Presented by SBG Productions and the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, the Durango Blues Train returns to the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for the 8th year August 17 & 18. The Blues Train is an exciting moving musical experience of live blues music on board the coal-fired, steam-powered train through the breathtaking Animas River Valley.

live blues music

The Blues Train features six blues performances inside the train coaches with a festive musical atmosphere. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach, while passengers are free to dance their way from coach to coach. The Blues Train follows the same format as years past, with nine historic passenger cars, a steam- engine locomotive, two full bands, four solo/duo acts and three bars with craft beer and wine. The trip starts and ends in Durango traveling just far enough out to experience spectacular views of the Animas River Valley.

Tickets are $119 per person per night, plus a Historic Train Preservation fee. Tickets are limited and will sell out in advance. Purchasers must be 21 years old to participate. Tickets are available online at

Refreshments will be available on board. Guests can enjoy light snacks, wine and craft beer from award- winning regional brewery partners Telluride Brewing Company and Ska Brewing.

The August lineup features The A.J. Fullerton Band, The Rebekah Meldrum Band, Molly Gene-One Whoaman Band, D.W. Doucet, Cary Morin and RL Cole!
