Dewey, Pickette, and Howe is a three piece bluegrass band, based in the Ketchum / Sun Valley area, that has quickly established itself as one of the top bands in Southern Idaho. “Great song list,” “sharp arrangements,” “awesome harmony,” are just a few comments from fans at Dewey, Pickette, and Howe performances. Among those shows are regular performances at the Sun Valley Resort for ski club parties, corporate conventions, and weddings.
