Mr. Itterly is the Telluride Blues and Brews 2016 Telluride Blues Challenge winner, and one of the perks of grabbing that honor has landed him on the stage this year. The Telluride Blues Challenge is an annual competition hosted by the Telluride Blues Society and the Colorado Blues Society. The competition showcases talented musicians who excel in the Blues genre and is open to any solo performer(s), acoustic and electric, who are not currently signed to a major record label or publishing deal. With influences and styles ranging from ragtime, western swing, country blues and Jimmy Page’s acoustic fingerpicking style, Steve writes his own material. His songs reflect a myriad of American music traditions, as well as his own personal reflections. Congratulations, Steve!
