The linup for Belfast's Open House Festival has now been confirmed and it's a real corker. For Americana fans, this is the gig of the year.
Kicking off will be The Dave Rawlings Machine, fronted by long-time musical partner of Americana singer songwriter Gillian Welch, playing an exclusive Irish debut on Saturday 11th September.
Sharing the stage will be musical compadres, Old Crow Medicine Show, creating the perfect union of “old-time string music and punk swagger.”
But it doesn't stop there. Oh no. Did we mention:
THE LOW ANTHEM,
THE FELICE BROTHERS

Also, another exciting addition to the festival line-up is Lissie, the “guitar toting Americana lovechild”, marking her first visit to Belfast. She appears on Wednesday 8th September in the intimate surroundings of McHughs basement bar, with new local boys Napoleon.
The 12th annual Open House Festival will take place from 7th – 12th September 2010, throughout the arts & cultural flavoured Cathedral Quarter. The main festival venue will be the new 2,000 capacity festival marquee in Custom House Square – the biggest music marquee ever to be erected on the site.
