It goes without saying that festivals are the closest thing to heaven on Earth if you’re a lover of music, camping, and general merriment.  But these days, even festi-heaven has its drawbacks: the buzzkill of face-planted partiers, hustlers trying to make a buck every ten minutes, missing entire sets for a half hour walk between campsites and stages, and sticky-fingered sketchballs who forgot to pack their morality.  But fear not, festie-friends!  Delfest is tiny slice of heaven free of all that mess, a place where twang will soothe the soul, a veritable Eden of all that is right with the world.

Kyle Hollingsworth and Conscious Alliance present

With three consecutive sell-outs of his flagship event Kyle’s Brew Fest, Kyle Hollingsworth, keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident, brings his charity beer festival and concert in Berkeley, CA, on Saturday, July 14th, at Shattuck Down Low, prior to The String Cheese Incident’s first of two consecutive concerts at The Greek Theatre later that evening, the Brew Fest will feature more than 10 breweries and 20 craft beers plus an exclusive performance from Kyle Hollingsworth with members of the Bay Area’s Hot Buttered Rum.

YarmonyGrass 2011 Photos & Review

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Chief Yarmony silhouette, Yarmony Mountain

Legend has it that Chief Yarmony was laid to rest on top of his namesake mountain, but I bet he enjoyed the amazing music echoing throughout his home last weekend during the 6th annual YarmonyGrass. The festival  provides music collaboration with some of bluegrass’ finest amidst a backdrop that is hard to beat. Blue skies, pirate costumes (YarrrmonyGrass, as the festival is sometimes referred), and closeto 1,500 attendees congregated along Rancho del Rio, CO. When the train rolls by behind the stage, you know you’ve arrived.

This festival encompasses the heart of bluegrass offering one bigx jam session after another. Artists are called up to contribute – whether it’s bluegrass veteran Peter Rowan, Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, Scott Law’s Santa Cruz sound, or Bill Nershi’s flat-picking guitar – it’s evident that these guys love playing with one another.  Breakout sessions can be found backstage because the musicians can’t even get enough. I almost wonder who is having more fun – us or Read more…
