Pickin' in the Pines was outstanding this year. We had a great time seeing us all jammin' together in the field in Elbert, CO. We have a few snapshots to share with you. Make plans to attend next year's event.
How many of us are going to Winfield?? Hope to see some of you there Sept. 14-18, 2016.
The Colorado Mountain WineFest happens in Palisade on Sept. 15-18. There will be live music, a little grape stomping and other fun activities.
The Fruita Fall Festival happens Sept 23-25, 2016.:There will be music by Matt Fliner, Stray Grass, Still House String Band and Blue Canyon Boys.
Planet Bluegrass begins its Wildflower Concert Series on Saturday, Sept. 17 with its 9th annual Mabon Concert featuring Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann from Yonder Mountain String Band.
On September 30 and October 1, Planet Bluegrass will offer a once in a lifetime event: Neil Young and Promise of the Real in Telluride.
The grand daddy of all festivals--World of Bluegrass happens at the end of this month in North Carolina. Will you be there? We wish all of our Colorado contingent a great experience, a lot of exposure, and lots of good music.
Just a few housekeeping items. If you want to place a print ad in our monthly Pow'r Pickin' magazine, delivered monthly to CBMS members, the deadline is the first of the month PRIOR to the month of publication. So, if you want to be in December's Pow'r Pickin' we need your ad on November 1. Remember, Doris Gray is now handling this: firstname.lastname@example.org
CBMS has a widget on its website that spools all the bands on call and produces a great list of who is playing where. It's nice to have the hard copy that appears monthly in the newsletter, but if you want something right now and can't find your printed version, please go here: http://www.coloradobluegrass.org/show-schedule.html
It tells you who is playing and where they are playing. You can sort the information geographically, too. Pretty cool. Check it out.
Details are rolling in for our upcoming Lafayette Bluegrass Series. Stay tuned for more details.
Happy Picking and Listening and Grinning.
Your CBMS all-volunteer Board of Directors
