RockyGrass 2007

The 35th RockyGrass kicked off on a wet Friday morning following a night of steady, drought-busting rain. Although tents and camps were exposed to the deluge, the enthusiasm for the fest wasn't dampened. A sold-out festival of 3,500 warmed up early for the Friday land rush and tarpage competition.

Today's schedule starts easy with Long Road Home, an up-and-coming young band contest winner. Teen phenom Sierra Hull and Highway 111 follow to round out the morning. The afternoon schedule kicks off with FP favorite Cadillac Sky, with the Kruger Brothers and Chris Thile's How to Grow a Band rounding out the afternoon.

Evening sets start with Peter Rowan and Tony Rice Quartet, build with David Grisman's Bluegrass Experience, and the peak with the grand finale of the Del McCoury Band.

The electronic amenities at RockyGrass aren't quite as cool as Telluride, but expect to see daily reports and pix throughout the weekend.
