TELLURIDE BREWS & BREWS FESTIVAL KICKS OFF WITH A FREE CONCERT
Hillstomp And The Johnson County Coroners To Play Sunset Blues Concert
Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Join Telluride Blues & Brews Festival in Mountain Village’s Sunset Plaza for the Sunset Blues Concert featuring Hillstomp with opener The Johnson County Coroners on Thursday, September 17th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The event – a short and scenic Gondola ride away from the Town of Telluride – is free and open to the public.
Be prepared to lace up your stompin’ boots for Portland’s Hillstomp featuring “Hurricane” Henry Christian on slide guitar and “Lord Johnny” Johnson on drums (or lids and cans). The duo’s distinctive brand of DIY hill country and blues frequently incorporates an arsenal of creative ‘instruments’ including buckets and washboards and always makes for an entertaining evening. Hillstomp’s memorable live performances create a magic that cannot be rehearsed, combining Mississippi trance blues, Appalachia and punkabilly for a unique and infectious sound that will definitely get you on your feet.
Both band’s sets are scheduled to highlight the scenic sunset backdrop from the lawn in the Mountain Village Sunset Plaza. The Town of Mountain Village’s Entertainment District allows a fluid social atmosphere where alcoholic beverages purchased from associated restaurants can be taken into the Common Consumption Area and enjoyed during the concert. The free event will take place rain or shine.
Supporting sponsors are The Town of Mountain Village, Telluride Ski Resort, Sierra Nevada Brewing, SBG Productions, and the Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association (TMVOA).
