This week started with an unusual announcement.

This additions to the Festival lineup are:

Deering Banjos Presents Communion – curating a series of performances at the Museum Stage; sounds like a great concept

The Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir – they performed last year and were a great way to start Sunday’s lineup at the Fort Stage

Pegi Young and The Survivors – yes, she happens to be married to Neil Young but she has a successful career of her own and I’m excited to know I’ll be seeing her at the Festival

Pokey LaFarge – yet another artist who’s been on my radar to see, and now I’ll get the chance
