The announcements made over the past week are:

Matt the Electrician – This Austin-based singer-songwriter is a fine addition to the Folk Family.

The Head and the Heart – The only time I have seen this wonderful band was their first appearance at the Fort and am excited to see them there again!

American Acoustic with Punch Brothers, I’m With Her (Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan), and Julian Lage – What a supergroup! I have seen all these amazing artists together, separately, and as duos, but having them all in one set will be killer!

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, there are no remaining tickets, but you can sign up here for the official fan exchange. This is an amazing festival – hope to see you at the Fort!!!

Friday:  Fleet Foxes, Big Thief, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Seratones, Matt the Electrician, The Head and the Heart

Saturday: Marlon Williams, Drive-By Truckers, Angel Olsen

Sunday:  Margaret Glaspy, CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR!, Rhiannon Giddens, Dr. Dog, American Acoustic

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!
