This week's cover story is about how Lyons developed a music community and how that community has been impacted by the flooding last fall.
Much of the story focuses on Planet Bluegrass, an organization that three music festivals, including two at its ranch in Lyons. This weekend, it will be open for RockyGrass, its first festival since the flood caused $1.3 million worth of damage nine months ago.
We have a pair of tickets for Saturday, which features Alison Krauss, Steep Canyon Rangers, Uncle Earl and more.
