The complete list of announced artists is included below.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the artists on this year’s lineup. Steve Winwood has always been on my Blues & Brews bucket list. When I heard about the TajMo collaboration between Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’, I knew it was a perfect fit for the festival” said Steve Gumble, festival founder and director. “It’s not too often that you get to see two blues legends with a full band play a set together. As always, we are thrilled to have Bonnie Raitt playing in Telluride again this year. With 20 albums, 10 Grammys, and an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, we’re truly honored to welcome Bonnie back to the mountains. When all these artists are placed on one bill, it forms a really well-rounded, powerful and inspiring music festival. Fifty-six craft breweries is just icing on the cake!”
At Telluride Blues & Brews, artists will perform on three stages surrounded by a backdrop of 13,000-foot peaks just 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 get to enjoy an assortment of special events throughout the festival weekend including the “Blisters & Brews” 5k fundraiser race, free yoga sessions taught by instructors from the Telluride Yoga Festival, the Telluride Blues Challenge, Campground Sessions, and the Sunset Blues Concert.
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 16, noon – 3 p.m. Official festival beer sponsor, 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” (only available at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival).
