When it comes to Telluride Blues & Brews festival, what’s not to love? Boasting an impressive roster of veteran performers alongside an equally impressive roster of craft beers all against a beautiful mountainous background, we kind of wished the weekend could last forever. Fortunately, we were able to take a piece of the festival home with us. We teamed up with Colorado Yurt to record a few sessions in their homey and uniquely welcoming yurts during the festival.
ZZ Ward was the first to grace the yurt with a performance, providing soulful vocals and bluesy tunes that seemed to capture what the festival is all about. Watch Ward perform “Put Down the Gun” live in the yurt at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Like what you hear? Check out more sessions from the festival recorded by our friends at Jam in the Van.
