Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2013: The four greatest moments in 40 years

After 40 years, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival has developed some long-standing traditions: late-night jam sessions, house bands and musicians who have returned for decades. And maybe it’s partly because of this well-loved, established culture that something unexpected happened when tickets went on sale for the 2013 festival: Four-day passes sold out in three hours before a single act had even been announced.

Radio’s eTown, a Boulder stage for James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Buddy Guy, Neko Case even Al Gore

Boulder's eTown Hall has seen a lot of action lately — especially for a venue that's not even officially finished.

While dark, murky skies were a threat from the start of the evening, I thought surely the heavens would smile down on the sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre and let James Taylor work his magic on a warm August night.
