January means two things here on Planet Bluegrass - lots of snow and the end of Telluride holiday ticket prices. It's that age-old quandary: do you run around looking for tickets in the spring, or save yourself $30 and spend the rest of the winter planning for the greatest musical event of 2006?
Maybe this will help... Neko Case (Harp Magazine's female artist of the year) and Missy Higgins (5-time Australian Grammy-winner) have both recently confirmed for Telluride '06. Just three of the nearly twenty artists already confirmed, and we've got some major surprises still in the works.
Camping passes for nearby Warner Field are still available, as are numerous lodging options in Telluride and Mountain Village. But not for long.
Holiday ticket prices end Friday, January 27 at 5pm. Save yourself the price of a couple CDs and start planning for the must-see event of the summer.
