Telluride workshops and more

TBF's full schedule of workshops, competitions, and family tent activities is now available. Among the workshop highlights: A mandolin supersession with Sam Bush, Mike Marshall, and Drew Emmitt; a virtuoso instrumental roundtable with Noam Pikelney (banjo), David Grier (guitar), and Shad Cobb (fiddle); and band showcases for rising stars The Greencards, Hit & Run Bluegrass, and Steven Kellogg & The Sixers.

As for the competitions, I'm not familiar with any of the Troubador singer-songwriter entries, but the band competition should be hot with Festival Preview favorties Cadillac Sky, The Lovell Sisters, and Poor Man's Whiskey among the 12 bands vying for the prize. Finalists in both contests will get a chance to show off on the main stage. Good luck to all the hopefuls.
