For three days, Pueblo's air will hum with fiddle, banjo, and guitar twang emanating from the 23rd Annual Bluegrass Festival at the Fair. Formerly known as Bluegrass on the River, the festival has been relocated to the Colorado State Fairgrounds for its 23rd year, filling the main stage and the nearby Pickin' Parlor with a consortium of 20 bluegrass bands. The Claire Lynch Band backs up their frontwoman’s brassy drawl with the thump of Mark Schatz’s standup bass and sunny harmonies during optimistic cuts such as “Great Day In the Mornin'.” Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband are equally upbeat, though slightly more aggressive thanks to the momentous cymbal crashes of drummer Nate Smeding, who built his first kit at age 8 out of pots and pans tied together by strands of John Bonham’s beard. Festival-goers can rest their eardrums at nearby camping spots between each day (not included with this Groupon) and peruse the website for showtimes and a full list of bands.
