    For four days the Town Park stage will be filled with adventurous acoustic music extending well beyond the confines of "bluegrass" into the broader genre of "Telluride bluegrass." Since New Grass Revival introduced rock songs and a jamming aesthetic to Telluride in 1975, the festival has birthed a musical family around the diversity of roots music - with numerous artists celebrating more than 25 consecutive years on the main stage, including this year’s honoree, Jerry Douglas.

    For the more than 10,000 “festivarians” who make their annual pilgrimage to the historic mining town of Telluride (population 2000), nestled high in the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado, Telluride is the Festivarian Family Reunion. With non-stop music on the main stage, intimate workshops, late-night “Nightgrass” concerts at indoor venues around town, and jam sessions in condos and campgrounds, Telluride's 2009 acoustic adventure continues the tradition as one of the world's great music festivals.
