As we've been telling you
, Folk Yeah
— the annual Americana music event curated by Orlando roots rocker Mike Dunn
— has been getting bigger and better each time out. Well, this year's fifth edition is a particularly momentous evolution.
For one, it's changing its very name to the Rust + Rebel Music Festival,
adopting the brand that Dunn uses for his impressive and blossoming photography work.
Secondly, the music fest is moving from its longtime residency at Will's Pub to mighty new Sanford venue Tuffy's Music Box
(which I named "Best New Venue"
in this year's Best of Orlando issue). And while Folk Yeah has been gradually incorporating national names onto the marquee, none so far have been nearly as heavyweight as the Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood,
the A-list headliner for this year.
So, yeah, talk about a grand return. The Rust + Rebel Music Festival will take place on Nov. 27
Other featured acts include Honey Hounds, Have Gun Will Travel, Chuck Magid Band, Someday Honey, Jordan Foley & the Wheelhouse, Mike Dunn & the Company, Hannah Harber & the Lionhearts, Cat Ridgeway & the Tourists
and an all-star Tom Petty tribute jam.
Tickets can be purchased at Tuffy’s website.
Tickets are $30 advance and $40 at the door. But as part of a launch-week special, $25 advance tix can be scored from now until October 10th.
