Texas alt-rock bluegrass band Seryn returns to Telluride with a seated show at the historic Sheridan Opera House. With their beautifully layered instrumentation, chilling harmony vocals, and exquisite dynamics, it's hard to imagine that Seryn is a relatively new band and not seasoned veterans. Their songs may first appear as straight folk songs before transforming into transcendent and triumphant walls of sound. Their live presence, with each member swapping instruments and joining in on the chorus, is as joyful and stirring as music gets. (Please note: Balcony seats in rows P & O are flip down with a great view of the stage, but limited leg room)
