Lineup (mostly) set for Telluride Blues & Brews

Los Lonely Boys and Keb' Mo' will close two of the three nights at the 14th Telluride Blues and Brews Festival September 14-16, with the third headliner due to be announced before the end of June.

Other big names in a festival that mixes blues, rock, soul, gospel and other styles include Robert Randolph & The Family Band, The Radiators with Bonerama, JJ Grey with Mofro, Joe Bonamassa, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, and more.

In addition to the great music, the festival celebrates microbrewing, with a price-included three-hour "grand tasting" of more than 100 beers from 50 breweries.

Single-day passes go on sale June 1. A three-day pass goes for $150, with extra fees for camping and late-night "juke joint" performances in venues in the town of Telluride. The festival is held in Telluride Town Park, the same location with the same breathtaking views as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

As for the third headliner, it is not unusual for an embargo to be placed on announcing upcoming appearances when an artist is scheduled for earlier performances in the same market. Curious readers might want to look at the lineup of Colorado festivals taking place the weekend of June 21-24 for clues.
