The Allman Brothers may have played their last-ever show in October, but the festival the iconic jam band launched in 2012 lives on. The fourth annual Peach Music Festival is returning to Scranton, Pennsylvania, August 13th through 16th with its most diverse lineup yet.
Gregg Allman will represent the Allmans at the four days of camping and music, and has enlisted two acts as rooted in onstage noodling as they are in their native country music: Willie Nelson & Family and Old Crow Medicine Show. At this stage in his career, Nelson is as much a draw for jam-band fans as he is outlaw-country die-hards, and Old Crow have been towing the line between country, bluegrass and folk since the group’s inception. The string band is nominated for Best Folk Album at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards. “Until Nashville is ready to come to terms with the fact that we’re a country band,” Old Crow’s leader Ketch Secor told Rolling Stone Country recently, “sure, we’ll take a folk Grammy.”
Santana, Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes, Bruce Hornsby, and Bob Weir are also among the headliners. Weir, who will have recently played the final string of shows with the Grateful Dead, in honor of the band’s 50th anniversary, will perform with Billy & the Kids, a group that includes Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann and American Babies singer-guitarist Tom Hamilton. Hamilton, from nearby Philadelphia, is one of many local musicians invited to play Peach Fest. Philly’s G. Love & Special Sauce, Pittsburgh’s Rusted Root and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, bluegrass outfit Cabinet are all on the bill.
Tickets for Peach Music Festival, held at Scranton’s Montage Mountain & Water Park — a ski resort in the winter months — are on sale now.
