We’ve just learned that bluegrass/old-time band Uncle Earl will be performing at the 2007 Bonnaroo music festival. The festival takes place mid June in Manchester, TN and has become a large and very popular festival in the last few years.
Bonnaroo primarily books rock, alternative (to what?), and jamband acts. Occasionally bluegrass or old-time will be represented by one or two bands during the four days. I’m sure it’s quite an honor for the girls of Uncle Earl to be on the ticket this year.
Other bluegrass/old-time artists on the bill for this year include The String Cheese Incident, Old Crow Medicine Show, and the venerable Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys.
Tickets can be purchased online at bonnaroo.com.
