Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2013 day four: Béla Fleck, Infamous Stringdusters and more (photos, review)By Jonathan Gang | June 24th, 2013 | 2 comments
The 2013 Telluride Bluegrass Festival broke records for its ticket sales, selling out its 4-day passes in just hours — all before a single act had been announced. Now weeks later, Reverb has the first wave of acts, which includes the Sam Bush Band, Jackson Browne and Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell.
Jackson Browne’s harem of 15 guitars formed an acoustic corner on the stage of the gracious Paramount Theater last night. Browne explained that the guitars’ presence wasn’t for his own vanity, but for different tunings of each instrument.
“The songs live inside them, like they’re in their little houses. They’re ready in case somebody calls for a song,” he said. “It’s not solely to strike envy into the hearts of guitarists.”
