Craig Ferguson, local Telluride festival promoter states, “I believe Neil is the artist Telluride has been most wanting to see,” and Michael Bialas, journalist for the Huffington post adds,” Who ought to know since he’s the man largely responsible for booking legendary acts in this scenic setting at 8,750 feet. He and his Planet Bluegrass team have tried to get Young to Telluride for the past 25 years.”

THE SWEET PAIRING

Sharon Jones is a cancer survivor making one hell of a comeback as she travels the country inspiring festival-goers all over. On Saturday, grab yourself a Harvest Apple Hard Cider from Big B’s Famous Juices & Ciders and pair that big band feel with big bold flavors. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will deliver their token sweet soul hooks while you sip your sweet cider.

THE LEGENDARY PAIRING

On Friday night, make your way to the main stage with a Telluride Brewing Co. Face Down Brown Ale in hand. A dark beer that’s won numerous awards for its taste only seems right when paired with the legendary artists of ZZ Top. Two powerhouses in their own fields will take that Texas blues-rock to new levels.

THE COUNTRY BLUES PAIRING

The last pairing we strongly recommend is the Crazy Mountain Brewery’s Old Soul as you rock out to Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman. The southern feel of this beer paired with Allman’s classic country blues will create the ultimate experience for fans.
