NedFest is an annual three-day outdoor music, arts and microbrew festival with camping located in the mountains of Nederland Colorado, just 17 miles west of (3, 000 ft. above) Boulder. Today NedFest announced their inital line-up, including Keller Williams, Steve Kimock, Kyle Hollingsworth, Melvin Seals, Jimmy Herring, Vince Herman and many more.
The music featured @ NedFest is in the Bluegrass, Jazz, Jamband, Jamgrass and World genres, or moreover, a sound that blends these styles and others together. Up to six bands perform each day on one stage with acoustic 'tweener sets between each band.
When "Michigan Mike" Torpie passed away there was a lot of doubts in the community about what was going to happen to NedFest. Well I'll tell you.
A group of his friends got together and asked his family what they would like to do with the festival. The Torpie family told us they did not want to make money from Mike's death. Since this was never our intention either we formed a non-profit organization named "Peak to Peak Music Education Association" or PPMEA for short. This organization intends to help in the education of music for children and various other child related education things. The Torpie family liked the idea and gave us their blessings to continue NedFest.
