Pend Oreille River Band (pronounced pond-da-ray) takes their name from the Pend Oreille River, which flows west through the Idaho panhandle and then north up into Canada before it enters the mighty Columbia River. Like the river flowing gently through glacially carved valleys this veteran group of bluegrass musicians play in the traditional format of bluegrass, making songs they write seem timeless. Their high lonesome singing along with tasteful instrumentals has quickly made this group a regional favorite. As unforgettable as the American bald eagle as it perches atop the ponderosa pines, the Pend Oreille River Band reference their musical influences from the pristine rivers, lakes and valleys of North Idaho when creating great unforgettable Bluegrass music.
