June 6 – 8
Reservoir Hill Park
Pagosa Springs, Colo.
Reservoir Hill Park certainly could hold more people, but the real magic of Pagosa Folk ’N Bluegrass is the intimate, spacious feeling.
The main stage is set up under a tent that holds only 500 people, but many more folks gather around the open meadow behind the tent for the headliners. Most festivals are held in fields, whereas Pagosa is held in the woods alongside towering pines that provide tons of natural shade.
You’re going there to see: Peter Rowan’s Twang an’ Groove, The Deadly Gentlemen.
You’re going to come home talking about: Shook Twins, Milkdrive.
