Bipolar weather got ya down? Yeah, me, too. When I left the house this morning, I wasn't sure if I should wear a T-shirt since it was 60 degrees, a raincoat for the impending afternoon monsoon, or a parka for the snow we'll get this evening. In a related story, I hate April in Vermont.

Fortunately, the fine folks from the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival, with an assist from Higher Ground Presents, were kind enough to brighten my inbox this morning with little ray of musical sunshine: a press release announcing the headlining acts for this year's fest.

As usual, the LCMF will draw some marquee talent to Burlington's Waterfront Park. This year, the lineup includes jam stalwarts Umphrey's McGee on Thursday, August 7, Americana favorites the Avett Brothers on Saturday, August 9, and blues icon Buddy Guy on Sunday, August 10. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, April 18.  

Some other tidbits from the release include the announcement of the 29th Antique and Classic Boat Show and Parade and something called Stand Up for the Lake, the latter of which we can only assume involves local comics telling jokes on paddleboards. Or something.

Anyhoo, here's a recent video from the Avett Brothers, for their tune, "Morning Song."
