Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, The Greencards, Tony Rice, Punch Brothers, Peter Rowan Set for MerleFest 25

The 25th MerleFest will take place from April 26 – 29, 2012. The four-day event will once again take place on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, NC. MerleFest is an annual celebration of Eddy Merle Watson, the son of American music icon Doc Watson. “This year’s initial lineup will bring back a little nostalgia for the core MerleFest audience, those fans who return year after year to hear the traditional sounds of roots music. We have some of the leading names in the music industry, of today and yesteryear, lined up to perform at the historic 25th festival,” said Ted Hagaman, director of the festival.

“The MerleFest 25 lineup is made up of many of the artists who have helped make this festival the premier, internationally-recognized event that it has become. And, we are thrilled to welcome back that core fan base that has been with us for the ride all along… and welcome a whole new generation of fans to experience the music, moments and memories that make MerleFest so special.”

Highlights include Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, The Greencards, Tony Rice, Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile, Peter Rowan and the Free Mexican Airforce and Jim Lauderdale.
