2018 marks the 10 th Anniversary for the Palisade Bluegrass and Roots Festival. Over the years this local, homegrown festival has created many magical memories for lovers of the fast pickin’, soulful lyrics and Colorado festival vibes. The festival’s success is evident as the number of attendees has tripled in size over the past ten years and continually attracts some of the nation’s hottest bluegrass names. This year is no exception, as the festival announced a packed lineup, filled with award-winning artists who have mesmerized us in the past with their memorable performances. Kicking off the festival on Friday night is the Grand Valley’s own, Bluegrass Offenders, followed by the classical, gypsy, bluegrass swing sounds of Rapidgrass and Colorado’s quintessential string band, Trout Steak Revival. Friday night ends with a Palisade Super Jam, including both Trout Steak Revival and Rapidgrass for a night of invigorating entertainment. Throughout Saturday, visitors will enjoy a stacked lineup of award-winning artists. River Arkansas, Ghost of Paul Revere, Head for the Hills, Della Mae and the famous Guit-Steel guitar player, Junior Brown are sure to bring visitors the classic bluegrass sounds they love to hear. Finishing with a bang, Sunday’s program is nothing short of spectacular. Starting with the skilled acoustic sounds of Masontown, followed by the distinct “alt-country” bluegrass tunes of Wood & Wire, the “Galaxy Grass” compositions of Kitchen Dwellers and the harmonious, soulful- bluegrass rock sounds from Portland, Oregon’s prized bluegrass stars, Fruition.
