Welcome to our list, Matthew, Doug and John. Thanks a lot for your intros.
Jo, to answer your question about Pocatello pickers, I think there's an
Idaho Bluegrass Association, but I don't have the website address handy. You
can also hear live bluegrass occasionally at Dudley's, and you can catch
"Bluegrass Breakdown" on the radio by tuning in KISU. To find others to jam
with, you might ask around at the local music stores, esp. those that handle
a lot of acoustic instruments.
Here's what's coming up on the live music calendar for the week ahead. Seems
kinda quiet this week. Is everyone working on taxes? or practicing? Are all
the regular weekly gigs below still happening?

2014 NE 42nd, Portland - 7 - 10pm
