The Scoop

Boasting days of continuous live music and microbrew tastings against a backdrop of spectacular peaks, the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival has remained one of Colorado’s most-popular festivals for 20 years. 

When B.B. King performed in 2004, he sat on the small, wooden stage in Telluride Town Park, looked out at the San Juans and told the crowd, "Out of the 90 different countries I've been to, I've never seen anything more beautiful than what you have here."
