MerleFest 2020 Unveils Initial Lineup, Including Willie Nelson & Family, Alison Krauss and More
MerleFest has announced the first phase of its lineup, which will include legendary artists Willie Nelson & Family, Alison Krauss, The Jerry Douglas Band, Sam Bush, Jim Lauderdale and more.
The festival, an annual celebration of roots music that has been running since 1988, will be held Apr. 23-26 in Wilkesboro, N.C. “For over 30 years, one of the major factors that has built and sustained MerleFest has been the quality of the artists and performances that our guests see over the 4-day festival,” said Ted Hagaman, the festival’s director. “People truly feel that the festival is a great value and that is why music fans and families returns year after year.”
Tickets to MerleFest 2020 go on sale on Nov. 12. For more information, head over to merlefest.org.
