Joy Kills Sorrow photos by Chona Kasinger The actual event isn’t taking place until August, but if can get a chance to hear some of the music that will be featured in the Fayetteville Roots Festival right now, why wouldn’t you? Speaking of … A Boston-based string group Joy Kills Sorrow contains, among the members, a Berklee-trained player and a Winfield National Flatpicking Championship winner among their ranks. The group, which recently released the album “This Unknown Science,” will perform during a preview party for the upcoming Fayetteville Roots Festival. The preview show takes place from 5-10 p.mView Post brothers, industry, joy kills sorrow, king, music, roots festival preview, sorrow, unknown
No doubt about it, The Avett Brothers are performing at Wakarusa. Above is their song “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise.”
With two of the three Wakarusa lineup announcements already made, the biggest question that remained was in regard to the artist that will fill a vacancy near the top of the list, ranked just below Pretty Lights and just above Primus.
The folk rock act from North Carolina will visit Mulberry Mountain near Ozark sometime between May 31 and June 3. Those are the four days that Wakarusa will invade Franklin County for its fourth annual event in Arkansas.
Four-day event passes are $149. Prices for camping or day parking vary according to distance from the main stage area. Other price packages, such as VIP tickets, are also available through the ticketing website.
Now that we know the full lineup, what do think? How does Wakarusa 2012 compare to other years?View Post avett brothers, brothers, concert announcements, county, ghostland, mountain, nwa music news, slightly-stoopid, wakarusa, wakarusa lineup 2012
