Yes, we know, we’ve been absent this summer. Our apologies. A myriad of health issues have kept us away, but we’re back at it. And back in a big way. AMERICANAFEST Is just a few more weeks away.

Easily our favorite music festival of all time, the roots-based festival is now in its 20th year and growing bigger than ever. In an effort to shed some light on some of the lesser known acts, they’ve released a Spotify playlist that has few, if any, skippable tracks. To be fair, there’s only six tracks, but all six of them are dynamite, and feature the likes of The Ballroom Thieves, Dead Horses, Erin Rae, Joe Pug, Ilse DeLange and Big Cedar Fever. Not familiar with any of these outfits? This playlist will change that in a hurry.

Additionally, the festival has added the following showcasing artists: Andrew Bird, Nicki Bluhm, Drivin N Cryin, Orville Peck and The Record Company. In total, the festival features nearly 300 acts in Nashville from Sept. 10-15.

But the festival is more than just a Tennessee thing. AMERICANAFEST is currently closing out Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Festival with AMERICANAFEST NYC on Aug. 10 & 11. That event features the likes of David Crosby & Friends, Patty Griffin, Ana├»s Mitchell and Yola. And best of all, it’s free. That’s reason enough for us to wish we still lived on Long Island.
