    Lyons’ Watergirls preach the gospel of perseverance at RockyGrass

    By John Lehndorff 2:15 p.m. July 27, 2014, Lyons CO. – More than few tears fell near the St. Vrain River this morning as The Watergirls, a band composed of Lyons musicians who were all severely impacted by last September’s deluge, played songs of sadness as well as perseverance. It’s no secret that bluegrass was – and still largely is, a man’s world with some notable exceptions. On this wonderful weekend at Rockygrass, three bands composed solely of women musicians performed […]

  • Dueling banjos under a double rainbow at 2014 RockyGrass

    By John Lehndorff 7 p.m. July 25, Lyons: To jazz and gypsy music fans, John Jorgenson is a guitar deity. Telluride fans know John Randall as a guitarist and singer with Sam Bush and Lyle Lovett. Herb Pedersen was a member of The Dillards, the Desert Rose Band, and Old and the In The Grey (filling in for Jerry Garcia on banjo). Together, they produced one of the freshest sets of bluegrass and jazzgrass I’ve heard in ages with technical […]
