Emmylou Harris to Headline FreshGrass @ MASS MoCA
Emmylou Harris has just been added to the already impressive line-up of performers for the fourth annual FreshGrass festival, the weekend wonderland of bluegrass and roots music to be held at MASS MoCA in North Adams from Friday-Sunday, September 19-21.
The silver-haired 13-time Grammy Award-winner is one of the most admired and influential women in music today, and her latest album is Old Yellow Moon, a collaboration with Rodney Crowell that won the Grammy for Best Americana Album earlier this year. And, guess what? Rodney Crowell is scheduled to perform at FreshGrass, too. Hmmmm…
The 2014 FreshGrass line-up also includes the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Railroad Earth, Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, Sam Bush, the Infamous Stringdusters, the David Grisman Sextet, the Gibson Brothers, Alison Brown, Valerie June, Aoife O’Donovan, Sam Amidon, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Michael Cleveland, Claire Lynch, Darol Anger, Cricket Tell the Weather and the Martha Redbone Roots Project. Additional performers will be announced next month.
