Announcing: Wakarusa 2011 Line Up

We’re barely a week into 2011 and we’ve already got our first major summer festival line up announcement of the season that has us excited for the warmer months ahead. Earlier today the fine folks behind the Wakarusa Music Festival dropped a monster list of bands that will take to the variety of tents and stages over the weekend of June 2 -5 at Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas.

Now in it’s seventh year, the jam-friendly festival will be headlined by the mighty My Morning Jacket, who are joined at the top of the bill by Ben Harper & Relentless7, Thievery Corporation and STS9.

Other acts set to head to Mulberry Mountain this year will be HT faves Umphrey’s McGee, Mumford & Sons, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Galactic, Dark Star Orchestra, Perpetual Groove, Those Darlins and These United States.

A variety of ticketing options for the four day festival are currently on-sale, which include an early bird full event pass for the low price of $139.

Hoots & Hellmouth


MySpace / Website

Generally, one would look somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon line for spirited gospel-infused Americana, but contrary to conventional wisdom it’s the City Of Brotherly Love that the roots-revival act Hoots & Hellmouth calls home. The band combines its plaintive lyrics with high and lonesome bluegrass harmonies, fire and brimstone playing and folkie-acoustic ballads that will make it almost impossible to keep your feet from stomping along.

If you’re a fan of OCMS or YMSB then this band’s latest disc The Holy Open Secret should fit nicely into your collection of contemporary old-time music. Hoots & Hellmouth kick off their summer tour tonight, with an album release party an New York City’s Joe’s Pub.
