On a related note:  I don't believe Yonder's "traditional time slots" are going to change in the near future either.

Does Camp Run A Muck Tuesday late night count as traditional now?

At this point I have mixed feelings about Jeff Austin. Yes, it woukd be nice to have him back. But Yonder has changed. They are a different band now with Jake Joliff and Allie Kraal. They have worked hard to develop a cohesion with the new members in their performances. As long as Jake is part of Yonder, I dont see Jeff coming back. Plus all the young ladies seem to have a fondness for Jake.

Have you seen any of the projects Jeff has done with Danny Barnes?? Or did any of you see YMSB when D Barnes replaced Dave for a leg of their tour back around 2007/8ish that was flat out bad ass.. I'm not asking for Jeff to be back in the band, though I liked that sound better. Just saying I don't understand how a Jeff Austin project can't play T-ride while YMSB is there??? Because they totally play other fests at same time.
How many went to Salmon Fest at PB in Lyons in 2000? That was one of the greatest YMSB single sets ever. Followed by their two nights at the Fox later that month, man I miss those early days of Yonder.

Don't have any problem with Jeff playing at Telluride. My guess is that PB doesn't want to cause any waves. They seem to be happy with Yonder. Counting their Run a Muck show, you could have seen them play 5 times this year. Yonder is more of the house band than the house band.

How about getting Pat Flynn back or Strength in Numbers? PB, in the end, calls the shots. I would have liked to see Salmon back this year, but it was just not meant to be.

I don't believe I've seen Jeff with Danny Barnes, but have seen the JAB about four times since the Yonder split and while one of those shows was very subdued and ethereal/jazzy, the other three were totally "on" in terms of everything coming together.  Have probably seen Yonder about 6 times since the split and while none of their shows were "duds" (by any stretch), only one or two may have been "on" (for my tastes) and have found the band to be lacking the "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" component that it clearly had originally.  Sometimes the parts don't get along in real life, and sometimes one of the parts can be a bit of a PITA ... but can you imagine an Eagle's version of Hotel California or Witchy Woman without Don Henley on vocals?

I'm also not suggesting that Nigel needs to hold his guitar over his head as he walks on stage to reunite with his old band mates, but can't help but wonder about the perpetual absence of a long time TBF creative force as an independent act in light of the "broken family" being able to get along elsewhere?

Can't argue with most of the names mentioned so far, especially Tedeschi Trucks Band and the Black Lillies.  Railroad Earth is always  welcome in my book along with Leftover Salmon anytime!  I'm in the bring back Jeff Austin camp as well, can't we all just get along, I always thought Telluride was about inclusiveness and welcoming to all, even if it might be "inconvenient" for a small few.

Rapidgrass is a fun band that would be great to see in Telluride.  If we're talking about a non-bluegrass band which we seem to get more and more of lately I think Of Monsters and Men would be fun.  And I really liked the Dierks set this year with the Travelin' McCoury's, why not a little more country in our lives like Little Big Town!

Maybe Sugar can work some magic and get Jeff Austin to play Run a Muck next year?  Evil Cheers

Tuesday night I heard Mark O'Connor and the O'Connor Band at the Boulder Theater, and they were amazing, just excellent musicians playing brilliantly together. O'Connor asked specifically for someone to put in a good word for them with Telluride.  Thumbs Up I first heard them at Rocky Grass last summer, so it's not like Planet Bluegrass doesn't know about them. I guarantee if they appear at TBGF they'll kill it.

Jason Isbell/Amanda Shires w/ or w/o 400 Unit depending on time slot
Steve Earle w/ the McCourys
Holly Williams
Turnpike Troubadours
Ashley Monroe
Brandi Clarke
John Moreland
Pistol Annies
Brent Cobb
Drew Holcomb
Neko Case
The Sadies
Taj Mahal and Keb Mo

That may be enough!

Looking back at prior lineups, I'm so, so envious of all who can get to TBF every year - what great music!!!

since they just announced getting back together for a bit.  How about one last shot at Dolly and Kenny Rogers passing through.

Just settling in after a fantastic Grey Fox festival.  Billy Strings totally floored the festival and would be a great fit for Telluride.  Cabinet (who I'd never heard of before) was also really good.

LEFTOVER SALMON
Poi Dog Pondering
Dwight Yoakum (he has a new Bluegrass album)
Alison Krauss
Gipsy Moon


good call on dwight...at least i thought it was a good idea until i saw him recently...
loved his new cd(2016) and especially the SUPER killer vesion of purple rain on it
he did zero songs off the new cd at the show i saw...wtf !
and that cd has a nice bluegrass feel to it. ugh
i left the show disappointed as a result.

i would love to see paul kelly play telluride
and xavier rudd of course
