My VERY FIRST festival of 2017 is Mountain High Music Festival in Mt.Crested Butte Colorado and it is presented by Country Music songwriting Legend Dean Dillon who is known for writing hits for George Strait. This event will be presented to raise funds for some local charities like Tough Enough To Wear Pink Crested Butte and also Adaptive Sports Center. Both organizations offer many activities and programs for their patients to continue normal life with their disabilities, and are wonderful charities to benefit from this celebration of music.
According to the website there all of the music will be performed on the mountain, at the base area and also in the town of Crested Butte. Many of the songwriters will tell stories and mingle with the patrons of the festival and to be honest the experience of that alone is well worth the asking ticket price.
Many of you know how my festival series works with all the different links to information of a different festival every week, this year is no exception. I have over 75 festivals to bring you that have REAL Country Music and Bluegrass, Americana and other genres.
