The Palisade Bluegrass and Roots Festival in Colorado this weekend was awesome. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, we felt right at home. Had a great time hanging with the diverse group of performers too. Since we were the only bluegrass band performing on Saturday, we really gave them a show! Festival goers were treated to a slice of bluegrass pie that had all the flavors of our music! If they weren’t bluegrass followers before the concert, they are now! We had ‘em dancing in the grass.
The views were spectacular with mountains and vineyards all around. And our overnight stay at the Wine Country Inn was luxurious. We felt like royalty! If you’re ever out that way, be sure to stop in and set a spell in one of the rockers on their wraparound front porch. If it hadn’t been so late, I would have done some jammin’!
After a great night’s sleep, we headed on up to Aspen for the Aspen Bluegrass Sundays Concert on top of Snowmass at an elevation of about 11,000 feet. The gondola ride up the mountain was a hoot as we crammed in long legs and instruments! Once we got to the top we were treated to the gorgeous views of Castle Peak and Hayden Peak that provided a backdrop for the venue. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! Wish we could have stayed longer, but had to rush back as we’ll be playing at the Prescott Bluegrass Festival this coming weekend.
