The 2013 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival lineup: Jim James, the Black Crowes and moreBy Matt Miller | May 1st, 2013 | No Comments »
Organizers of the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival have shared with us the 2013 lineup for the 20th annual celebration of music and beer. This year Jim James, the Black Crowes and Mellissa Etheridge make their way up to the San Juan Mountains to headline the festival. Also on the list to perform at Blues & Brews is Gary Clark Jr., John Hiatt, Otis Taylor Band, ZZ Ward and others.
Last year Phil Lesh & Friends, Gov’t Mule and the B-52′s headlined, which didn’t quite compare to the previous year that included the Flaming Lips and Willie Nelson — a lineup that will be hard to beat. With Jim James added to the lineup in 2013, the six hour drive from Denver to the picturesque Telluride doesn’t seem quite as big of a trip.
The 2013 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival takes place from Sept. 13-15. Tickets for three-day passes are on sale now for $170.
