Durango Blues Train: Second Weekend Announced

Due to popular demand and a sold-out June event, the 6th annual Durango Blues Train is pleased to announce a second weekend of live blues, Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13, aboard the historic, 100+-year-old, coal-fired, steam-powered Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Presented by SBG Productions and the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival this unique live music experience features musicians performing in vintage coach cars. Passengers are free to sample each act by movin’ and groovin’ from one rail car to next. Tickets will be available soon and the artist lineup will be revealed in the coming weeks.

“We’re thrilled to continue the Blues Train in its sixth year aboard the historic railroad,” said Steve Gumble, founder, Durango Blues Train.

An evening on the Blues Train is a musical journey in history featuring four solo and duo acts plus two full bands, each offering an intimate concert aboard the train. En route, passengers also get to experience the breathtaking views of the San Juan National Forest including the “Highline,” a world-famous section of railroad that crawls along the cliffs high above the Animas River. The musical adventure also features light snacks and beverages (wine and beer) from sponsors Telluride Brewing Company and Ska Brewing.

Tickets are $95 per person per night, plus a 7% Historic Train Preservation fee. Tickets are extremely limited and will sell out in advance. Purchasers must be 21 years old to participate. Tickets will be available online in the coming weeks.

For those looking to stay near the train depot, an assortment of lodging selections (at local hotel partners) are available. To view all accommodation options, please click here.
