Hope they play...

Looking through the lineups, I kept thinking about a bunch of songs I hope certain artists play this year. Since this is only my second Telluride experience, I thought I’d throw it out there to some experienced Festivarians:

What songs are you looking forward to hearing the most? (Either off their album or a cover)

Off the top of my head I’m hoping to hear:

Crooked Still - Railroad Bill
Greencards - Time
Railroad Earth - The Forecast
Yonder Mountain - Steep grade, sharp curves
Gaelic Storm - What’s the Rumpus?
Punch Brothers - Anything but the four movements
The Steeldrivers - Heaven Sent
WPA - Paralyzed
Zac Brown Band - Killing in the name of

The more off the wall the better!

I wanna hear the Sam Bush Band covering Led Zeppelin with Byron (if I remember correctly) on vocals. That was awesome!

David Byrne - Psycho Killer

We soooo need a banjo sit-in during Psycho Killer!!
(where the heck is the banjo playin emoticon?? We have gee-tar, fiddle and drums but NO banjo?? ~ Wassup with that??)

Things I’ve never heard before!
:cheers :cheers :cheers

Sam & Byron covered Zep like no other

I know that we anticipate and desire to hear certain things from artists, but there is something to be said for walking in with an open mind and let the music that is played, fill you up.

As much as I’d love to hear Sam and Byron do Whole Lotta Love again, three years in a row is a bit much. I’d rather hear some new stuff from Sam. Maybe River Take Me.

And as long as at least a few bands play a Hartford tune or two, I’ll be happy
