The Knitters are back for Strawberry Fall

The legendary original purveyors of country punk, The Knitters, will play on the same bill as The Avett Brothers, probably the reigning champs in that category, at Strawberry Music Festival Fall, August 28-31 at Camp Mather near Groveland CA.

The festival announced the rare festival date for The Knitters along with singer-songwriter Patty Griffin as the most recent adds to a lineup also featuring Sam Bush, Marc Broussard, Mavis Staples and the Avett Brothers, among many more. Knitters guitarist Dave Alvin is an old Strawberry hand, but this will be a debut performance for The Knitters, who released one album in 1985 and another in 2005. Patty Griffin has played two previous Strawberrys, but her Spring 2006 performance was marred by cold weather.
