Lest you missed last week’s Outside Magazine Article ranking Colorado Springs the #1 City in America, please allow us to point out the fact that the KRCC-sponsored first-annual Meadowgrass Festival at La Foret was one of the notable factors:

The city is experiencing something of a cultural resurgence, too. Colorado College’s ten-month-old, $33 million performing-arts center has begun drawing national classical music and dance groups, and this year the city launched its own roots-and-blues festival, Meadowgrass.

Gladly for you, if you missed it, Mr. Jeff Bieri will be replaying their entire amazing set today (Weds., Aug. 5) at 1 p.m. on KRCC and you’ll have a chance to win this beautiful Meadowgrass Poster created by local printer Colin Frazer and signed by all the band members. On top of all that, here’s a one-song sample from Meadowgrass you can stream to whet your ear buds. “Hammer Down”:
