Gregg Allman will return to the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival this year as Gov't Mule's Special Guest, Saturday,
September 18, 2004. Regarding the addition of Allman to the line-up, Steve
Gumble, Festival Director, says, "Gregg Allman has been one of my musical
heroes for many years. He is truly a part of rock and roll's living history and
Telluride is once again part of that history. To have him grace our stage with
Gov't Mule is more than just an honor, it is a privilege."
