We sat down to talk with 2018 Telluride Blues Challenge Alex Paul! Alex is a longtime Southwest Colorado resident and was one of the first locals to ever win the Challenge. With a diverse repertoire of covers and original material and a contagious energy to his live performance, Alex draws listeners into his musical world.
The “Wow!” factor is real as we introduce you to the Keeshea Pratt band, the 2018 International Blues Challenge winners. Watch as they kick off the day with an inspired performance of the title track from their debut album, “Believe”, to a captive crowd on a beautiful Saturday morning.
Having Denver’s Dragondeer kick off the Main Stage festivities was the best reminder that this is a blues-loving festival. Watch as they pay homage to legendary artist, Junior Wells, through a rendition of his classic song "Messin' With The Kid" on a perfect sunny Colorado day live from Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
The Telluride Jazz Festival returns for its 41st year on August 4-6, 2017 with a fresh look to usher in a new era for the Festival in the world-famous mountain town of Telluride, Colorado.
