Telluride Blues & Brew Festival is Back!
The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is Back!
It is the greatest way to end the summer, hands down.Ã‚Â Located in one of the most gorgeous spots in the United States, Telluride rests in a box canyon at 8,750 feet, surrounded by dramatic walls of mountain.Ã‚Â
There are some serious blues coming to the 15th Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, which will be held September 12-14, 2008, with Sunday headliner Etta James and the Roots Band.Ã‚Â Leading up to her are three days packed with some the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best blues, from Joan Osborne, Back Door Slam, GovÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Mule, John Hiatt, Susan Tedeschi, Canned Heat, Big SamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Funky Nation, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Reverend PeytonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Big Damn BandÃ¢â‚¬Â¦..oh, ah, ugh!Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worry about overloading, though.Ã‚Â At the same time as all this amazing music is going on, you can pace yourself with some delicious beer.Ã‚Â Then thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the Grand Tasting on Saturday, with more then 150 different beers from 56 microbreweriesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦FREE TO TICKETHOLDERS.Ã‚Â Yes.Ã‚Â You walk onto the grounds, they hand you a glass, and you have three hours to taste as many different beers as you can.Ã‚Â By the 2nd hour, people speak in wonderful new languages.Ã‚Â ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like a religious experience, but with better music!
