Railroad Earth Will Head Up The YarmonyGrass Festival
2010 marks the five-year anniversary for the YarmonyGrass Festival - a two-day camping event slated for late summer in the Colorado Rockies. In just a few short years the event has grown from a word of mouth gathering into a full-fledged festival specializing in all the activities the Colorado Rockies has to offer.
YarmonyGrass features an array of musical flavors including a two-night stand with the six-piece Americana outfit, Railroad Earth. Long time veterans of YarmonyGrass, Railroad Earth has built incredible steam over the past few years with notable performances on some of the most prestigious stages in the country, including Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, Telluride Bluegrass, Rothbury, 10,000 Lakes, and many more. Other notables include Bill Nershi (String Cheese Incident) performing with guitarist Scott Law and Tao Seeger, as well as Head for the Hills, Elephant Revival, EOTO, The Contribution and Kyle Hollingsworth Band - performing with DJ Logic and members of the Motet.
Each year the event strives to combine musical performances with unique outdoor activities such as rafting, a live music float trip, down home BBQ (hosted by members of Honkytonk Homeslice) and even a kickball tournament aimed at pitting festival attendees against their musical heros. Also featured at this year's event is a rare chance to go flyfishing with Railroad Earth's, Tim Carbone. This year's YarmonyGrass Festival will also feature a riverside bar, nestled on the banks of the Colorado river, featuring a full-slate of singer songwriters and acoustic performances as well as the one and only floating stage taking place on the river on Saturday afternoon with live music chosen by fan vote at www.yarmonygrass.com
