Yesterday, Higher Ground Presents and Grace Potter
announced the lineup for the seventh annual Grand Point North
music festival in September. The news likely has many Phish-heads and jam fans "bouncing 'round the room."
Traditionally, Potter headlines both nights of the end-of-summer blowout at Burlington's Waterfront Park — that's a perk of hosting your own music festival. This year, Potter still plays both nights, but Sunday's headlining slot goes to the Trey Anastasio Band
. Supporting the Phish front man are vocalist/trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, drummer Russ Lawton and bassist Tony Markellis.
If that isn't enough to whet your appetite, the other top-billed acts are killer: Dawes
, Mondo Cozmo
, Hurray for the Riff Raff
, Low Cut Connie
and Son Little
, as well as Tank & the Bangas
, the last of whom won National Public Radio's 2017 Tiny Desk Contest
back in March.
And then there's the stellar local lineup: Henry Jamison
, the Welterweights
, Eastern Mountain Time
, Lake Superior
keep things rooted in the 802.
Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17. Visit grandpointnorth.com
