The annual Red, White & Blues Celebration, traditionally held on July 3, will expand to two days with the addition of July 4. The now two-day event is set in the panoramic San Juan Mountains in Telluride Mountain Village and offers music, children’s events, merchant discounts, food and drink specials, and much more.

“What a treat for the Mountain Village Community and surrounding residents to get two days of fun and quality music that is free! And stayed tuned for the announcement of the 20th Anniversary of the Sunset Concert Series in May. More fun and free music to come!” said Teddy Errico, producer.

Along with the music, each day will feature children’s activities and entertainment from 1 to 5 p.m. in a family-friendly atmosphere.

The Red, White & Blues Celebration Concert will kick off with gospel and blues singer Paul Thorn, whose songwriting combines wry observations with blues, country and rock. With onstage banter that bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Mitch Hedberg, Thorn’s live shows are must-see and his albums, over a dozen since 1997, are full of gems.

Starting off the show will be Boulder, Colorado’s Foxfeather, an Alt-Americana sound bolstered by strong blues-rock.

On July 4, talented trombonist and New Orleans native, Glen David Andrews, brings his funk, soul, gospel and rock sound with a powerful new project that correlates his reclaimed life to his reclaimed home town of New Orleans.

Rounding out the day of music will be Dave Jordan and the NIA, also from New Orleans and Telluride’s own Porch Couch.

“TMVOA is excited to expand our mainstay Red, White & Blues event from one to two days with more music, events and kids activities in Mountain Village,” said Heidi Stenhammer, TMVOA Operations Manager. “We look forward to having our members, guests and visitors attend this entertaining holiday event.”

The Red, White & Blues Celebration is provided to the public free of charge by TMVOA and The Telluride Society for Music. This event, along with the Sunset Concert Series, is sponsored by Alpine Bank, Madeline Hotel and Residences, Rodney Strong Vineyards, KOTO FM Radio, Telluride Resort Lodging, Telluride Ski & Golf, the Town of Mountain Village, The Peaks Resort & Spa, Telluride Express, and The Market at Mountain Village.


Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet relatable music of our time. With 20 years of writing, touring, and entertaining under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down with his new record, Don’t Let the Devil Ride, on the horizon. For more information, visit


In a city whose spirit world is as old as Mother Africa’s children, Glen David Andrews, a native son of New Orleans, has made a compelling case for own deliverance with a powerful new project that correlates his reclaimed life in his reclaimed city. Recorded at the Living Room, a converted church on the West Bank, in Algiers, just outside of New Orleans in November 2013, Redemption is Andrews’s balm after a very personal storm. The music is about ghosts and their residual energy; about acceptance and forgiveness; about rebirth and renewal.

“Every song on this record tells a story that I hope people will relate to,” the singer, songwriter and trombonist says proudly. “This is a record about my journey back from the living dead.”

Situated in the heart of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, Mountain Village was incorporated in 1995 as a home rule municipality. Its founders envisioned a European-style ski-in/ski-out, pedestrian-friendly destination resort that would complement the historic mining town of Telluride. A three-stage gondola transportation system connects the Town of Mountain Village with the Town of Telluride. Situated at 9,500 feet, Mountain Village is comparably a world apart from other resorts. It is beautifullya orchestrated and planned community, overflowing with style, charm, and sophistication.
