For a selection of the best in song craftsmanship, look no further than this Colorado festival nestled in the mountains, a sister event to the well-known Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Now in its 20th year, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival attracts singer-songwriters from all over the globe. A smaller Wildflower Pavilion also showcases newer indie artists and hosts in-the-round shows throughout the festival. Early-bird passes have already sold out, so snap up your tickets sooner than later.
