Crested Butte, CO — For thirteen years, the Crested Butte Music Festival (CBMF) has turned Crested Butte into one big concert hall in the summer, with music resounding from outdoors venues, hotels, stunning private homes, churches and barns. This summer, for the first time, CBMF will host “Bluegrass in Paradise”, a five-day festival for one of the most popular musical genres in the American West.
From July 6-10, both traditional bluegrass and “newgrass” will be showcased in a range of events: a three-day camp for kids, workshops for adults, children’s performances and six top-level bands. For five days of foot-stomping fun, learning, and camaraderie, “Bluegrass in Paradise” will keep festival goers on their feet.
The host of the Festival is internationally acclaimed newgrass star – and resident of Crested Butte – Drew Emmitt. Emmitt is not only one of the most energetic and innovative mandolin players in bluegrass today, he is also a singer, storyteller, and master of multiple stringed instruments. He has played with the band Leftover Salmon, and most recently, the Drew Emmitt band. This jack-of-all-roots-trades will be a stimulating guide through the five days of “Bluegrass in Paradise.”
