Forty years of festivation

New Planet Bluegrass book documents the evolution of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and so much more

By Joel Dyer
The book is clearly intended to be a celebration of the ongoing success of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, one of America’s greatest annual musical events. But as I explored the rich historical photos, read the essays and revisited the musical lineups from every year since the festival kicked off in 1974, I realized the book is much more than that. It is a lens focused on the evolutionary trail of not only the festival, but the people who attend, the musicians who perform and the mountain town that has played host for four decades.

“The ukulele is a really accessible instrument,” says Lindsay Taylor, publicity manager for Swallow Hill Music. “There’s only four strings on it so it’s really easy to manage for people. The ukulele is small, you can put it on your back, you can go anywhere with it.

The jokers of spades

Red Fang likes its sludge-metal with a hint of whimsy

By Adam Perry
Not many modern metal groups are featured on NPR’s First Listen or routinely garner nearly a halfmillion YouTube views when a new music video is released. But Portland sludge-rock favorite Red Fang, which plays the Gothic Theatre in Denver this Friday night, has a unique way of maintaining a sense of unbridled fun, for both band and listener, while playing remarkably heavy songs with remarkably dark lyrics.
