Nels Cline and Julian Lage to Play Solid Sound Fest
Nels Cline and Julian Lage will play together at this year’s Solid Sound Festival. The announcement came yesterday on Wilco’s Facebook page, with the band posting a New York Times article about the duo’s performance at the Winter Jazz Festival under the caption “Rumor has it this amazing pair might appear at Solid Sound Festival this summer.” Solid Sound Festival is put on by Wilco whom Cline has played guitar for since 2004. Lage, who gained prominence as a child guitar prodigy, released his first album Sounding Point in 2011. The pair have played a number of shows together last year, including a string of dates this past December followed by a performance at New York City’s Winter Jazz Festival last weekend. The 2013 Solid Sound Festival will take place June 21-23 in North Adams, MA.
