Be sure to check us out at the Durango Blues Train on Friday, August 22nd.The Durango Blues Train is the premier blues experience in the 4 Corners area. Nothing beats the sound of a smokin' slide guitar and sultry blues lyrics combined swagger of the narrow gauge steel rails humming beneath your feet.....except, of course, if you add in microbrews and a searing harmonica! This is the ultimate blues venue and we are honored to represent our hometown! The One Roof Blues trio of Taylor LaRocco, Dave LaRocco, and Randy Hays will be playing an acoustic/electric set of original and traditional blues tunes.......everything from acoustic delta, hill country blues to jumpin' barrelhouse jammin' blues! This is one train you don't want to miss! Telluride Brewing Company is the official beer sponsor, so don't worry....you won't go dry! We will be joined by many other great blues acts including Mathew Curry, C.W. Ayon, Leon J, Scotty Spenner, and Franco Paletta. The train boards at 6:30 and departs at 7pm.
