Vail Soul Music Fest Announces Line-Up

Vail Soul Music Fest, happening August 19-20-21, 2011 at Ford Amphitheater in the majestic mountains of Vail, Colorado, today announces its artist lineup.

Four time Grammy nominee Ledisi, soul royalty Lalah Hathaway, and genre-bending Cuban singer-songwriter Alex Cuba top the bill during three days and two nights of music. Additional artists include British slam-champion poet and Floetry co-founderNatalie “The Floacist” Stewart, soul revival golden boy Ryan Shaw, and – back by popular demand – mighty R&B singer Liv Warfield, among many others. The full day-by-day lineup is included below. Additional performers will be announced soon for the 2nd annual Vail Soul Music Fest on August 19-20-21 at Ford Amphitheater.

Anticipated by those in the know as the only-of-its-kind in the country, Vail Soul Music Fest is an authentic and stirring celebration of a rich and vibrant international music genre. Offering a hand-picked mix of emerging and established artists – from the greatest R&B legends to ballad hit-makers to conscious hip-hop to neo soul artists from around the world – Vail Soul Music Fest is the face of the modern, multicultural soul revival. Vail Soul Music Fest is bringing the story of soul music back to the people, and it feels oh so good.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
