A note from our festival director Craig Ferguson...

Greetings Festivarians!

Wow. After being part of the production team for over 60 very nice festivals, I have to say that I'm only starting to wake up from the enchantment and glow from my Telluride Bluegrass coma. I don't think I could even imagine better weather in Telluride for The Festival. We START with the most beautiful place for live music on the planet... then weather like that???

Add to that the music and I just have to look back and wonder if we weren't all part of one of the truly pinnacle musical experiences. Ever. Think about it. Where do you start?? Sarah opening the festival is a good place. Or, the House Band's final encore. And everything in between was just RELENTLESS! The music matched the weather. I have never been around a finer lineup of musicians than this year's Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

Don't make me name names.

So you've got the awesome weather, impeccable music, and add to it a few thousand festivarians and a lean, mean hard-working production crew...


I've never been to a family reunion that felt so right.

Telluride festivarians (photo: Laura Klein)Of course, we'd love to hear you name names in our 2010 Telluride Bluegrass Online Festivarian Survey. Tell us about your favorite performers and who you'd like to see next year; share your thoughts on the campgrounds, FirstGrass, merchandise, sustainability, whatever. Tell us everything you're aching to share - we're eager to listen. It only takes 5 minutes of your time. And one lucky response will win a pair of 4-day passes for the 2011 Festival!

Speaking of 2011 ticket winners, congratulations to our Sustainable Campsite Challenge Winners Camp Stumbling Puddle. In addition to compost, recycling, and total reliance on reusables, they led the way in creative camping in Warner Field - costumes, "insane decorations," toy box, even a camp oven. If you hung out at this lively Warner Field camp, drop them a quick congratulations on our Facebook page.

Or join the dialog on our Facebook page or the Festivarian Forum.

Our friends at No Depression are searching for an official blogger for the 20th Annual Folks Festival. Write a blog post about the Folks Festival (anything at all - favorite festival memory, favorite 2010 artist, anything) and you might win a pair of VIP press passes and camping.

We'll have much more to share very soon about the magic still to come this summer in Lyons. For now, take a few minutes to reflect on your Telluride experience for us. Oh, and be sure to let us know: how's your whole family?
