The June 2 and 3, 2017 Durango Blues Train was a ride for the books! Perfect weather, eclectic performances and a great group of riders made for a spectacular musical voyage. It's always a pleasure to rock the rails aboard the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and the event producers, SBG Productions, sincerely thank all of the partners, staff, artists and riders who made this Durango Blues Train a memorable event!
