Black Potatoe Festival announces 2018 lineup

Black Potatoe 2018

Radney Foster performs at the Black Potatoe Music Festival, July 12.

Radney Foster, Willy Porter, The Matt Angus Thing, Ellis Paul, the Grace Morrison Trio and Nalani & Sarina will be among the performers at this year’s Black Potatoe Music Festival, taking place July 12-15 on two stages on the grounds of the Red Mill Museum in Clinton.

Discounted early-bird tickets are currently available at blackpotatoe.com.

In a message sent out today to email subscribers, announcing the lineup, festival organizers said: “Each year we walk the delicate balance of bringing in new bands, established national acts, local favorites and bringing back bands that were new to the area, but have already played the festival, and we are bringing them back. This year the balance feels great. We have always focused on the artists that write great songs, so this year we are happy to have award winning songwriter Radney Foster on Thursday night. Radney has written songs for Keith Urban and the Dixie Chicks, just to name a couple, and it will be a great way to start off the festival.”
