Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Creating Passionate Users has a great post on the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. And I’ve added the festival to the things I’m going to have to do before I’m 55.

The most important message I get here is that it’s about a culture of collaboration and working and helping others. The folks on the stage are constantly interacting with one another, showing up during each other’s sets to help out–something I rarely see in the rock world. But the key for me is that there’s also plenty of learning for those of us who don’t play a bluegrass instrument, but want to appreciate the music more.

The "culture of collaboration and working and helping others" may make bluegrass one of the musical voices of the Emergent Generation – a musical voice of authenticity.

And then Kathy kills me with this statement:

Gotta go — the Bela Fleck/Jean-Luc Ponty/Stanley Clarke set is about to start. This is not your father’s bluegrass.

Three of my favourite musos! Yikes!
