The Beat Goes On...



So last evening I got tired and stopped at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. I was tired when I was actually there too. The festival I attended too place in 1995. I was 50 years old and spending time at nearly 10,000 feet when you live at sea level can have unpleasant effect. In spite of what I only later figured out was "altitude sickness", every day I dragged myself up the mountain to the outdoor park where the music was played. There was an incredibly talented bunch of bluegrass players and pickers and I won't list them all here as I posted a pic of the program a while back. But some of the best were:

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Flatt & Scruggs
Government Mule
Alison Krauss
Emmy Lou Harris
Dave Grisman
Bonnie Raitt
