The summer season in Durango, Colorado closes out with the second weekend of the 2017 Durango Blues Train on August 18 and 19. Tickets for the unique, live music event are set to go on sale Tuesday, March 28th at 10 a.m.

The Blues Train is an exciting 3.5-hour moving experience of live blues on board the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The event features six blues performances on the coal-fired, steam-powered train. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach, while passengers are free to dance their way from coach to coach as the train winds its way through the breathtaking canyons of the San Juan National Forest.

“We’re excited to continue the seven-year legacy of the Blues Train” said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train. “It’s nice to have a second set of train dates to look forward to. We have another top-notch bill of artists set to play this one-of-a-kind event.” 

The Blues Train is comprised of nine passenger cars, a steam-engine locomotive, two full bands, four solo/duo acts and three bars serving light snacks, wine, and craft beer from award-winning regional brewery partners Telluride Brewing Company and Ska Brewing.

The train begins boarding at the historic downtown depot at 6:30 p.m. and departs from the station at 7:00 p.m. The train returns to the Durango train depot at approximately 10:30 p.m.

A variety of accommodations at local hotel partners are available for those looking to stay in town.
