Say Cheese: Telluride Bluegrass Festival

Telluride Bluegrass Festival
Telluride, CO

Words By J-man

2003 boasted a larger touring schedule than the previous year, as well as the year to follow. June 19th, 2003 brought the boys to the most respected and anticipated bluegrass festival in the country, Telluride Bluegrass Festival! By all accounts it was a cold and rainy day. Who better to brighten it up than SCI? The addition of some great guests and a fantastic setlist and we have ourselves a show worthy of a "Say Cheese" pick! Guests included Martin Sexton, John Cowan and members of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

String Cheese Incident Live at Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 19, 2003.

Set 1: Best Feeling > Jam > How Mountain Girls Can Love, Tom Thumb's Blues > Lost, Rivertrance, I Wish, Desert Dawn, Windy Mountain > Boo Boo's Pikanic, Joyful Sound > Way Back Home, Can't Stop Now, Rollover

Encore: Telluride, Amazing Grace > Will the Circle Be Unbroken

To highlight the show would be to do it great injustice, as this one is meant to be listened to straight through. From bluegrass to intense improvisational depth, the band reflects a well-rehearsed, musical giant. Couple the great music with one of the most picturesque scenes that a festival could offer and the legend was told.

Enjoy this SCI show from Telluride!
