Each year in Telluride, Colorado, music lovers gather to hear their favorite artists bring the sound of timeless bluegrass music to their ears. A subgenre of country music, bluegrass has its roots not only in songs that originally came from those living in the Appalachian Mountains, but also in the Celtic, African and jazz traditions. Often times, many different instruments will appear within a given tune so aficionados of bluegrass will hear everything from a fiddle to a banjo with a harmonica making an occasional appearance. Popularized by pioneers like Bill Monroe as well as the duo of Flatt & Scruggs, bluegrass has evolved over the years and has itself spawned several subgenres. Traditional bluegrass focuses primarily on folk songs with acoustical accompaniment only. Progressive bluegrass artists incorporate electrical instruments in addition to elements of the rock and roll musical style into the songs. Bluegrass gospel utilizes Christian related themes and lyrics in soulful harmonies, sometimes omitting instruments altogether. Neo-traditional bluegrass, which may have more than one lead singer accompanied by a band, is the most recent type of bluegrass and only a few decades old. Whatever style you might enjoy, be assured that the Telluride Bluegrass Festival has something for you. Prior performers have included such musical legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, John Fogerty, Willie Nelson, Robert Plant, Mumford & Sons and the Dixie Chicks. Who will be there this year?
