History of CBMS, RockyGrass and bluegrass in Colorado

Hi everyone,

I’ve been recruited by the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society to write its official history. I am looking for folks who were around in the 1970s and 80s who might have memorabilia, ticket stubs, newsletters, programs, articles, fliers, photos or posters from RockyGrass or other CBMS sponsored events. I am also looking for musicians who played in early CBMS member bands, took part in instrument contests or played at the first few RockyGrass Fests (when it was held at the Adams County Fairgrounds), as well as former board members of the CBMS.

CBMS and Planet Bluegrass have some information, but there’s a lot we need to fill in. If you or someone you know is an oldtimer, please email me at CBMShistory@gmail.com.

Please pass this along to whomever might be interested!!

Not that I would ever call him an “old-timer” (to his face) :lol, but the Mayor of Town Park would be a great reference to start with. Love you, Tom!! :flower :flower
