Telluride Blues & Brews Festival | The Rusty Wright Band

The Rusty Wright Band

Saturday, 17th at 10:00 pm (Sheridan Opera House) // Sunday, 18th at 2:30 pm (Blues Stage)

Southern rock, Detroit muscle and a profound passion for vintage blues are hallmarks of the Rusty Wright Band. Wright is recognized as a Master Blues Artist in the International Blues Hall of Fame, and rightly so. His stinging guitar work and the sheer joy he and the band exhibit onstage makes them a must-see. With his wife, singer-guitarist Linda Wright and their new rhythm section of Mark Bumgarner on bass, and drummer Robert Vines, the RWB tours tirelessly, resulting in a well-oiled, blues-dishing machine. It’s work the band undertakes with pleasure. As Rusty says, “Art gives life its real color and it’s that joy that makes it more than just a day-to-day drudge.”
