"We are very excited to return for a third year and excited to extend to two-days, giving more people a chance to ride the Blues Train," said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train.

The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival presents the 3rd Annual Durango Blues Train May 31st and June 1, 2013 on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad (D&SNGRR). After selling out in record time for tickets in 2012, this exclusive musical event expands to two days in 2013. This 'moving' experience features six live Blues and Zydeco acts, while passengers travel aboard The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad's coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive through the spectacular and breathtaking canyons of Colorado's San Juan National Forest.

The 2013 Blues Train lineup brings award-winning musical artists Peter Karp and Sue Foley, Lil' Brian & The Zydeco Travelers, Lionel Young, Kirk James, Todd & The Fox, and Low Volts.

Entertainment and favorite libations are peppered with the scenery of the famous train featured in the Hollywood production, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," among others.

The Blues train experience begins at the historic train depot where the steam engine fires up and it's all aboard for an experience of a lifetime. Passengers aboard will experience spectacular and breathtaking canyon views of Colorado's San Juan National Forest as the train winds onto the "Highline," a world famous section of railroad crawling along cliffs high above the Animas River, for an unforgettable musical journey.

Guests can enjoy live Blues and Zydeco with a beer and wine cash bar, and light snacks while riding the rails. Tickets are $95 per person, plus a 6% Historic Train Preservation fee. Tickets are extremely limited and purchasers must be 21 years old to participate.
