The Estes Park Bluegrass Festival 2014 has been postponed. The following has been posted on the festival web site.
Thank you for your interest and support of the upcoming Estes Park Bluegrass Festival. Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the event and are working now on setting a new date.
To the credit of our team, we put this event together in a very short period of time, and although we were able to put all of the pieces into place, we did not provide adequate time for fans and sponsors to make arrangements to participate.
We apologize for the unfortunate news, but will gladly let you know when we have rescheduled and can put on the festival, full of bands, vendors and bluegrass fans, as originally intended. Please check our web site www.simplybluegrass.com for updates.

The "TRAMP House" in north Reno is a house we use for classes, lessons and "boarding" of traveling musicians. It has a great deck and bar-b-q overlooking downtown, and various spaces to jam in---the garage, the deck, the living room, etc
There are many music students, friends and professional musicians who know the TRAMP house, and they're all welcome. In fact, everyone's welcome at "TRAMP Jams". We've got room to split into several jam groups, if necessary.
The Stillwater Hill Bluegrass Band will be performing live at the Black Dog at 8:00PM on Saturday, June 8th
We hope to see you at this wonderful venue in the historic town of Snoqualmie, WA. On stage we will be welcoming Douglas Johnston, who will be playing the low notes for us this week, in the place of our regular substitute, Dave Toler, who has been substituting for Terry Niehaus.
At any rate, it will all fall into place next Saturday. Stop by and enjoy a meal, or a beverage, or both!
