Telluride Town Park, 4 p.m. June 22 – A true Colorado-born act just made it’s Telluride debut although one member of O’Brien Party of Seven, Tim O’Brien, has played here almost every year. The band includes powerful Denver vocalist Mollie O’Brien, her husband guitarist Rich Moore, their two daughters and Tim’s two sons. The cute, funny family band took turns as lead singers on songs by country legend Roger Miller. Top treat was “King of the Road” done bluegrass-style.
Coming up today: Banjoist Bela Fleck with jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, Creedance Clearwater Revival founder John Fogerty and Colorado’s Leftover Salmon.
