Somewhere up in the woodsy hills near Elkader, there’s a little tin-roof cabin where those in the know gather for live outdoor concerts. The music serenades the humans, their dogs, the birds in the trees, the fireflies and anything else with ears to enjoy it.

The exact location of the Cabin Concerts is a secret – only ticketholders receive the map – but anyone can check out the schedule online. Saturday’s concert with William Elliott Whitmore is sold out, but there are plenty of others in the weeks ahead. On the July 14-15 weekend, for example, folks can stay up late on Friday for the Cosmobilly Band, among others, then toast some s’mores and camp overnight before the next day’s lineup with John Till, Slapdash Bluegrass and others.

To get a feel for the whole experience, in all its free-wheeling glory, check out the video from last season. The word “idyllic” comes to mind.
