Now that it’s complete, the lineup for this year's MeadowGrass Music Festival looks pretty stellar.
Since we last checked in, they’ve added local favorites such as in/PLANES and Xanthe Alexis, plus some big names in folk, bluegrass, Americana and blues.
Find an in depth break down of the festival schedule in this week's Reverb, and check out our updated MeadowGrass playlist below, where you can listen to our choice tunes from the festival’s upcoming performers.
