Why I’d like to attend the 2010 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival…
Are you kidding me??? Planet Bluegrass ROCKS!!!!
I just got back from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival for the first time and WOW! is all I can say. What fun!!! This was my first vacation in over 8 years since before my sons were born.
Alison Krauss and Union Station was worth all the money, time, and effort spent!!!!!!!
It was so nice to meet some of the artists, interview them and get pictures with them (Sarah Jarosz, Dave Rawlings Machine, Keller and the Keels, and the Del McCoury Band) The setting was beautiful. The event staff were so welcoming and helpful. It was so nice to have folks tell me what was compostable, recyclable vs. what was just plain trash. Sound was incredible – no matter where you went it was easy to hear (even in the port-a-potties!) We met folks from far away states and folks who were practically our next door neighbors. Next year we’ll come for the entire time and bring our family with us. Kid-friendly is a huge plus!!
I am so bummed that we cannot make Rockygrass but so much want to go to the Folk Festival, especially since this will be the 20th anniversary. Sadly the end of Summer always has to come but what a great way to wind down, with some great music in a great state. I haven’t ever been to the Lyons location but I am sure this will become a tradition for my boys and I. As a 44-year-old single mom just heading back to college in the fall, I have come to know and love Bluegrass and want to share the wealth with my children. My grass is Blue!
Thanks for the opportunity to speak and I cannot wait to see you in August!!!!!!!!!!
Peace, Love, and Bluegrass – Ramona
