Q & A: 6:30pm
Every summer, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival hosts a band competition. It is arguably one of the biggest bluegrass festivals in the world and their band competition has kick started the careers of many successful bands like The Dixie Chicks, Greensky Bluegrass, and Sugar and the Mint. Amazingly, all it takes to get in is a phone call.
In December, 2017, three bandmates(Will Maxwell, Winston Mitchell, and Brian Stephenson) sat around with several phones in an attempt to get into that competition, and to their surprise they got in. They added two more band members(Jesse Stockton and Greg Howell), named the band Into The Fog, and set out for Colorado the next Summer.
Band #7 documents the band, Into The Fog, on their journey to compete in the Telluride Band Competition. The story starts in Wilmington, NC as the band raises money through a kickstarter campaign, promotes the trip through live shows, and prepares for one of the biggest opportunities in music.
