Last night was my third time seeing Greensky Bluegrass in the past 13 months, although I think it was their first appearance, ever, in Southern Oregon. Oddly, it was the first time I’ve seen them without Holly Bowling.

Willow Lake, Oregon (August 2023)

Willow Lake is just an hour from Ashland, not much farther than Lake of the Woods (which I’ve been to dozens of times over the years). And yet, I’d never heard of it until last week. I bounced the name off of a few friends who have also been in Ashland for over 20 years, and they hadn’t hear of it either. Did I just “out” a somewhat secret lake?

Should you find yourself wanting to visit this place, don’t put “Willow Lake” into Google Maps or you may get sent down the wrong road. Instead, use “Willow Lake County Park”.

In the past 15+ years I’ve seen Floater and Zepparella a great many times–well over 20 times combined. However, I haven’t been to a Floater or Zepparella concert since 2019. I was planning on going to Eugene on this evening anyway–to see The Australian Pink Floyd Show at the Hult Center. But when a Floater, Zepparella, and Hillstomp show emerged on the same evening, I changed those plans.

The evening was beautiful. Temps were in the 80s (but shady) at the start and ended in the 70s. The sunset was lovely, and the music was fantastic.

More photos coming soon.
