Long the heart of the ICONS Festival, this year's line up will surpass any seen before. Performances from the headline acts will take place in the evenings while other artists will perform during the day. From the Black Crowes, Saw Doctors, Nanci Griffith, Dervish, Dropkick Murphys to the all-female, Appalachian revivalists Uncle Earl, produced by the legendary John Paul Jones, the musical performances are designed to impress. Other artists participating in the 2007 ICONS Festival include Altan, Cara Dillon, the Prodigals, Tommy Fleming, Liz Carroll and John Doyle, Paddy Keenan, Niamh Parsons, Mick Moloney, Jimmy Crowley will join newer arrivals like Beoga, Maeve Gilchrist, The Roches, and Antje Duvekot, whose acclaimed breakthrough album was produced by Seamus Egan of Solas. In addition, workshops, jam sessions and special pairings will generate intrigue and unpredictability.
The ICONS Festival takes place August 10, 11 and 12 at the Irish Cultural Center of New England, located at 200 New Boston Drive in Canton, MA. For tickets and information, visit www.iconsfestival.com.
