Inaugural FreeFall Bluegrass Festival Set to Take Place in Vail, CO October 14 & 15, 2023

The Free Music Festival features The Bluegrass Generals, Drew Emmitt Band, Andy Thorn & Friends and more.

 

Here is a brief list of some of our favorite things:

 

Free.  As in, things that don’t cost money.

Fall.  As in, Autumn.

October.  A month in Autumn, otherwise known as Fall.  Known for perfect weather and beautiful foliage.

Colorado.  One of the most beautiful places in the world.  Renowned for its mountain towns.

Bluegrass Generals.  As in, Andy Hall and Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters, and a talented group of rotating members that they always put together to help undertake their mission to play kick-ass bluegrass music.

 

Why, you may ask, are we sharing our list of favorite things as if we are Julie Andrews consoling the Van Trapp children?

Because we have found a festival that includes them all!

 

FreeFall Bluegrass Festival is a FREE event taking place in Vail, CO on October 14 & 15.  The inaugural festival includes Bluegrass Generals, Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon) Band, Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon) & Friends, Jeremy Garrett (Infamous Stringdusters) & River Wild, Tenth Mountain Division, and Riverfront Ramblers.

Did we mention that it’s FREE?  And in the FALL?

Yeah.

We’re in!
