Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and Bela Fleck & The Flecktones top off new Shakori Hills lineup additions

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are one
of many new names added to the Shakori
Hills lineup
Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival has made yet another lineup announcement in regards to their October 6-9 fall festival and this one's a big one.  The legendary banjoist Bela Fleck will be joined with the original band of the Flecktones with Victor Wooten on bass, Futureman, and Howard Levy at Shakori this fall.  But possibly the most exciting announcement yet is the addition of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, the soulful funk group led by their powerhouse of a frontwoman Sharon Jones.  However, these two acts are merely two of the exciting names that have been added to an already stellar list including Donna The Buffalo, Eilen Jewell, Toubab Krewe, and Brett Dennen.

Other exciting lineup additions include plenty of high-energy goodness from all over the country.  Bands like Dirty Bourbon River Show, Noot d'Noot and Thousands of One are all bands I've had the pleasure of seeing live before (Thousands of One at the Spring Shakori this year where they absolutely killed it with a Michael Jackson cover) who've got a knack for bringing their a-game to the stage.

Shakori's Early Bird ticket offer was recently extended until this Sunday, August 21 so jump on those discounted tickets while you still can!  More information on Shakori Hills can be found at their website
