Telluride – day three

Here is the third photo-report from Jason Lombard, on the ground at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

Elk Park, in downtown Telluride, is a  special place to see and listen to some of the best musicians that are here for the festival. It is a small venue on Main Street, that acts as a second stage, holding workshops, live sets, collaborations, and a great setting.

The shows are free, constant, and amazing. If you are in town for no other reason than to hang out, or get lunch, then you have to make sure to stop by Elk Park. You will most likely be pleasantly surprised by some music that you might not have expected.

I had the amazing opportunity to attend a screening of the new documentary film, How to Grow a Band, and it was awesome. It’s a film by Mark Meatto that follows the Punch Brothers and Chris Thile through their rootsy, edgy beginning. If you find the chance to see this, go!

Well, Old Crow Medicine Show just finished their set, and it was rockin’. Another day at Telluride has come to an end and I am feeling it.

WOW! Robert Plant, Darrell Scott, Punch Brothers, Mumford, all perform Sunday. I hope you are enjoying the photos. More to come.
