Strawberry announces complete schedules

Except for one TBA for its Spring event, Strawberry Music Festivals posted complete schedules for its two 2006 festivals, including a number of previously unannounced acts.

The new acts for Spring are Laura Love Duo, La Guitara, Assembly of Dust, and Bearfoot Bluegrass. For Fall, That 1 Guy and Harry Manx are the latest additions. The night-by-night headliners for Spring are Ryan Shupe & The Rubber Band, Los Lobos, John Haitt & The North Mississippi All-Stars, and Patty Griffin. For Fall, the closers are Incendio, Rodney Crowell Band, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Thunderbirds (correction: His Fabulous Superlatives), and The Sam Bush Band.

Among lots of other exciting performers, I'm psyched to see La Guitara, the project of cross-genre female guitar innovators, including Patty Larkin. Many on the Strawberry email list are excited about Harry Manx, a Canadian performer who mixes acoustic blues and Indian raga musical styles. Festival Preview will have more lineup analysis in the near future.

Isn't it Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives?

Thanks, I fixed it. Kind of a cute play on the convention of naming backup bands.
