Rocky Mountain Folks Festival

A broad mountain stream and towering red rock bluffs surround the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, Colorado. It’s a stunning and peaceful refuge, and to the delight of music fans nationwide, there’s also a stage! For over 30 years, festivalgoers (or “Festivarians'' as they’ve been dubbed by Planet Bluegrass), have been making the trek to Colorado’s front range for the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival; three days of music, camping, and inspiration from songwriters of all genres.

Today, the good folks at Planet Bluegrass are pleased to announce the initial lineup for Rocky Mountain Folks Festival 2023. Charley Crockett, The Tallest Man on Earth, Josh Ritter and The Royal City Band, Tank and the Bangas, Larkin Poe, and The Secret Sisters will take the stage at the 33rd annual celebration of great songs which takes place August 11-13 in beautiful Lyons, CO, at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch along the St. Vrain River.

Today, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival proudly announced a hefty lineup addition to their 32nd annual festival taking place over the weekend of August 12-14 in beautiful Lyons, Colorado. Yola, Sarah Jarosz, Robert Earl Keen, and Rodney Crowell are among the long list of artists joining the three-decade-running celebration of songwriting at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch along the St. Vrain River.

Molly Tuttle began her musical journey as a kid growing up in the Bay Area of California. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, she is transforming the roots of Americana into a sound uniquely her own. IMBA named her guitarist of the year 2017 and in 2018. The Americana Music Association named her Instrumentalist of the Year 2018.  With her first solo album release, When You’re Ready, she is poised to contribute new and fresh thoughts into a genre that can desperately use it.

It's a wonderful life after all… If you want a piece of feel-good to put under the tree this year, look no further than the at your service songwriting duo extraordinaire, Arthur Lee Land and Carol Lee.
