The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is going big in celebration of 16 years as one of Colorado’s premier music festivals. Telluride Blues & Brews is pleased to announce that Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt will be headlining this year’s festival, which runs September 18-20, 2009. In addition to these amazing artists, festival goers will also be treated to sets from BonTaj Roulet, Umphrey’s McGee, Saint Jude and many more.
Telluride Blues & Brews is excited to be a part of the BonTaj Roulet Tour with Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal. Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal, both luminaries of modern blues, are joining forces for their first-ever tour together. The BonTaj Roulet Tour will be a coast-to-coast, 30-date outing in August and September, including an appearance at Telluride Blues & Brews. This show will feature Raitt and Taj on stage alone and together. Raitt, backed by her always-dazzling group, and Taj, with the six-piece, Grammy-winning Phantom Blues Band, will play full sets separately, before closing the night with a collaborative, blow-out performance.
And there are so many other great acts that will be gracing the Telluride Blues & Brews stage, including Jackie Greene, Xavier Rudd, Otis Taylor’s African Orchestra, Jason Ricci & New Blood, Ruthie Foster, Super Chikan and the Fighting Cocks, Ryan Shaw, Carolyn Wonderland, The Lee Boys, JP Soars & the Red Hots, Lukas Nelson & The Promise of The Real and Aftergrass.
