Idyltime

Music

Boise, ID

Idyltime, a band originally playing bluegrass out of southern Oregon, re-formed in 2011 when Beth and Tate Mason moved to Boise, Idaho. There they joined up with Dave Daley and Ava Honey who were hosting a weekly old-time jam at Pengilly’s Saloon. Dave and Ava continue to be extremely active in developing the acoustic roots music and square dance scene in Boise. With over 40 years of fiddling, Dave brings a lifetime of musical experience to the original songwriting of the Idyltime. Beth and Ava sing together in such a way it reminds listeners of the Carter Family or Hazel and Alice. They also take turns playing guitar and upright bass. Tate delivers sweet licks on his banjo and dobro. Fiddle, banjo, dobro, guitar, upright bass. Four voices, eight hands, forty fingers. Let’s pick
