Phil Lesh & Friends, Gov’t Mule, and the B-52s headline the September Festival weekend, with additional festival appearances by Chris Robinson Brotherhood, MarchFourth Marching Band, Tab Benoit, Little Hurricane and The Lee Boys, with more acts to be announced in May. Tickets for the 19th Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, held September 14-16, 2012, are on sale now.
“This year is one of the most eclectic and exciting line-ups in the history of the festival,” said Steve Gumble, Festival Director. “The weekend boasts amazing and legendary musical talent with much more to come!”
Those looking for the inspiration of the current jam band movement need look no further than Phil Lesh. A founding member of the venerable American musical institution, the Grateful Dead, Lesh has continued to inspire while pushing the envelope with his highly evolved musical performances.
For guitarist/lead vocalist Warren Haynes and his band, Gov't Mule, creating a new album is akin to walking a tightrope: they write new songs that please old fans, while hopefully garnering new ones. It's not a surprise their coined one of the hardest working bands in rock history...
It is well known that the B-52s are the World’s Greatest Party Band. And thirty years and over twenty million albums into their career, The B-52s remain among the most beloved rock stars ever. Their performance in Telluride Town Park will be one not to miss, as they serve up their unique blend of music with their combination of rock’n’roll, funk and retro-hip music.
