What a weekend! We were thrilled to bring you a live stream of the 2014 festival. Over the next few weeks, we'll be posting highlights and archives from the festival right here on our RockyGrass base camp - http://www.afterfm.com/rockygrass. Thanks to all of the kind listeners who made donations in our tip jar. You can still do that by the way. Wink wink.
We have been broadcasting live from RockyGrass every year since 2008. In 2012 we began adding a few festival highlights online. Listen, enjoy, and please spread the word about the live RockyGrass stream and archives.
If you're new to us, you'll likely be interested in our weekly Bluegrass show, Old Grass Gnu Grass. It's a Colorado favorite that has been hitting the airwaves every Saturday morning on KGNU from 9:00a-Noon (MT) since 1978.
RockyGrass Archives 2014: It's hard not to notice when a grand piano rolls onto the Planet Bluegrass festival grounds during a Bluegrass festival. But indeed it did and with it one of the hottest sets of 2014's RockyGrass festival. Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby with Kentucky Thunder brought the house down with their Friday night headlining set.
RockyGrass Archives 2013: For more than 50 years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hardcore bluegrass fans. To close the opening night of the 41st RockyGrass, the Del McCoury Band took the stage for a stellar evening and one giant shooting star that made it's way across the sky during the second encore.
RockyGrass Archives 2013: The one and only Tim O'Brien took the stage Friday night with an incredibly hot band made up of guitarist Bryan Sutton, banjoist Noam Pikelny, fiddler Casey Driessen, and bassist Mike Bub. It was a stellar set and one of the many highlights of Friday's line up.
RockyGrass Archives 2013: Swiss born banjo player, Jens Krüger teamed up with his brother Uwe and New York City native Joel Landsberg to form the Krüger Brothers. On Friday evening, the trio made their way to the stage at RockyGrass for a great set of music in their 6th appearance at the festival.
RockyGrass Archives 2013: The Deadly Gentlemen made their way from Boston to kick off the Saturday line-up at RockyGrass. The band hit the stage at about the same time that their first release on Rounder Records was hitting the shelves. For many at RockyGrass, this was their first chance to catch the band, but certainly not their last.
