2019 Artist Lineup Announcement
As September 13-15 inches just a bit closer, the 26th Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival reveals its 2019 artist lineup. The festival returns with a dynamic, well-rounded mix of live blues, funk, indie, rock, jam band, gospel and soul performances featuring Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Boz Scaggs, Anders Osborne, Ryan Bingham, Tab Benoit and many more.

"Back for our 26th year, the artist lineup is dynamic as ever, but rooted in what the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is all about! There is incredible musical talent from top to bottom on this one!" said Festival Director and Founder Steve Gumble. "To have the legendary Phil Lesh back and this time, with the renowned Terrapin Family Band, is incredibly special and will be a spectacular show. Boz Scaggs has been a household name for decades and his new blues album is a masterpiece - it really made perfect sense for us to bring him to Telluride for the first time. As always, I'm thrilled to welcome back festival favorites Anders Osborne, Samantha Fish and Tab Benoit, along with some current soul, blues and rock artists like Cedric Burnside and Durand Jones & the Indications. I can't forget to mention all of the traditional blues and gospel artists from the Music Maker Relief Foundation. This September, you're not going to want to miss a single set!"
Artists will perform on three stages under towering 13,000 foot Rocky Mountain peaks as the fall foliage season begins to brighten the landscape. To complement the music, the festival proudly boasts a wide variety of local and regional food and craft vendors, children's activities and cozy late night club shows (Juke Joints). In addition, attendees can enjoy an assortment of special events throughout the festival weekend including the “Blisters & Brews” 5k fundraiser race, free Yoga Sessions, the Telluride Blues Challenge, Campground Sessions and the Sunset Blues Concert. Additional artists and stand-up comedians will be announced in the coming weeks.
Honoring its craft beer roots, the festival uncorks an equally impressive and diverse collection of 56 craft breweries boasting 170 styles of craft beer and cider at the festival’s Grand Tasting. Highly regarded as one of the premier beer tasting events in the Southwest, the Grand Tasting takes place inside the festival grounds on Saturday, September 14 from Noon to 3 pm. Official craft beer partner Sierra Nevada Brewing Company will also be on hand with a bevy of favorites including classics and rare creations such as the “Back Porch Lager”, a one-of-a-kind beer which can only be found at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
