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.
