Suck-Face Al Goes to Telluride

Posted On:

I got a letter and a few photos today from Al Walsh AKA Suck-Face Al.
Al’s our dear friend and a former Park Ranger at Fort Jefferson in The Dry Tortugas. Al, is currently ranger at Lake Powell in Arizona, made the drive up and met us at the Telluride Blues Fest the last two years. We didn’t make it this year but it would appear Al did.
While there he ran into his long-time friend Tinsley Ellis, one of Telluride’s headliners this year.
Pictured in the first photo with Tinsley and in the second pouring a draft with Annie at The Parrot.


According to Al, the Green Parrot was well represented on the Telluride stage this year with Parrot alumni Tinsley Ellis, Jimbo Mathis, Nick Moss, The Lee Boys and Joey Gilmore. Not bad for a corner saloon at the end of the road.
I should post some shots from us with Al at last year’s Blues Fest. Now where are those photos…

Al we wish we were there
