The Telluride Blues & Brews Reception & Free Film "Song of the South: Duane Allman & The Rise of the Allman Brothers Band" - a fundraiser for The San Miguel Resource Center (SMRC) on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016.
Start your mornings off proper with blues music, a hearty breakfast and drinks at Blues for Breakfast! Kicking off at 9:00 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday of the Festival weekend, Blues for Breakfast offers a pleasant warm-up to a dynamic day and late night full of music. Join us at the Telluride's intimate Elks Lodge (located at 472 West Pacific Avenue), for a bite to eat as the first official chords of the day are struck.
The Blues Stage is our second festival stage. This indoor stage is located in the Town Park Hanley Pavilion adjacent to the main festival stage. The Blues Stage features additional musical performances and comedy sets. Enjoy comfortable, theatre-style chairs to give your legs a rest, a large dance floor and a full bar with beer, wine and cocktails all under one roof. Take our word for it, it's about as good as it gets!
Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is thrilled to partner with the Music Maker Relief Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, to contribute to their endeavors to preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it, ensuring their voices will not be silenced by poverty and time. Music Maker will give future generations access to their heritage through documentation and performance programs that build knowledge and appreciation of America's musical traditions.
The artist behind the 2016 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival poster is Katie Lin. Katie spends her days painting all over the city of New Orleans. Her artwork is made up of vibrant colors depicting lively, urban jazz scenes. Music is a common theme that always seems to find it's way into Lin's pieces, from sidewalks made out of piano keys to geometric guitars woven into her abstract art.
Durango Blues Train is taking over Telluride Blues & Brews Festival's Instagram this Friday through Sunday, August 5th - 7th, with an insider preview of the last two Blues Trains this summer happening on August 12th and 13th.
