Taking place September 17-19, the 27th Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival reveals its 2021 artist lineup. The festival returns with a dynamic, well-rounded mix of live blues, funk, indie, rock, jam band, gospel and soul performances featuring Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Buddy Guy, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Larkin Poe and many more. The complete list of announced artists is included below.
“Looking at the decades of lineups from the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, this year’s lineup stands to be one of the most progressive and forward looking, while still being anchored by blues fixtures,” said Steve Gumble, Festival Director and Founder. “Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is an artist that defines this generation of blues, rock and soul music, while groups like Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Larkin Poe and Samantha Fish are primed to define the next. Legendary icons like Buddy Guy and Anders Osborne will showcase the finest of the blues craft, along with a traditional display of American roots music from the unsung legends from the Music Maker Relief Foundation artist roster. We’re in for a dynamic weekend of live music and I’m really looking forward to it!”
Artists will perform on three stages under towering 13,000-foot Rocky Mountain peaks as the fall foliage season begins to brighten the landscape. To complement the music, the festival proudly boasts a wide variety of local and regional food and craft vendors, and cozy late night club shows. In addition, attendees can enjoy an assortment of special events throughout the festival weekend including the free Yoga Sessions and the Sunset Blues Concert.
Additional artists and the stand-up comedy lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.
