We hope you are enjoying this fabulous Colorado summer. It's been a good one. We have already enjoyed Pueblo, Pagosa, Idaho Springs, Westcliffe, and a variety of other Colorado festivals.
KGNU will host the Charles Sawtelle Memorial Mountain Jam Sunday, July 23 at Gold Hill Inn. Laurie Lewis, plus Masontown and Thunder and Rain will bring the house down. Come on down and join the festivities.
Avogadro's Number will host its annual AvoGrass, coming up this week.
Of course, RockyGrass follows, but if you don't yet have tickets you're probably not going to get there. Every once in a while the Denver Pickers Facebook page will have posts about tickets and camping passes that won't be able to be used, so check there if you're desperate to go. Here's a link to some fabulous photos from President Kevin Slick's collection:
Rhythms of the Rio comes up the first weekend in August.
