The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival presents the 3rd Annual Durango Blues Train, May 31st and June 1, 2013 on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. After selling out in record time for tickets in 2012, this exclusive musical event expands to two days in 2013. This ‘moving’ experience features six live blues and Zydeco acts, while passengers travel aboard The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad’s coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive through the spectacular and breathtaking canyons of Colorado’s San Juan National Forest.
The 2013 Blues Train lineup brings award-winning music artists Peter Karp and Sue Foley, Lisa Haley & The Zydekats, Lionel Young, Kirk James, Todd & The Fox, and Low Volts on both Friday and Saturday nights. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach car, as passengers are to free to dance, move and sample all the musical acts while traveling from one vintage rail car to next. Entertainment and favorite libations are peppered with the scenery of the famous train featured in the Hollywood production, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," among others.
