Thank you, Colorado Springs!
Rocky Mountain Highway Music Collaborative is honored to be in the distinguished company of the awesome winners of the Colorado Springs Independent’s Best Of awards. Once again,the MeadowGrass Music Festival took home first place honors in the “Best Music Festival” category. And you haven’t seen anything yet – we are looking forward to the best fest yet in 2018 as MeadowGrass turns ten years old.
Meanwhile, a very limited number of tickets are still available for this Saturday’s concert featuring Head for the Hills, one of the bands who performed at the very first MeadowGrass in 2009. The concert will take at the historic Western Jubilee Warehouse in downtown Colorado Springs. A virtuoso string quartet, Head for the Hlls plays a style of music that has been dubbed “post-modern bluegrass,” combining elements of traditional music with jazz, folk, world, and indie rock influences.
Head for the Hills have been bringing their music to discerning audiences at major festivals from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to South by Southwest and a multitude of stages in between–including Summer Camp Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, RockyGrass, DelFest, Northwest String Summit, FloydFest, Strawberry Music Festival and many more. The band has been featured on NPR Ideastream and eTown and charted on the CMJ Top 200.
Advance tickets are a bargain at just $20 each; the price goes up $5 at the door. The music starts at 7:30 but feel free to come early to enjoy a delicious meal from the Colorado Cafe Food Truck. October is Arts Month, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak region is urging everyone to have at least on new cultural experience – make yours Head for the Hills at the Western Jubilee!
