Festival organizers wouldn’t confirm the news, but it appears as though the first artists of the 2014 Fayetteville Roots Festival have been unveiled by the internets.
According to popular concert tracker Pollstar.com, acclaimed songwriter Darrell Scott will make his second Fayetteville Roots Festival appearance next year along with friend and collaborator Tim O’Brien when the festival rolls into town again in August of 2014.
Scott was one of the more engaging performers of the 2012 Fayetteville Roots Festival, where he performed just before headliner John Prine in the Walton Arts Center’s Baum Walker Hall.
The duo, which happen to be in the area this week for a show at the Yonder Mountain String Band Harvest Music Festival, have been touring together after releasing their second album collaboration Memories & Moments in September. The two are set to perform at 3:30 p.m. on the main stage today (Thursday, Oct. 17) at Harvest Festival on the Mulberry Mountain.
The lineup for the 2014 festival isn’t due to be released for several months, but it’s not uncommon for a name or two to leak out ahead of time. We’ll keep you posted on that.
Fayetteville Roots Festival is set for Aug. 21-24, 2014 at various locations around Fayetteville.
