2018 was filled with great music on Montana Public Radio. Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen, Iron and Wine, Tim Fain, Honey Honey, The Sapphire Trio, and more joined us in the studio. Dozens of others appeared as guests on Musician's Spotlight, and we spent a week celebrating the music of Leonard Bernstein. We also broadcast some exciting shows from the Montana Folk Festival, the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival, and from right here at the University of Montana.

Here are our five favorite live music moments to help you send-off 2018.
