“We’re really looking forward to this exciting and dynamic lineup showcasing the best in jazz, soul, funk and more,” said Patrick Shehan, Director Of Festival Partnerships. “With six GRAMMY nominations in the past two years and a long list of critical acclaim, Yola was a must-have at the festival. She is the best soul singer touring right now hands down. The energy of Cory Wong’s live performance is unmatched and an outstanding modern display of jazz and funk. Wong has played giant venues with his band Vulfpeck and we’re incredibly lucky to have him in our intimate setting. Telluride loves New Orleans jazz music and Terence Blanchard is one of the cities’ most treasured artists, he will fit right in. And I can’t forget Colorado’s revered funk outfit, The Motet. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Telluride Jazz Festival Main Stage with some special guests for a dance party.”

Telluride Town Park is renowned as one of America’s most scenic and spectacular live music venues. Nestled among the aspen trees and surrounded by 13,000 foot mountain peaks, festival artists will perform on the state-of-the-art Main Stage. A secondary stage, “Society Stage”, free of admission, will host weekend programming including interactive artist and student band performances in the center of Telluride. The intimate performances on the “Society Stage” aim to further the mission of Telluride Society for Jazz to provide student music education.

In addition, luxurious VIP and Patron Festival Experiences offer elevated culinary and cocktail aspects to the weekend. A fleet of special events round out the festival with free yoga sessions, morning jam collaborations, a free historical walking tour, cozy late night shows and more.
