Barbed Wire Productions was the originator of the Telluride Americana Music Fest & Songwriter Showcase, presented every summer in Telluride, Colorado's historic Sheridan Opera House.  The Sheridan is a jewel - a restored, 100-year old theater with seating for 240 people.

Beginning in 2021, the event will be under the direction of Texas singer-songwriter Jack Ingram, working with Jennifer Stevens and Kevin Howard.  The 2022 event is scheduled for July 14-17, 2022.

This mini-festival has been called "summer camp for Americana music." During the day - mountain biking, hiking, rafting, golf and other activities in cool temperatures at 9,000 feet.  During the evenings - music.  All in a small theater in a majestic mountain town in a box canyon in the high Rocky Mountains.
