SUMMER FEST UPDATES: Telluride Bluegrass Fest and Jazz Fest Add to Line-up

Fest Update Post

It's true. There are a few more weeks left in the winter ski season at the Telluride Ski Resort. But with warmer weather sneaking in with spring skiing, summer festival season is on the mind at Visit Telluride!

It's not just the warmer weather that has brought the thought of sun dresses, flip-flops, cold beer and amazing music to mind. Both Telluride Jazz Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival have announced additional line-ups. 

Bluegrass Heaven Announces Final Line-up:

Opening the summer music season June 19-22nd, The 41st Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival released their full line-up today with final additions including Steve Winwood, Ray Lamontagne, Alison Kraus and Del McCoury

The final line-up includes long-time favorites like Sam Bush, Bela Fleck as well as up-and-coming groups such as The Lone Bellow, Chatham County Line and Front Country, last year's Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition winners. 

Additionally, much beloved band Nickel Creek will be playing on Thursday as a closing performance for their 2014 reunion tour. Read more about this group here

Check-out this NPR Tiny Desk Concert with Brandi Carlile, who will be performing Thursday (and is a Visit Telluride staff member favorite!)

Telluride is lucky enough to have a robust mix of festivals based around different genres giving festivarians of all tastes something to listen to. Not into the bluegrass scene? Telluride Jazz Festival is sure to please!
