OK, the fabulous and only slightly water-logged Solid Sound fest is over, and it won’t be back to North Adams until 2017. But that doesn’t mean that the music is over at MASS MoCA.

In fact, FreshGrassMASS MoCA’s next big music fest, scheduled for Friday-Sunday, September 18-20 – has pumped up its line-up considerably since the first round of performers were announced in February, including the new addition of Dwight Yoakam, who will make a stop at the fest in support of his new album, Second Hand Heart.
