Sounds of the Summer: This Season’s Best Outdoor Music

Contrary to popular belief, there is in fact a cure for the summertime blues. And in some cases, a different type of blues (or bluegrass, or jazz, or folk) will do just the trick. Outdoor music season is upon us, with a myriad of concerts taking place from coast to coast. Here, a shortlist of the best this summer has to offer: Thanks to the Newport Folk Festival and the Newport Jazz Festival occurring over back-to-back weekends this July, we’ve got two solid reasons to pack our bags for the coast. This year’s Folk Festival will host the likes of Ray LaMontagne and Father John Misty, and for some comic relief, New Zealand’s Flight of the Conchords (known for their eponymous, short-lived HBO series). A week later, the Jazz Festival c...

Contrary to popular belief, there is in fact a cure for the summertime blues. And in some cases, a different type of blues (or bluegrass, or jazz, or folk) will do just the trick. Outdoor music season is upon us, with a myriad of concerts taking place from coast to coast. Here, a shortlist of the best this summer has to offer: Thanks to the Newport Folk Festival and the Newport Jazz Festival occurring over back-to-back weekends this July, we’ve got two solid reasons to pack our bags for the coast. This year’s Folk Festival will host the likes of Ray LaMontagne and Father John Misty, and for some comic relief, New Zealand’s Flight of the Conchords (known for their eponymous, short-lived HBO series). A week later, the Jazz Festival celebrates the 75th birthday of Chick Corea with two nights of performances by the jazz pianist, plus sounds from Norah Jones, Kamasi Washington, and Gregory Porter over the weekend. Newport Folk Festival: July 22nd – 24th, newportfolk.org; Newport Jazz Festival: July 29th – 31st, newportjazzfest.org Hit the Windy City to celebrate the 25th year of Lollapalooza. Whether it’s commanding sounds from LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, and Disclosure; strong female vocals from Haim, Ellie Goulding, and Grimes; or all-out sonic chaos from Major Lazer, Die Antwoord, and Bloc Party, there’s something for a variety of musical tastes. In case you need a break from the tunes, the festival’s convenient Grant Park location means a quick respite is a short walk away. July 28th – 31st, lollapalooza.com Taking place the first weekend of the month, San Francisco’s Outside Lands brings sounds from Lionel Richie, Beach House, and Sufjan Stevens, among many others, to the city by the bay. While August may be the height of summer for most of the country, San Francisco has conveniently opted out thanks to their typically cooler temps—making it a perfect time to visit. August 5th – 7th, sfoutsidelands.com To quote the coonskin-wearing Davy Crockett, “you may all go to Hell, and I will go to Texas.” It’s quite a suggestion, but we’ll go with the latter—and close out the summer with Austin City Limits. The two-weekend festival spans a number of musical genres, catering to all kinds of music fans. A few added bonuses: Texas legend Willie Nelson takes the stage during the second weekend, and you’ll be dreaming about Austin’s legendary Tex-Mex until tickets go on sale for next year. September 30th – October 2nd; October 7th – 9th, aclfestival.com

Ghurka Features

  • Our Leather

    Ghurka leather is never pretreated to remove any flaws, we must begin by using the most naturally flawless hides available. While we utilize a variety of leather types based on which is best suited to a particular product, the majority of our goods are made from French calfskin. Calfskin has a finer grain and softer feel than traditional cowhide as the younger age of the animal brings less exposure to the harsh elements, the main cause of imperfection. French calfskin in particular is considered the finest in the world due to the fact that farms in France do not use barbed wire, one of the leading causes of mars and scratches. As no two skins are completely alike, each and every handcrafted leather Ghurka product will have an individual character that adds to its unique patina as it ages.

  • The Stitching

    We use an extra-thick spun nylon that should never snap or fray, and all of our craftsmen ensure that each and every piece is stitched to our exacting standards. A careful review of any two parts of a Ghurka leather luggage piece will reveal exactly the same number of stitches per inch, a requirement for anything that leaves our workshop. The placement of these stitches is equally exact, precisely laid out to the millimeter to ensure that every bit of leather is assembled to last a lifetime.

  • The Brass

    Brass is the only metal we've found that offers the strength, durability, and reliability that have become our hallmark. Every single piece of our hardware - from zippers, buckles, and hooks to the smallest of snaps and rivets are made solely from this rugged and beautiful material. A great deal of time and expense has been invested in perfecting our brass zippers. Every single tooth is individually machined and polished to ensure flawless operation after years of continuous use. And since all of our leather briefcase and leather travel bag hardware is solid brass and never plated, it too will develop a unique character and patina as it ages alongside our famous leather.

  • The Process

    Since our founding, Ghurka has set out to manufacture the highest handcrafted leather goods available in the U.S. This has always begun with using only the finest hides in the world. While there are endless varieties of leather available, only a handful pass the rigorous selection process required to bear the Ghurka medallion. Likewise, our signature solid brass hardware and trademark stitching process ensure that our bags deliver an unparalleled owner experience and lifetime of use.
