Telluride’s 35th annual Bluegrass Festival (technically the “Bluegrass and Country Music Festival”) took place Thursday through Sunday last week at Telluride Town Park, uniting a host of folk, rock, country and roots performers like Ricky Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (a.k.a. The Swell Season), Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Yonder Mountain String Band and many others.

The festival is renowned for its gorgeous mountain setting and smart, adventurous audiences — although we understand if you weren’t able to make it over from the Front Range last week (gas prices are killer, yes?) Luckily, contributing photographer Nathan Rist caught all the crunchy, high-altitude action. Check out his photo essay below.

The performers, in order, are Ani DiFranco, Arlo Guthrie, Bela Fleck, Cadillac Sky, Chris Thile, Del McCoury, Drew Emmit, Hot Rize, Jerry Douglas, John Cowan, Leftover Salmon, Luke Bulla, Nick Forster, Paolo Nutini, Peter Rowan, Ricky Skaggs, Ryan Adams, Sam Bush, the Swell Season, the Telluride House Band, the Duhks, the Frames, Tift Merritt, Uncle Earl, Vince Herman and Yonder Mountain String Band.
