YarmonyGrass Festival Brings Members of Yonder, Cheese and more to the Colorado River!

The third weekend of August will once again mark the arrival of YarmonyGrass at Rancho Del Rio on the banks of the Colorado River. The Centennial State’s homegrown ninth annual event features performances from Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass featuring Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) & Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), The Motet, Wicked Messenger featuring Adam Aijala & Ben Kaufmann (both from Yonder Mountain String Band), Rising Appalachia, Secret Special Guests featuring Allie Kral and and many more. Past attendees could also tell you that no YarmonyGrass would be complete without the returning late-night Joint Set – an impromptu collaboration of festival performers led by String Cheese Incident’s Bill Nershi in which anything and everything can happen! With an authentic atmosphere that is uniquely Colorado, YarmonyGrass looks to build on a tradition of unique musical collaborations, community spirit and an active mountain lifestyle, which both the festival’s artists and patrons have helped cultivate over nine years. “This year’s festival once again features a number of Colorado’s up and coming bands while continuing a strong tradition of bringing in fresh acts from other parts of the country,” says founder Andrew McConathy. More than just a music festival, YarmonyGrass is held along the Colorado River with numerous activities taking place at Rancho Del Rio. This year’s event has condensed festivities to a single site, offering attendees the ideal opportunity to immerse themselves and explore their surroundings via raft, stand-up paddleboard, kayak, bicycle and hiking trails. On-site camping is encouraged and included with purchase of a festival pass.
