Eilen Jewell performs during filming of Idaho the Movie 2

After nearly a decade in the Northeast, musician Eilen Jewell recently returned to her home state of Idaho.  “It struck me as a really funny thing that I had to travel all around the world in order to have the perspective and realize that I started out in the place where I was supposed to be,” says Jewell.   The Boise born singer-songwriter appears and performs in the soon to be released film, Idaho the Movie 2.”  The story opens with Jewell performing the song “Worried Mind” from her new album, “Sundown Over Ghost Town.”

Worried Mind is a love song to Idaho.  It’s home and it’s family… and yeah, it’s my inspiration,” says Jewell.   Jewell’s music combines with stunning new Ultra High Definition aerial photography in an emotional tribute to her home state.

The film, “Idaho the Movie 2” premieres Tuesday, November 15th at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise.   The one night only showing is presented by The Nature Conservancy.   Tickets are FREE but online registration is required.   Jewell has generously donated two complete sets of her music to the Idaho the Movie 2 raffle.   A $5.00 ticket buys your chance to take home a signed set of all of Jewell’s CDs.   Many other prizes will be raffled off that night as well and all proceeds will go toward conservation efforts in Idaho.

And if you can’t make the Egyptian Premiere, don’t worry.   Idaho the Movie 2 will broadcast on KTVB/KTFT in Boise and Twin Falls on November 25th, the Friday after Thanksgiving at 7pm.   Airdates across the NW will follow.  Visit for more information.
