Thanks to everyone who helped make our autumn Wildflower Concert Series our most successful ever! Held in our indoor Wildflower Pavilion in Lyons, these shows concluded with Lyons' own Taarka with Caribou Mountain Collective on Friday, November 11. These intimate concerts feature beer, wine and hot drinks; bonfires along the St. Vrain River; and the final few sets of music on Planet Bluegrass in 2016. Watch for the announcement of the spring 2017 series early this winter.

It's been more than 3 years since our town of Lyons, CO was hit by a historic 500-year flood. Learn more about the rebirth of Planet Bluegrass from PBS NewsHour, Westword, Denver Post, 9News, CBS4-Denver, 7News-Denver, and Boulder Weekly.

With much love,
