 12 - Tin Cup
  • June 19 - John Floridis
  • June 26 - Russ and Sam Nassett


  • July 3 - Naomi Siegel (trombone virtuoso)
  • July 10 - Accousticals
  • July 17 - Susan Gibson
  • July 24 - Top House
  • July 31 - Canta Brasil


  • August 7 - Jenn Adams and Cove Jasmin
  • August 14 - Tom Catmull
  • August 21 - Joan Zen (with a jazz set)

The series is free to the public because of the generous donations from Hamilton businesses and individuals. So, take advantage of it, grab a lunch and a lawn chair and come on over Tuesday during the noon hour - every week this summer! Be a regular visitor to the Facebook page, too.
