What do a hula-hoop, a river raft and a pirate costume have in common? It's Colorado's own YarmonyGrass Festival, of course. The two-night summer camp out known best for its scenic location on the Colorado River basin and its down-home grassroots appeal has announced the 2011 line up, and this year there is a little something for everyone including a little "Crisco" (country-disco for the uninformed), electro, Americana and even soul-lifting roots rock.
The sixth annual YarmonyGrass Festival will again include some of the finest string musicians in the country including the legendary Peter Rowan, the Travelin' McCoury's with Republic of Strings guitarist Scott Law, Emmit-Nershi Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Grant Farm w/ Keith Moseley, The Contribution, Nershi-Law Santa Cruz Guitar Duo along with a first time ever performance by "The Trancident" featuring The String Cheese Incident's Jason Hann, Michael Travis, Kyle Hollingsworth, and Michael Kang - culminating into a Yarmony Joint Set featuring many of the weekends performers on one single stage.
Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, March 29th and include camping at the Rancho Rio River resort along with a boat-load of daytime activities including the 2nd Annual Yarmony Kickball Tourney, music workshops, food vendors, water activities at Dinosaur Eddy, geologic and historic hikes, and even rafting on the famed Colorado River (booked and sold separately).The location and setting of a festival are what make music events memorable and YarmonyGrass has it all.
