MerleFest, presented by Window World and slated for April 28-May 1, 2016, is proud to announce additions to the 2016 lineup: Old Crow Medicine Show, Alison Brown, Peter Rowan and Doug Seegers. The four-day event, the largest roots and Americana music festival in the nation, takes place on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, in the heart of Appalachia. MerleFest continues the legacy of Doc Watson and is a benefit for the college. The homecoming of roots music fans draws nearly 80,000 participants every year.

We'd love to talk about coverage for MerleFest 2016 and would be happy to put you in touch with artists or  festival organizers. Just let us know! These four artists join nearly 100 other artists already announced, including John Prine, Dave Rawlings Machine, The Wood Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and more!
