RANCHSTOCK III !
August 8, 9 and 10 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) 2014, up at Kinney Creek Ranch (our ranch) between Hot Sulphur Springs and Granby on the way to Steamboat Springs
Three days of peace, live music, dancing, yoga, mountain biking, camping, hiking, face painting, kickball, frisbee golf, potato sack races, and whatever else you, your families, friends, kids, toddlers, cousins, and whoever else feel like doing. All on 27 acres of idyllic (or at least really nice) ranchland, pine trees, and aspen groves nestled at the base of the Music Mountains outside of Hot Sulphur Springs Colorado.
We've done this two years running, and we are all having a blast. We have had up to probably two hundred people--moms, dads, kids, dancers, musicians, and anyone who likes music in the mountains--up here for a really special weekend. So we are going to keep this going. And growing.
For 2014, we have a really fun three day weekend planned. We'll have a some great live bands playing sets, sing-a-longs for the kids, lots of open jams for you musicians and wanna-be musicians (with tambourines and shakers and washboard and extra congas available for you yet-to-be discovered percussionists). Games and hikes for kids, mountain bikes for adults, and food and fun for everyone. And, this year, a special treat--we are working with the Hot Sulphur Springs Art Council to bring up some local artisans and craftsmen to display and sell their wares.
Here's what we got lined up so far:
Full Belly, a super talented dance band from Boulder who's been featured on "MTV Real World Denver", but more importantly are just an amazingly great spirited group, is headlining Saturday night. Claddagh, a nationally recognized Irish Band from Granby, Colorado will be providing an evening of high energy traditional Irish music on Saturday Eve. Doc Haze, a jamming acoustic Band from the Front Range, is headlining Friday evening.
Other great bands include the Sasquatch Mountain Project, Grand County's best bluegrass; Denver rock 'n rollers the Inablers, Golden, Colorado jammers High Parkway. DJ Norm with the Awareness Center 4 Excellence, an organization in Granby dedicated to finding new ways to help educate and inspire children, will be DJ-ing the "Funk Fest" on Saturday, with funky music to get everyone dancing. There are rumours that the long-awaited (feared?) reunion of rockabilly legends the Lonesome Truckers will take place sometime that weekend. And there may even be a special appearance by Dan Peterson and his All-Star Truck-Stop Dog Band. Finally, we will close out the weekend with a set of inspirational Gospel from legendary Hammond organ virtuoso Dave Naples on Sunday morning.
