Telluride Bluegrass Festival

The Telluride Bluegrass Festival is a unique mix of music, comedy, circus and the great outdoors of Colorado. This year the artists performing include Jim James, Kacey Musgraves and the Sam Bush Band.

The Bluegrass music at the heart of this festival is a sub-genre of country music, with a bit of folk and blues mixed into it, whilst Telluride is a former mining town in a box canyon in the Rocky Mountains. A mix of established artists and new acts, hoping to make their mark, perform over the four days.
