by Amanda Push

The organizers of the 43rd Annual Telluride Jazz Festival have released the lineup for the late summer festival. The jazz fest, taking place Aug. 9-11, pulls in artists from all kinds of music genres aside from jazz, including gospel, funk, and soul. Past festival performers include Muddy Waters, Dizzy Gillespie, and Mavis Staples.

“The city of New Orleans has always had an influence on the Telluride Jazz Festival earning a special place in our heart” Steve Gumble, festival director, stated in a news release. “I could not think of a better representative than Trombone Shorty to honor that legacy. This year, we’re excited to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Student All-Stars Program. Veronica Swift, a darling of the jazz world, returns to the lineup after getting her start here in Telluride years ago as a teenager in the Allstars Program. Once again, we are honored to present a very well-rounded artist line-up with a wide range of appeal to all generations.”
