This set closed out the third day (Saturday) of the 1997 Telluride Bluegrass Festival. I was in attendance and recording and came away with approx. 50 minutes of this set.
The Official program lists the act as THE SAM BUSH BAND WITH JOHN COWAN but the announcer intros them as SAM AND JOHN AND THE C-NOTES. I believe that Bela Fleck plays on the first four songs. The scheduled time was 10 PM - ?.
Chairs were permitted to be brought into the venue by Festivarians so I attached an aluminum tent pole to the chair and placed the microphone on top, approx. 6 feet off the ground. I was positioned to take advantage of one of the secondary speaker stacks that were about halfway out in the crowd and on both sides.
This recording is Uncirculated and is finally seeing the light of day.
I will be uploading more from Telluride 1997 (Bela Fleck, David Crosby, Lyle Lovett).
