Our lineup includes well-known Americana, Country, Bluegrass and Folk musicians, performing in a beautiful alpine setting where the autumn gold of the aspens will just be hitting its peak. Below is a slide show of some of the performers for this year’s show.
• The Lost Love Saloon
The Lost Love Saloon will serve as our casual smaller venue where music will start daily at 5 pm. Inside the Lost Love Saloon you will see an array of performers casually swapping songs and trading guitars with other festival artists who happen to be walking by. This little tavern often produces some of the most magical performances around. You never know who’s gonna walk in and pick up a guitar…
• The Motherlode
The Motherlode is next door to the Lost Love Saloon. A great American honky-tonk of the first order, it was built in the mid-1930s as a saloon, dancehall and gambling establishment. Well, two out of three ain’t bad, and even though gambling ended in the early 1950s, the saloon and dancehall are still going strong. This classic and intimate venue will be home to our evening headline performances. These include James McMurtry, Shawn Mullins, Chuck Prophet, Jim Lauderdale, and host Max Gomez.
