Hey, Matt...let's touch base on Telluride, bud.   How was the Joe Val Fest?

Howdy John.  I'm hoping that T-ride is in the cards - shouldn't break a 10 year streak.  No Town Park ticket at this time.....but I'm more worried about securing one of those bracelets like last year!  Wink

Joe Val was, again, a pleasure.  Another cold snap came in which adds to the cool nature of the event: being holed up in the Castle catching picks in my summertime cargo shorts while the winter winds blow outside.  Infamous Stringdusters really stood out.  And Chris' HTGABB project was nice with B.Sutton taking over the guitar spot for the next year.

100% sure on Rockygrass.  95% sure on T-ride.

Where in the Boston area?   Do you go to the Greyfox Bluegrass Fest in NY?
I'm curious how you do the TBF camping when you have to fly out.  It sounds like we do the same type of camping at greyfox~ w/ the kitchen,bar & common areas.  I can't possibly bring all that on the plane EEK!   
I feel that we must know some of the same folks that run in the NE bluegrass community & like to party!  Cheers    Let me know! 

Howdy Missy!  I now reside in Quincy.  Having made many friends with Colorado folks over the years, I've managed to whittle down the amount I have to fly with.  Before that, we were bringing tents, coolers, canopy on the plane (checked, not carry-on!) but that is a huge hassle. 

Seek out a camp to adopt, is my advice  Cheers

Let's be sure to meet up one of these days.

 Wave   Hey Matt~ from what i've been reading on the forums it looks like you should bd 100%  On Telluride.   Although maybe it's just MY excitement!!!  Do you ever check out "Johnny D's"?  We've seen few good bands up there & also the "Paradise" (i was actually kicked out of there once for having too much fun!) OOPS! it was my bacherlorette party!  Also, down in Fall river~ The Narrows~ is an excellent place to see shows, BYOB & food~ cheap tix Excellent music~ www.ncfta.org ~    How about Greyfox? Have you been?  Similar line up as far as the bluegrass ~ also the Rythm & Roots Fest in Charleston, RI on Labor Day weekend.  Good times.  Cheers

Been to every venue in Boston I imagine.  And haven't been thrown out of any......that I recall.  Thumbs Up
Greyfox - yeppers; it is its own special fest.
Narrows - not yet, but I'm keeping my eyes open.

hey wyeknot108,

I'm up around you (Southern Maine) and was curious when you go about buying your plane tickets to ensure the cheapest price, or from what carrier, or to which airport, etc. Sounds like you've had many trips to Telluride, so any advice you could give would be great!

There's no easy answer.  I always depart Logan and have arrived in: Telluride, Montrose, Grand Junction, Durango, and Denver.  They all have various drive times post-arrival with Telluride clocking at a mere 10 minutes and Denver logging 6-7 hours.

And price just fluctuates a lot year-to-year and week-to-week.  Monitoring a site like kayak.com helps.

Good luck!

That is as good as you can get - nice work!!!   Thumbs Up

And Montrose->Telluride is just over an hours drive.  Good time to pick up provisions on the way unless you're taking the shuttle.

Hey Sarah,

You've got one down here in DC (though this could technically be the Mid Atlantic).

Hey Sarah,

Actually I was at home today and called into the blah blah blah. I saw Sam Bush rip it up last night and, of course, I was ripped up as well.

Got to say that your enthusiasm for Telluride is AWESOME! I can't wait for you to experience it first hand.
