Justin Townes Earle, Chatham County Line, Onward Soldiers, and more to play Beaufort Music Festival

Justin Townes Earle will be headlining the free Beaufort
Music Festival, held May 13-14, 2011 in Beaufort, NC
Beaufort Music Festival has always had their finger on the pulse of the music scene in North Carolina, picking some of the finest local acts for their festival, and this year will be no different.  For the 23rd year, Beaufort, NC will be home to an incredible and free two-day music festival that will be held on May 13 and 14 this year with day one being headlined by Chatham County Line, the Raleigh based bluegrass group, and day two being headlined by Justin Townes Earle, the incredibly talented son of legendary Steve Earle.

The headliners aren't the only prominent names sticking out on Beaufort Music Festival's lineup though, Wilmington's Onward, Soldiers, the indie rock band that's oozing with Americana and country will also be playing on day two.  Acts such as Jeanne Jolly, the Carolina singer-songwriter with a jazzy voice that's been featured as a vocalist with Grammy winning trumpeter Chris Botti, will be playing on Friday night before Chatham County Line graces the stage.  This is just covering the tip of the lineup, with more acts to be announced on the Local Stage as well it will be interesting to see who the festival brings to the already solid lineup.  The lineup can be found below:
