“It’s impossible to look at the last 50 years of American rock and revival music and not see the name John Fogerty written all over it. He founded one of the best rock bands of all-time (Creedence Clearwater Revival) and has written some of the most recognizable songs around,” said Festival Director and Founder Steve Gumble. “Fogerty and his band show no signs of slowing down and we can’t wait for their memorable and high-energy set. We’ve also added some outstanding core blues artists including the foot-stomping, International Blues Challenge winner Ms. Hy-C & Fresh Start; guitar-shredding Joanna Connor Band; along with a few more. This year’s stand-up comedy lineup is stronger than ever featuring five side-splitters including NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’ finalist Debra DiGiovanni.”

Artists will perform on three stages under¬† majestic Rocky Mountain peaks just as the fall foliage season begins to brighten the landscape. To complement the music, Telluride Blues & Brews proudly boasts a wide variety of local and regional food and craft vendors, children’s activities and cozy late-night club shows (Juke Joints).

In addition, attendees can enjoy an assortment of special events throughout the festival weekend including the “Blisters & Brews” 5k fundraiser race, free Yoga, the Telluride Blues Challenge, Campground Sessions and the Sunset Blues Concert.
