Details are just starting to emerge on a new series of Bluegrass concerts scheduled for Lionshead this summer.

The Vail Town Council approved $50,000 in funding for the event which will take place on Wednesday nights.

While the series will be on Wednesdays, supporters of the festival on the council said bluegrass fans they know are willing to travel to see their favorite performers. THe event is on a tight one year trail run and the only performers name to emerge thus far is legendary Sam Bush.

Concert series promoter Ariel Rosenberg said he plans to bring some of those favorites to Vail. The most notable name he mentioned was Bush, a renowned mandolin player and former member of the legendary Newgrass Revival. Bush is also known as the “King of Telluride” for his almost-annual appearances at that town’s bluegrass festival.
