Basalt: Wild Mountain @ Willits Town Center | Wednesday, July 19, 2017 | 6:00 PM
Basalt Summer Concert Series is hopping! Head on over to Willits Town Center/Triangle Park and listen to bluegrass band, Wild Mountain. The concern is FREE so just bring your blanky and picnic basket and hang out and hear some tunes. Starting in August, this changes to Basalt Lions Park!
Wild Mountain is a six-piece folk rock band out of Colorado, mixing Celtic-Irish melodies and rhythms with American heartland Bluegrass music. They are currently touring throughout the United States performing their special blend of “Greengrass” music at festivals, theaters, venues, private parties, and town concert series. The band’s dynamic live “Greengrass” performances appeal to the Celtic heart and Bluegrass soul of both young and old alike.
Aspen: Bluegrass Sundays @ Sundeck | NOON - 3 PM
Sunday, July 23 will feature the Rattlesnakes. Take the gondola up and enjoy the views, great music and good people watching! Guaranteed to have a great time! Plenty of seating, hoola hoops, and food.
If you have not gone out and tried fly fishing in this valley - it is a MUST! The quietness of it is amazing and since you are among the best rivers in the country, it will be an amazing experience. There are shops all over the valley from Aspen - Glenwood, but I highly recommend Crystal Fly Shop 1087 Highway 133 in Carbondale. They have waders, license, shoes- everything there, so just bring yourself and your wallet. Choose from plenty of guided trips and experience all of the local gems with your private angler. From what I can gather, they have a partnership with the Crystal River Conservancy and have access to some great spots that otherwise is deemed as off limits. Besides wading, they also offer float trips - you pick what’s right for you!
