This is a busy, busy time of the year. We hope you will continue to get out and listen to some great live music, or participate in one of the live music jams in and around Colorado. Check out our list of jams here.
This Saturday, December 5, is our third concert in the Lafayette Bluegrass Series. You'll enjoy the Young Pickers-our group of up-and-coming young musicians. That would be a great show in and of itself, but wait! There's more: Greg Blake, plus Blaine Sprouse (Peter Rowan Band), Jeff Scroggins, Annie Savage, and Nick Dumas (Seldom Scene) will absolutely rock the house at the Colorado Center for Musical Arts, 200 Baseline Rd., Lafayette.You don't want to miss this special concert.
CBMS is excited to announce the upcoming and ever-popular Bluegrass at the AUDI series. We have a great lineup: January 9, Finnders and Youngberg, plus Blue Canyon Boys; Feb. 6, Ron Thomason and Heidi Clare; and March 12, Railsplitters, and Acoustic Mining Company. Buy your tickets here.
Look for other upcoming events here and we look forward to seeing you. Remember to plan ahead for both Winter Wondergrass and the Mid Winter Bluegrass Festival, both coming up in February. If you have a hankering for an outdoor music festival, head on over to Blythe, CA for the Blythe Bluegrass Festival
January 15-17. Colorado's own Blue Canyon Boys will be there, along with the Gibson Bros., Band of Ruhks and many others.
And speaking of Mid Winter Bluegrass Festival, we want to let you know that we are planning to have a first-ever CBMS round up and awards ceremony on Sunday, February 14. Hosted by emcee Pete Wernick and featuring Molly Tuttle in a set following the ceremony. We will spend time celebrating our Hall of Honor recipients and our special volunteers who go the distance--again and again. We will also entertain the socks off of you with several Colorado Jam Grassers as well as band members from the Showcase. Please join us on Sunday, February 14 as we close out the Mid Winter Bluegrass Festival. We'll have more details soon.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you from your volunteer board at Colorado Bluegrass Music Society.
