We're Headed to Telluride, Baby!!!

I'm leaving for 10 days for Colorado, going to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
This year's festival is outrageous!

The line-up includes the Counting Crows, Los Lobos, Allison Kraus, Chick Corea, Emmy Lou Harris, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Mike Marshall, Tony Rice and Peter Rowan to name a few. But the real news is that Kalamazoo's own Greensky Bluegrass is going to take the main stage for their first ever appearance after winning last year's new band competition.

Since 2003, the festival has purchased renewable energy - in the form of Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s) - to offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) created by its electricity, diesel and gas consumption. This year they are offsetting 100% of the emissions created, including travel to and from Telluride.

This is excellent. I'm glad to see more green music festivals, besides Sheryl Crow's tour and the Live Earth festival. I was on the Social Venture Network’s website today and came across this contest for socially responsible business leaders: It looks like a great way to reward new businesses for working toward the greater good.
