Here's a video from last year's festival:

"We are truly looking forward to celebrating our 20th year in Telluride," said Steve Gumble, Festival Director. "I look back fondly over the years, growing from a small four hour beer tasting with twenty brews and a handful of people, into a three day music festival with 150 different beers, thousands of thirsty fans, and artists like The Black Crowes and Melissa Etheridge. I have to pinch myself! "

Kicking off the 2013 festival are the Black Crowes, who have assembled a mighty band for this year's Lay Down With Number 13 tour. In addition to the brothers Robinson on vocals and guitar, they'll have Steve Gorman on drums, and longtime bassist Sven Pipien on board. Blues & Brews fans will remember keyboardist Adam MacDougall's unbelievable performance with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood in 2012. Blues & Brews regulars will also be delighted to welcome back festival favorite, Jackie Greene, who will play with the Crowes on guitar and vocals.

Singer/songwriter Jim James has spent the better part of almost two decades as the lead singer and songwriter for My Morning Jacket. Based on a diverse outpouring of studio albums and live shows that leave fans breathless, My Morning Jacket has grown into one of the most acclaimed rock and roll bands in the world. James' debut solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, showcases his soulful songwriting, his captivating voice, and his talents as both a producer and engineer. Maybe lesser known to our veteran festival followers, this performance is not one to miss!

The critically-acclaimed songwriter Melissa Etheridge headlines the final day of the festival this year. Etheridge is touring in support of her 12th record, 4th Street Feeling, a musical look back at her Kansas roots. Known for her killer guitar playing, she plays all the guitar parts on the new record and the songs display all the deep confidence and wisdom of someone who has lived her life to its fullest. We are happy to welcome Etheridge to Telluride for he first appearance in our box canyon.
