RockyGrass Announces Initial 2018 Lineup


The 2018 RockyGrass Festival will be held July 27 – 29 in Lyons, Colorado. Organizers of the 46th annual event, which was founded by Bill Monroe and the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society in 1973, have announced the initial lineup.

Highlights include a reunited Old & In The Grey (featuring Peter Rowan, David Grisman, Sam Bush, Keith Little & Samson Grisman), a special David Grisman Quintet reunion of the 1978 Hot Dawg band (featuring David Grisman, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Todd Phillips and special guest Wyatt Rice) and a quintet featuring female IBMA instrumentalist of the year winners (Alison Brown, Becky Buller, Sierra Hull, Missy Raines & Molly Tuttle). Also of note is the only-at-RockyGrass appearance of the Sam Bush Bluegrass Band and a festival-closing set from Hot Rize in honor of their 40th anniversary.
