Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre Morrison, CO Words by J. Picard Photos by Kimberly Ann Images We were in the dog days of summer and Denver was blanketed in a heat wave causing record high temperatures. Yet there we were at 3:00 PM in the Upper North lot of Red Rocks, gearing up and pre-gaming for what was billed as an "Evening with The String Cheese Incident." The previous night's show was getting rave reviews across social media and anticipation for night two was elevated. We bantered with the folks next us and then cooked them dinner, as well as anyone else who happened to wander by while the grill was going! Our neighbor, Seth, wandered over for a burger and an interview for my podcast Galaxy Tenants. It was his 277th String Cheese show!

Rancho Del Rio Bond, CO Words by J. Picard Photos by Scott Seifert Gratitude and appreciation have been the foundation of our time at Yarmony Music Festival (formerly, YarmonyGrass). Gratitude for the beauty of the space, Rancho Del Rio, and the mighty Colorado River that flows through it. Appreciation for the experiences, friendships and memories created. Over the span of the fourteen years that we've attended, we have seen firsthand a bonding of a core group of people who have become great friends, characters in each others' stories and in some cases, life partners. Following the incredible energy of the 2019 festival it was announced that Yarmony would be put to rest, to the dismay of many pirates. Though times got strange and folks were pushed apart, there was still a low, slow, pulse beating in the background.
