For sixteen years, the Crested Butte Music Festival has turned Crested Butte into a big concert hall in the summer, with music resounding from outdoors venues, hotels, stunning private homes, churches and barns. This summer, for the third time, we will host “Bluegrass In Paradise”, a seven-day festival featuring one of the most popular musical genres in the United States.
Traditional bluegrass and “newgrass” will be showcased in a range of events: a five-day camp for kids, workshops for adults, children’s performances and ten top-level bands. For seven days of foot-stomping fun, learning, and camaraderie, “Bluegrass In Paradise” will keep festival goers on their feet.
The host of the Festival is internationally acclaimed newgrass star – and resident of Crested Butte – Drew Emmitt. Emmitt is not only one of the most energetic and innovative mandolin players in bluegrass today, he is also a singer, storyteller, and master of multiple stringed instruments. He has played with the band Leftover Salmon, and most recently, the Drew Emmitt band. This jack-of-all-roots-trades will be a stimulating guide through the seven days of “Bluegrass In Paradise.”
