You’ve probably noticed that the Durango Blues Society has taken a bit of a hiatus in bringing acts to Durango. We continue to struggle for venues that lend more toward quality sound in order for the society concerts to be of better concert quality. As we search, it has crossed our minds that perhaps we might consider an outdoor festival. We certainly welcome any feedback and any ideas any of our area blues enthusiasts may be able to offer us. Meanwhile, We encourage everyone to bop over to the Telluride Brews and Blues Festival on the weekend of September 12th through September 15th of 2003. Here’s a link to the festival site, where you can find the line-up and even get your tickets online!. Telluride Brews and Blues They have an incredible line up of old and new Blues for you. From The Blind Boys of Alabama to Blues Traveler.

The Durango Blues Society is very grateful to all of the wonderful local musicians who stepped forward and saved the night when Guitar Shorty arrived so late for our last concert. Providing over two hours of great music was above and beyond the call. It was truly a testament to what it is all about — love of music.
