Mabon Concert is just 3 weeks away! [ Wildflower image ]

Planet Bluegrass Ranch in September"It's one of my favorite shows of the year," says Yonder Mountain String Band's Ben Kaufmann, "presenting songs in a different context; scaling things back; performing songs that didn't seem like they worked in Yonder."

Join us this Saturday (September 17) along the St. Vrain River in Lyons for our 9th Annual Mabon Concert featuring Ben Kaufmann & Adam Aijala of Yonder Mountain String Band. We're opening the Ranch gates at 2pm for camping, games, pickin' along the river, food and drink, and one last chance to celebrate summer with your closest friends under the cliffs and cottonwoods of the Planet Bluegrass Ranch.
