Friends House Concerts Announcement and Ten Days to Give!

Embark on a Musical Adventure.

O Brother (or Sister), Can You Spare a Give! Donation?

Thanks to the amazing generosity of 72 donors and our incredible matching grant sponsors, Rocky Mountain Highway Music Collaborative has already secured $11,991 in the 2017 Give! Campaign. With just ten days left before the end of the year, however, we hope that you will help us to raise an additional $3,000 to meet our ultimate goal of $15,000.

An old Gypsy Proverb reminds: “In Hard Times, Stay Where There Are Songs.” For four years, the staff and Board of Directors of Rocky Mountain Highway have worked tirelessly alongside hundreds of volunteers to bring roots music to the Pikes Peak region, presenting nearly 200 sets for over 10,000 people in Colorado Springs, Black Forest, Monument, Manitou Springs, and Woodland Park. More than 50% of our annual budget is paid directly to the artists who make the music come alive, including 171 local musicians and songwriters so far. Next year is the 10th anniversary of the MeadowGrass Music Festival and we have our sights set on continuing to transform our community through music. But we can’t do it without your support!

Every donation counts – the minimum donation is just $10 but donors who give at least $25 are eligible to receive cool rewards from the Give! Campaign. In addition, each person aged 21 or older who donates at least $25 to Rocky Mountain Highway is entitled to one free drink from our friends at both Pikes Peak Brewing and 3 Hundred Days of Shine in Monument. Give at least $50 to Rocky Mountain Highway and we will also gladly deliver a MeadowGrass mug, t-shirt or poster to you! And there are even a few MeadowGrass posters from various years signed by the performers that are available to anyone who contributes at least $250. To learn more or claim your reward e-mail And please – if you have the means, make your tax-deductible gift to Rocky Mountain Highway today – remember that the campaign ends at midnight on Sunday, December 31!
