September 13th – 15th | Telluride Blues Festival | Telluride, CO

Renowned as one of the most scenic and intimate music festivals in the country, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is located in the world-famous mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. The multi-stage celebration of music and craft beer offers an eclectic mix of live blues, funk, indie, rock, jam-band, gospel, and soul performances accompanied by some of the best craft breweries in the country. This year, four Music Maker partner artists will perform at the nation’s premier blues festival.

When festival organizer Steve Gumble met Music Makers’ Timothy Duffy, the pair bonded over a shared appreciation of America’s musical traditions and of the Foundation’s mission. Gumble and Duffy first teamed up in 2015 to bring artists from the Music Maker roster to Telluride. These artists deliver genuine blues, gospel, and soul sets giving festival attendees a rare look at traditional American music culture. Presented by Telluride Express, the Music Maker Drink House at the Blues Stage will give you a glimpse into authentic blues culture. In addition to the Drink House, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is hosting a special fundraising dinner to benefit Music Maker.

The Drink House features:

• Original art exhibition and tintype photography shot by Music Maker co-founder Timothy Duffy.

• Listening stations with original vinyl records. Bring a friend and use the dual headphones to sample classics from the blues genre and discover new and up-and-coming artists.

• Artist meet-and-greets from the Music Maker roster. Shake hands, ask questions and learn more about the artists that make this great organization.

• A photo booth to commemorate the experience.
