MerleFest Adds Bela Fleck & Jerry Douglas

MerleFest, presented by Window World and scheduled for April 27-30, 2017, is bringing two bluegrass legends to the 30th celebration – banjo master Béla Fleck and The Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas, a supergroup homage to Flatt & Scruggs made up of several of bluegrass’s finest musicians. Both will be playing on Saturday. The inclusion of these two acts underscores MerleFest’s commitment to Doc Watson’s original vision for a “traditional plus” festival, an event that is open to the evolution of tradition and looks for artists that push boundaries, as these performers do. The remainder of the star-packed lineup for MerleFest 2017 includes other artists that embody this crossover, like Zac Brown Band, The Avett Brothers, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Tift Merritt, Leftover Salmon and more.
