A history of the concerts of the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad

From humble beginnings in 2007 with a makeshift stage and one artist our concerts have grown to our one-of-a-kind boxcar stage and our large scale summer-long series of nationally known acts featured today.

The idea for a concert began when President Ed Ellis and country western artist Michael Martin Murphey

“I’ve always gone out of my way to perform Cowboy Music outdoors on the mountains and prairies- and I love trains !” Murphey said. ” I befriended Rio Grande Scenic Railroad President, Ed Ellis and worked with him four years, to create a log-sided permanent stage, Western-style food service and amphitheater with a 360 degree mountain view. Our mutual vision was to present music for the whole family – with an emphasis on Western, Country, Bluegrass and Folk. In ’09 I introduced Ed Ellis to an ‘off-the-grid’ wind and solar company. I serve as “Green Cowboy” spokesman- Earth-Tech Energy Systems.”
