Black Crowes fill out Telluride Blues & Brews lineup

With one big Telluride festival, Bluegrass, in the books after Sunday night, the attention turns to another big Telluride festival, Blues & Brews, coming up September 14-16. And now that, across state, also Sunday night, The Black Crowes are closing the festival at Jazz Aspen Snowmass, it is okay for Telluride Blues & Brews (TBB) to unveil the last piece of its lineup.

Yup, it's The Black Crowes, who played a killer show at TBB in 2005, shortly after the band had reunited following a five-year hiatus. The Crowes had been one of the biggest rock acts of the 1990s, with a string of top 10 hits and sales of 19 million records.

2007 is the 14th year for the festival, which began as a celebration of Colorado craft beers and has grown to become a world-class event. The festival is held at Town Park in the Rocky Mountain resort community, as well as at various clubs and stages around town.

Besides The Crowes, the main-stage closers at TBB are Los Lonely Boys and the Keb Mo Band. Also on the bill: Robert Randolph, Grace Potter, The Radiators with Bonerama, and much more. When the main stage closes, the action shifts to the late-night "juke joints," jams and dances.
