Lake Street Dive, Los Lobos to play Clearwater Festival

January 18, 2017

The Clearwater Festival is back!

FIRST ROUND OF ARTISTS ANNOUNCED!

We’re excited to give you an early look at our confirmed artists for this year!

Keeping Pete and Toshi’s legacy alive, it’s always been a goal for the Festival’s line-up to be diverse. This year, now more than ever, it’s even more important to come together and celebrate diversity!
Four of our favorite bands will return this year – Lake Street Dive, Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo and Toshi Reagon and BIGLovely!

They’ll be joined by acts performing at Clearwater for the first time including guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel, modern day songster, minstrel and bluesman, Blind Boy Paxton and The Suitcase Junket, the throat-singing, slide guitar playing one-man-band.

Longtime Clearwater friends returning include Tom Paxton & The DuanJuans, Holly Near, Tom Chapin, Guy Davis, David Amram, Josh White Jr., The Kennedys, Martha Redbone Roots Project and The Vanaver Caravan.

As part of our mission to present artists from around the world, these acts will also be making their Clearwater debut – Ukrainian folk-fusion troupe Dakhabrakha; amazing salsa band Jimmy Bosch Y Su Sexteto del Otro Mundo; A-WA, three Israeli sisters who combine Yemenite folk singing with electronic dance music; and Plena Libre, the great Puerto Rican plena and bomba group.
