KQED 9: Fri, Feb 16, 2018 -- 11:30 PM

Telluride, Colorado, a small city nestled in a breathtaking valley high in the Rocky Mountains, is a creative jewel that blends an adventurous spirit with creative energy. The Music Voyager team is invited to explore the multiple festivals that call Telluride home, from Blues & Brews, to Mushroom, Mountainfilm, Bluegrass and Jazz. The journey to one of America's great small towns reveals why Telluride has long been a haven for explorers, adventurers, fortune seekers and people looking for an escape from the rat race. Local musicians, artists, microbrewers, chefs and outdoorsmen demonstrate that Telluride is a vibrant and creative community as well as a world-class destination for live music, film, and the arts.
