Balsam Range, Jim Lauderdale, John Cowan, Peter Rowan’s Free Mexican Air Force with Los Texmaniacs, Amythyst Kiah, Yasmin Williams and Brittney Spencer round out the list of acts added to the festival’s lineup today. Tedeschi Trucks, Melissa Etheridge, Mavis Staples, LeAnn Rimes and Donna The Buffalo are among previously announced MerleFest 2021 performers.

MerleFest organizers will soon confirm more artists set to play the event. The festival usually takes place in April and will return to its traditional weekend in 2022. However, this year’s MerleFest was postponed to September due to the pandemic.
