Performers for the newly re-christened Twilight Americana Music Festival, which, we recently reported, takes place Apr. 25-28 at a variety of downtown venues, have been announced. The list includes some heavy-hitters, including Leon Russell, Leftover Salmon and Deer Tick, as well as a slew of notable locals: Mike Cooley, Lera Lynn, The Corduroy Road, The Darnell Boys, Jim White, Little Country Giants, Dave Marr, Don Chambers, The Kenney-Blackmon String Band, Caroline Herring, Claire Campbell, The Whiskey Gentry, Bain Mattox, Rusty Belle, W.B. Givens and Adam Klein and The Wild Fires.
More artist announcements are said to be forthcoming. For now, watch this video of Leon Russell performing “A Song For You” in 1971 and just sigh, ’cause that’s all you can really do.
