|Kinfolk Celebration - Sept 19-20

It's been just over a year since our town of Lyons, CO was hit by a historic 500-year flood, causing devastating destruction to our town's infrastructure, to our local community, and to the Planet Bluegrass Ranch.
The day after the flood we vowed to rebuild better than ever. So we bought a backhoe and a dump truck, and we haven't rested a day since. Thanks to the tireless work of our crew, Planet Bluegrass 2.0 is now a reality. Hear the story of our rebirth from PBS NewsHour, Westword, Denver Post, 9News, CBS4-Denver, 7News-Denver, and Boulder Weekly. We continue to encourage you to help our town of Lyons and fellow members of our local community who are still in immediate need by generously supporting the many resources at LyonsFightsBack.org.
If you missed this year's sold-out Telluride Bluegrass, you can still order our limited collector's edition book, Telluride Bluegrass Festival: Forty Years of Festivation. The 216-page hardcover book features more than 350 photos; essays by Sam Bush, Chris Thile, and dozens more; gorgeous reproductions of each year's art poster; and year-by-year insider accounts from Pastor Mustard.
With much love,
The Folks on Planet Bluegrass
