Shelly/Quinn Baseball Field
Idaho Springs, Colo.
Clear Creek RapidGrass is a locally grown, locally supported festival that in spite of its smaller size, and in fact, expressly because of its smaller size, is able to offer a high-end event with an excellent lineup, without the massive crowds that usually come with such a lineup.
Now in its third year, Clear Creek RapidGrass is almost a farm to table experience, with so much of the local community engaged in the experience and with such an emphasis on Colorado talent. The festival, which is established as a non-profit, also donates the profits of the event back to the community. Last year’s proceeds went to one local high school student to help support their musical dreams.
Headliners this year include Mountain Heart, Hickory Project, Head for the Hills, and Matt Flinner Trio. Former Colorado resident guitarist Ross Martin is also slated to play a set with Grant Gordy.
