Durango Blues Train- Weekend 2
Durango Blues Train will close out the summer season with its second weekend on August 18 and 19, 2017. The Blues Train is an exciting 3.5-hour moving experience of live blues on board the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The Blues Train features six blues performances on the coal-fired, steam-powered train. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach, while passengers are free to dance their way from coach to coach as the train winds its way through the breathtaking canyons of the San Juan National Forest. Tickets for the unique, live music event are set to go on sale Tuesday, March 28th at 10:00 a.m.
“We’re excited to continue the seven-year legacy of the Blues Train,” said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train. “It’s nice to have a 2nd set of train dates to look forward to. We have another top-notch bill of artists set to play this one-of-a-kind event.”
The artist lineup for August will be released on Thursday, March 30th at 11:00 a.m.
