Telluride Jazz Festival Set For August

The world-famous mountain town of Telluride, Colorado is ready for the music to keep us dancing in the aisles at the Telluride Jazz Festival. This year's artist lineup features a diverse mix of live jazz, funk, rock, soul, and gospel performances for the August 12-14 festival.

A variety of special events await including interactive artist performances, kids and family activities. Gather your group for late night club shows, and much more will round out the weekend celebration.

"We're really looking forward to this exciting and dynamic lineup showcasing the best in jazz, soul, funk and more," said Patrick Shehan, Director Of Festival Partnerships. "With six GRAMMY nominations in the past two years and a long list of critical acclaim, Yola was a must-have at the festival. She is the best soul singer touring right now hands down. The energy of Cory Wong's live performance is unmatched and an outstanding modern display of jazz and funk. Wong has played giant venues with his band Vulfpeck and we're incredibly lucky to have him in our intimate setting. Telluride loves New Orleans jazz music and Terence Blanchard is one of the cities' most treasured artists, he will fit right in. And I can't forget Colorado's revered funk outfit, The Motet. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Telluride Jazz Festival Main Stage with some special guests for a dance party."
