High Sierra Music Festival, held July 4-7 in Quincy, CA, is proud to announce more artist additions for 2019. In addition to the previously announced, already show-stopping lineup, HSMF is pleased to welcome independent-music legends Dispatch to the top of the festival’s bill. The announcement also includes festival-favorites Steel Pulse, Manic Focus, Pnuma (Live), Too Many Zoos, Tauk, and Natalie Cressman. Keeping with the collaborative history HSMF is known for, Stanton Moore and Skerik reunite as the Emerald Quintet featuring Scott Metzger, Robert Walter and Chris Stillwell in celebration of the 20th “emerald” anniversary of their first JazzFest performance, and John Kadlecik brings his “Fellowship of The Wing” project featuring Jay Lane, Reed Mathis, and Todd Stoops; a pair of sure-to-be reminisced sets. Guatemalan songstress Gaby Moreno and funky-blues-rock rowdies Andy Frasco and the U.N. have also been added to the lineup.
