The announcements made over the past three weeks are:

The Arcs – This is another band that I look forward to getting to know!

Basia Bulat – Described at Indie, folk, pop, soul: sounds good to me!

Brett Dennen – He is a singer-songwriter who I have been trying to see for a few years.

Margo Price – I love her début album and cannot wait to see her!

John Moreland – He is another artist who I have been dying to see! Thanks, NFF!

The Strumbrellas – This is a Canadian band described as alternative pop with a great name.

Phil Cook presents “Southland Revue” with The Blind Boys of Alabama and Amelia Meath – Anything involving The Blind Boys of Alabama sounds great to me!

Hayes Carll – He is a wonderful songwriter and I am excited to see him again.

Freakwater – I love alt-country music and with a name like this, I know I will love this band.

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.

This festival has been sold out for a while. If you go to the festival’s website, there is a place for people to re-sell tickets if you are interested in purchasing some from fans, not scalpers. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it.

About suze72

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!
