For the last 44 years, Telluride Bluegrass Festival has brought the best and brightest to Telluride, CO, reveling in the majesty that is folk and bluegrass music. This year’s 45th annual lineup is no exception, as many favorites, both old and new, will return to the festival once more on June 21-24, 2018.

Today, Telluride Bluegrass announces the complete single-day breakdowns, in addition to seven impressive lineup additions. Leading the new additions is Grammy-winning 12-piece Americana soul all-stars Tedeschi Trucks Band, along with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (making their first Telluride Bluegrass appearance in 15 years), innovative banjo and classical string quartet Béla Fleck & Brooklyn Rider, seven-piece Finnish fiddle band Frigg, “sophisticated bluegrass-pop” band The Railsplitters, Americana sextet Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers, and Australian folk-pop trio The Maes. These newly added acts will join previously announced performers like Sam Bush Band, Sturgill Simpson, The Del McCoury Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, The Wood Brothers, and Emmylou Harris.

There will also be a set from the Telluride House Band featuring Sam, Béla, Jerry, Edgar, Bryan & Stuart, a special “Live From Here” with Chris Thile (live broadcast), and performances by Leftover Salmon, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, I’m With Her: Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz & Aoife O’Donovan, as well as Tim O’Brien Band, The Jerry Douglas Band, Punch Brothers, Edgar Meyer & Christian McBride, The Infamous Stringdusters, Chris Thile, Billy Strings, Peter Rowan & the Free Mexican Air Force featuring Flaco Jimenez, and many more .
