Strawberry fills out lineups

Strawberry yesterday announced lots of new acts for the Spring and Fall fests. I'll have more analysis later; for now, here are the new names (not including any previously announced). For any fence-sitters, both festivals are moving into the not-to-be-missed range.

Spring: John Hiatt & The Mississippi Allstars, Ryan Shupe & The Rubber Band, Los Lobos, The Stairwell Sisters.

Fall: Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Incendio, Blame Sally, Way Out West, Grupo Fantasma, Witcher Brothers, Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys, The Jerry Douglas Band

At this point, assuming Strawberry sticks with its 21-act schedule template from recent years, the Fall lineup has three acts yet to be named; Spring has eight more to be announced.
