Dr. John announced for Strawberry

Strawberry Music Festivals filled in the last piece of its Fall festival lineup with a big-time Friday night closer, New Orleans musical legend Dr. John, in his first Strawberry appearance. With Lucinda Williams, Mark O'Connor and Son Volt already in the grid, along with the usual tasty assortment of returning Strawberry favorites and interesting new performers, that adds up to a very strong lineup that's sure to please anyone who was grumbling about a lack of star power at the Spring festival.

The full main stage schedule is now posted. Dr. John will follow Patrice Pike and Son Volt to close Friday night. Saturday, Lucinda Williams finishes an evening session that also includes Jimmy Lafave and James Hunter. Sunday night is the most acoustic, with Mark O"Connor closing the festival after sets by Dry Branch Fire Squad and The Bills.

Long time festival favorite Marley's Ghost is the Thursday night closer. Other notable names in the lineup include Joe Craven, The Saw Doctors, Harry Manx, Assembly of Dust, Samantha Robichaud, James Hand and The Wailin' Jennies.

The appearance by Dr. John, who also answers to his real name, Mac Rebennack, will be his first at Strawberry. The four-time Grammy winner fronts a hot band with his rollicking keyboards and vocals, serving up a New Orleans gumbo of R&B, roots rock, and funk.
