Harvest announces an additional eighteen acts as a lead up to May 11 announcement.
The Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival today announced an explosive array of international and regional blues talent, adding Matt Andersen, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Sonya Rae and the Sleepwalkers, The National Reserve, Matt Minglewood Band, and more than a dozen additional acts to its 2017 edition. These artists will join Colin James, Steve Earle and the Dukes, The Marcus King Band, and more at Harvest’s 27th edition, September 12-17.
“Harvest fans will be absolutely thrilled by this year’s blues line-up, with headliners that cover the full spectrum, from acoustic delta mastery through to powerful electric styles,” said Brent Staeben, Harvest’s Music Programmer. “We’ve crafted this schedule to cover the whole palette of blues taste, and we’re very pleased to mix returning favorites like Colin James, Matt Andersen and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer with some of the hottest players on the scene, in acts like Sonya Rae and the Sleepwalkers and The National Reserve,” he said. “Of course, the line-up wouldn’t be complete without longtime regional favorites, who are well represented in our 2017 edition.”
