Camping out and Jammin' Out

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - People from across the nation came to Palisade for more than just their famous peaches.

Palisade hosted their 10th annual Bluegrass and Roots Festival this weekend at Riverbend Park where concert attendees listened to various genres of music ranging from traditional, to bluegrass, to roots.

The 3-day event allows for concert attendees to camp out near the venue and participate in yoga, wine tasting and kayaking.

Musicians from all over attended the event including one of their headliners, Junior Brown.

"There's something here for everybody. There's an element of Americana that everybody can relate to. It just get's into your bones. You just express it with dance, with joy. It's an excellent way to relax and enjoy nature," said Keith Harris, a concert attendee.

The Bluegrass and Roots Festival surpassed their ticket sales from last year and they plan to continue the tradition next year --which will take place the second weekend of June.
