Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Next Thursday, June 17th, 10,000 fans of American acoustic bluegrass and roots music will make the annual pilgrimage to the little mountain town of Telluride, Colorado for four days of the 37th Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival. The festival is so unique and definitive it is simply known as “Bluegrass.“

The 2010 Telluride Bluegrass Festival lineup is a showcase of some of the biggest names in American traditional and roots music including superstars such as Alison Krauss & Union Station, Dave Rawlings Machine featuring Gillian Welch, Brandi Carlile, and Lyle Lovett. Staples of the festival are the Sam Bush Band, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien Band, and Peter Rowan & Crucial Country. Yonder Mountain String Band will be celebrating their 11th year, and Leftover Salmon will be celebrating their 20th year as a band. Other highlights on the lineup are sure to be the Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile, Hot Rize, and Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band.

Music lovers are not just treated to music all day on the main stage. There are intimate workshops on the Elks Park stage in the middle of town, late-night Nightgrass shows at bunch of indoor venues in town, as well as jam sessions that last through the nights in the various campgrounds set up throughout town.

Festivarians, as they are known, can also feed their hunger for mountain activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and fly-fishing. It’s not only a music festival; it’s a celebration of mountain living and sustainability.

17th Annual Telluride Blues and Brews Festival

Serving up one last chance to extend the summer, the 17th Annual Telluride Blues and Brews Festival offered world class music and craft beer in a picturesque mountain setting this past weekend. We headed to Town Park to check out the festivities. Telluride Blues and Brews Festival provides the kind of funky, laid back attitude that can only be found in Telluride. At 8,750 feet above sea level, the historic mining town has long been considered the quintessential Colorado concert experience and we would have to agree.

The men's podium included Travis Wolfe from Telluride, Whit Boucher from Vail, and Connery Lundin from Squaw Valley. For full results, click here.
