Greensky Bluegrass delivered a set at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival on Friday. The band welcomed the “Mayor Of Telluride” Sam Bush as well as Lindsay Lou for their performance on the Mainstage at Telluride’s Town Park.

Greensky Bluegrass — mandolinist Paul Hoffman, guitarist Dave Bruzza, dobroist Anders Beck, banjo player Michael Bont and bassist Mike Devol — got their Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2022 appearance underway with a pairing of new song, “Monument,” off their 2022 album Stress Dreams, and older staple “Burn Them,” from their landmark 2014 LP If Sorrows Swim. The Shouted, Written Down & Quoted favortie “Past My Prime” followed.

Greensky then stretched “Stress Dreams” past the 10-minute mark before welcoming vocalist Lindsay Lou for the staple “In Control.” Lindsay recently collaborated with GSBG at the band’s Camp Greensky festival in Michigan.

Bruzza then led the band through his “A Letter To Seymour” before Greensky welcomed Sam Bush, who added fiddle to a cover of Derek And The Dominos’ “Keep On Growing.” Sam stayed on as the band segued into the bluegrass standard “Reuben’s Train,” which also surpassed the 10-minute mark. Bush respirsed his Greensky guest role after sitting in with the band last year at Telluride.

Gressnky Bluegrass then went it alone for Stress Dreams’ cut “Screams” before closing out the set with a coupling of another Stress Dreams song “Reasons To Stay” ahead of stretching out on “Worried About The Weather” to cap off the set. Greensky Bluegrass would keep up the Stress Dreams material for the encore with the LP’s lead single “Grow Together.”
