Telluride’s bluegrass festival is just around the corner. So, what’s playing on Stella Blue today?
The Festival Tapes, recorded live in Telluride June 25-26, 1977.
I found this epically amazing album after digging for hours at Counterpoint. If you are new to my blog, or native to the Gunnison Valley, Counterpoint is my all time favorite record store in the Los Feliz neighborhood of L.A. Once you get past the stench of hipster, and apparent air of disapproval, you can get to work unearthing gems like this one.
Fiddle on friends! If you went to the festival this year, feel free to leave a fun story about it in the comments. Chris Thile is playing up a frenzy, so enjoy the heck out of it!
