Yonder’s Kinfolk Celebration Returns to Planet Bluegrass
Yonder Mountain String Band’s Kinfolk Celebration will return this summer to Planet Bluegrass for the first time since 2003. Hosted by Colorado festival producer Planet Bluegrass, the event will take place at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, CO from August 24-25. The 2-day concert will feature multiple sets from Yonder Mountain String Band, with additional acts to be announced in the coming weeks.
“The Planet Bluegrass Ranch has become a home to Yonder Mountain,” says guitarist Adam Aijala. “Since our first play for RockyGrass in 1999, we have always enjoyed being both performers and fans of the PB music scene. Great scenery, great people, and great times. In light of this, it’s no surprise we chose this site to host our annual Kinfolk Celebration. It’s been 9 years since Planet Bluegrass has hosted this event and we’re excited to bring it back to Colorado.”
Camping will be available onsite at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch and under the cliffs in Meadow Park. Tickets and camping go onsale on April 20 at 9AM MDT:“here.“http://shop.bluegrass.com.
