Durango Bluegrass Meltdown

Jam Sessions


During the Meltdown, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to jam with other musicians – in hallways, on sidewalks, and many other locations. Don’t play? Relax and  enjoy the scene!

Great Local Venues


The historic Henry Strater Theater, Durango Arts Center, Wildhorse Saloon, and Discovery Museum all provide outstanding venues to listen to bluegrass artists from across the country.

Family Friendly


The Meltdown has something for everyone – including young folks! From our Bluegrass in the Schools program, to children’s workshops and the Old Time Barn Dance, there’s a lot for the younger set to do.
