Planet Bluegrass Folk Festival. Lyons, CO. August 14th, 2010.

Here are some pictures from our day at the 20th Annual Rocky Mountain Folk Festival in Lyons, CO. 

Left click on the pictures to see them full size.

Girlyman came onto the main stage at 11am.  
Their songs have great lyrics and amazingly tight harmonies.

Another picture of Girlyman performing.

"Dala" performing.
Their song called "Horses" brings tears to my eyes.
Written for a fan who once was very active, and then was injured.
Now paralyzed, he can't even talk.
His mother wrote them and told them about his situation.
They went to visit with him, and wrote this song after the visit.

Greg Brown performing on the main stage.

Even though it was too dark for a good picture, 
We can't leave out "The Swell Season."
They include Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
(from the movie "Once")
If you've seen the movie, you know their harmonies and their energy.
If you haven't seen the movie, I recommend it.
They rocked the place for over an hour.
