Did you know that Steve Martin plays banjo?

Here are some more highlights from RockyGrass, mostly of the performers we watched. Anything Mike Marshall or Darol Anger touch turns to gold in my book, so we loved their performances with all of their different groups, including Psychograss, and Republic of Strings. Del McCoury Band is always an absolute favorite for me; a traditional, charming, and tight performance is always guaranteed. And when David Grisman got up there with them it just sealed the deal. I spent some time spying on a dobro player down by the river. Hot Rize's pals Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers showed up again! Always entertaining in their goofy charm...And, by the way, did YOU know that Steve Martin played banjo? :) Check this out if you didn't catch it already: Steve Martin and Steep Canyon Rangers perform a song for atheists...

RockyGrass 2011

I wasn't going to do this because the idea of doing our recent trip to Colorado justice was too daunting. And if I go back to my Rockygrass 2011 folder, I'll see all the ones I missed and wished I had included. But that's okay...here are just a few highlights. All of the musicians were amazing but I only got a few decent photos this year because I was less determined; I had my fill being a 'concert photographer' with the 300mm lens last year. This year I just wanted to capture the vibe, the happiness, the friendly atmosphere and overall experience. That included the life size Connect4 game, the hoopers, the kids, the candids of happy festivarians, and even a few selfies this time!

It was soo much fun spending time with my friends from Albuquerque too, The Squash Blossom Boys. Get their album! You won't be disappointed! And what location could be more perfect than the amazing Lyons, CO? Perfect sunny days, cool starry nights, and a river to tube from the venue back to our campsite when we got too hot. This was our first year (of the three) running our own tarp too...we had the "K.U." in tie dye pink duct tape tarp! Andy thought the lines for numbers and to run was ridiculous; I found it oddly exhilarating, a comical version of the land runs our ancestors made perhaps. You can find more of these photos in my facebook album if you are interested...
