Truth & Salvage Co., a Los Angeles-based band first championed by Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, recently relocated to Nashville and will release their sophomore album Pick Me Up on Megaforce/Sony RED on July 23.
Savannah upstart, the Sweet Thunder Strolling Band, will welcome festivalgoers at 12:30 p.m. with a special performance, with additional surprises planned throughout the day. The local collaborative, spearheaded by percussionist Andrew Hartzell, grew out of a performance at the Flannery O'Connor Birthday Celebration this spring and features Hartzell, Anna Chandler and Philip Reynolds Price and additional guest musicians to be announced.
Local favorites The Accomplices and The Trainwrecks are also confirmed to perform.
Additional touring bands include Savannah Stopover Music Festival alums Field Report and this mountain, the latter of which will unveil a new project called Papa Moon & The Stargazers.
Cedric Burnside, grandson of the legendary blues legend RL Burnside, will bring his unique blend of Hill Country blues to the Bridge View Stage, followed by Nashville's widely praised newcomers Luella and the Sun who revel in foot stomping blues, soul and gospel.
Treetop Shivers, from London, won the 2011 Glastonbury Emerging Sound Competition and have been lauded by Paste, NPR and others for a sound that hearkens back to the 1970's breezy California folk rock scene. The band recently recorded their debut album in Malibu, Calif.
A Midnight Ramble jam session will follow the festival at a space that is still to be announced.
The festival has partnered with Local Farm Bag. The group will curate all of the food for the event focusing on the best and freshest the Lowcountry has to offer. It will include a traditional pig roast and an oyster roast.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now at the Savannah Box Office for $35 for a general admission pass and $55 for a festival pass plus the pig and the oyster roast.
Additional food offerings, beverages and crafts from local vendors will also be available and will be announced later this summer.
