Wildflower Spring Concert Schedule

When the September 2013 floods hit Planet Bluegrass, the raging waters completely destroyed the beloved Wildflower Pavilion concert venue. Though they rebuilt the structure in time for last summer’s festivals, this spring Planet Bluegrass will officially dedicate the new Wildflower Pavilion, complete with state-of-the-art sound and lights, rooftop solar panels, seasonal sliding doors, heating system, and permanent bar areas.
Beginning next month, the Wildflower Pavilion will celebrate its grand reopening concert season with five special Friday evenings of music.

On March 27, cherished singer/songwriter Ellis, a longtime veteran of the Folks Festival and Song School, fills the Wildflower with her whole-hearted songs. Then in April and May the Planet will showcase progressive bluegrass, creative songwriting, and musical virtuosity with veterans of the RockyGrass and Telluride Bluegrass stages: Head for the Hills on April 10; Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, and The Lil’

Yes, another week gone by, with some snow and more to come. The TV states that Colorado snow pack is fifty inches below normal. Maybe we will get some spring snows, which will do a lot of good. Spring is just around the corner, the crocus are out beside my driveway

Roberts To Compete In China

By Renée Haip
After finishing in 18th place at Nike Cross Nationals in Portland this past December, Paul Roberts immediately got back to training for his next national competition, the USA Cross Country Championships. Held on Saturday, February 7, at the Flatirons Golf Course in Boulder, Roberts’ aim was to finish in the top six and secure a spot on the China bound USA Junior Cross Country Team.

For the Junior Men’s 8K race, competitors must be under twenty years old, which produces a mix of very competitive college and high school aged athletes. Paul Roberts’ strategy was to run at the front, and by 3K, Roberts even took the lead.
