The announcements made over the past week are:

Raury – He sounds quite interesting; soul/hip-hop/folk.

My Morning Jacket – Members of the band (but not Jim James) will back Ray LaMontagne in his set.

Villagers – I have never heard of them and that’s much of the excitement for this festival: being introduced to my new favorite bands!

St. Paul and the Broken Bones – I am so excited to be able to see them! Several friends saw a recent show and said it was one of their favorites in recent memory.

I plan to post the announcements weekly until NFF has completed the entire lineup. At that point, I might offer my opinions on which acts to see, once I know who is performing which day.

At this point, the only remaining type of ticket is the Friday single-day ticket. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it. Get your tickets now!!!

Friday:  Ray LaMontagne with My Morning Jacket, Raury, St.Paul and the Broken Bones

Saturday:  Father John Misty, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats

Sunday:  Joan Shelley, Villagers

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
