Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy, Bonnie Raitt Headline Telluride Blues & Brews

The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is pulling out all the stops in celebration of 16 years as one of Colorado’s premier music festivals.  Telluride Blues & Brews is pleased to announce that Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt will be headlining this year’s festival, which runs September 18-20, 2009.  In addition to these amazing artists, festival goers will also be treated to sets from BonTaj Roulet, Umphrey’s McGee, Saint Jude and many more.

 Telluride Blues & Brews is excited to be a part of the BonTaj Roulet Tour with Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal.  Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal, both luminaries of modern blues, are joining forces for their first-ever tour together. The BonTaj Roulet Tour will be a coast-to-coast, 30-date outing in August and September, including an appearance at Telluride Blues & Brews.  This show will feature Raitt and Taj on stage alone and together. Raitt, backed by her always-dazzling group, and Taj, with the six-piece, Grammy-winning Phantom Blues Band, will play full sets separately, before closing the night with a collaborative, blow-out performance.

 Blues & Brews is proud to be bringing the legendary Buddy Guy back to Telluride!  Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has received five Grammy Awards, 23 W.C. Handy Blues Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Today, Guy and his music remain as vital as ever.  His 2008 release of Skin Deep, an album of all original material, featured guest appearances from fellow guitar wizards Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, adding yet another dimension to this master’s legendary career.
