Sunday morning hit me like a ton of bricks.  I'd been out for the first day of Mile High, leaving sometime around 1:30 am for the drive home, and only slept about 6 hours before I was out of bed again.  In some ways, being able to sleep at home was a bonus.  I got to shower, for...

The early Saturday morning sun heralded a very warm day to come, but the sky was clear and looked like it would be a beautiful day. After uploading the photos I took from the day before onto my computer, I sat at my campsite and typed in Day Three's festival memories. I hauled my computer over to...

It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for a body! Today's report about Friday at the fantastic 10KLF will be devoid of whinning! Though music started yesterday at noon with Blue Martian Tribe and Bill Smith at the Saloon stage, I was writing my report and wasn't able to start my music...

Last weekend I had the good fortune of attending the Mile High Music Festival in Denver, or more appropriately Commerce City, Colorado.  This year was the festival's inaugural year, and as far as I could tell, the affair went off without a hitch.  And I love festivals.  There is...

As we drove into this year's 10KLF at about 1:30 in the afternoon, I thought we'd have to wait to get into our campground. We'd even gotten some subs to tide us over while we waited. Instead, we were the first car at the gate at that moment in time, no line, and not many people in the field at the...

At the All Good Music Festival held this past weekend in Masontown WV, the motto by which attendees live by is also the name.  How convenient.  Despite the mantra that anything goes, the festival has been noted as one of the better organized, least problematic, and most entertaining of...

Amanda Bell was covering the Rothbury Festival on behalf of the Grateful Web.  Her pictures are starting to roll in.  Right now we have Thursday pictures up, but check back throughout the week as we add a lot more pictures from the remainder of the weekend. Also, Amanda's Rothbury write-...

Grateful Web was again on-hand today at the Mile High Festival, just outside of Denver, Colorado. Check out photos & video clips from today's bands and festival-goers.  We'll have a lot more pictures and a full write-up soon.  But here is a start and we hope you enjoy them....

Merging American rock with African benga music from Kenya is a bold mix, but Extra Golden has the daring and the chops to do it. Ian Eagleson (guitar) had been studying African music since 1995, traveling as often as he could to Kenya to document traditional popular music played by the masters of...
