School’s Out … for Summer!

Friends, we were amazed to realize this week that the missive that you are currently reading is no less than the 100th newsletter that we have produced since embarking on our non-profit musical journey in 2014. Now that’s a lot of words!

Over the past few years we have worked hard to try to ensure that the whole community knows where to see live Americana music in the Pikes Peak Region, through the Pikes Peak Concert Calendar and the Grass Roots Revival radio show on KCMJ as well as this newsletter. Our team at Rocky Mountain Highway has produced three iterations of the MeadowGrass Music Festival and organized dozens of high quality roots music performances.

At this time your humble correspondent finds it necessary to take most of the rest of the summer off to make room for other projects, so this will likely be the last newsletter that you receive for awhile. In the meantime, we hope you’ll join us at the following free events presented by Rocky Mountain Highway.


First, we are proud to announce that the next summer outdoor neighborhood concert on the Patty Jewett golf course will feature New Vintage Jazz, our first foray into “serious” jazz. Weather permitting, the quartet will set up outside the patio of Patty Jewett Bar & Grill; in case of rain, we’ll back in the bar lobby. Admission is free and the show begins at 8:30 pm. Feel free to bring a chair or blanket to set up on the lawn. Read more
