Festival goers can also look forward to the return of stand-up comedy performances, which turn up the volume on Festival fun and games.
Comedians Ben Gleib, Troy Walker, Alex Edelman, and John Novosad join the 2017 lineup for shows on the Festival’s Blues Stage, plus, ahem, “dirty shows” during the night-time Juke Joint series.
In addition, performance painter Keith “Scramble” Campbell returns for his sixth consecutive year of live painting at the Festival. Campbell captures the energy and vibe of live music through his colorful, spirited images. He is scheduled to paint in front of the Main Stage all weekend long.
“Every year, I look to put together an eclectic line-up, one that stands out on the long list of festivals, says Steve Gumble, President of SBG Productions. “There are so many festivals out there, and quite often their line-ups start to look very similar. I really enjoy combining iconic musicians with young and talented artists to create a festival bill that appeals to both younger generations and more mature fans. Telluride Blues & Brews is for the whole family. I’m honored to be able to continue to bring incredible music and more to one of the most beautiful venues in the world.”
Daily schedules for the Main Stage, Blues Stage, Campground Stage, and late-night Juke Joints are to be released June 7, 2017.
