NELSONVILLE, Ohio- Stuart’s Opera House is honored to announce that music legend and three time Grammy Award Winner Loretta Lynn will be headlining the 6th annual Nelsonville Music Festival which takes place May 14-16, 2009! Loretta Lynn will be playing on Saturday, May 15th. Also confirmed for 2010 are Todd Snider, Black Joe Lewis, Michael Hurley, Detroit Cobras and Those Darlins. Many more acts will be announced in the coming months. Weekend passes will be available starting Monday, January 4th at 10:00am!

The 6th annual Nelsonville Music Festival will take place May 14-16, 2010 at Robbins Crossing on the campus of Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio. The festival is presented each year by Stuart’s Opera House and past performers have included Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers, Mudhoney, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Jolie Holland, Akron/Family, and many more. In addition to three days of live music of all kinds on multiple stages, the Nelsonville Music Festival also features local art vendors, local food, kids activites, camping, and a beer garden. Weekend passes will go on sale Monday, January 4th at 10:00 a.m. with the first 250 passes ONLY $35! After the first 250, weekend passes will go up to $40 until March 1st after which the price will raise to $45 and continue going up each month until reaching the price of $60 at the festival gate. Single day tickets will be available starting in March.

This year Stuart’s is thrilled to announce country music living legend Loretta Lynn as the headliner for Saturday night! Loretta will join Todd Snider, Black Joe Lewis, Michael Hurley, Detroit Cobras, and Those Darlins as confirmed acts for the 2010 Nelsonville Music Festival, with many more to be announced as we get closer to the festival. For over four decades now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful—and as culturally significant—as any female performer you’d care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner’s Daughter—the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself—has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. Lynn also recently worked with Jack White on her 2004 critically acclaimed album Van Lear Rose. Loretta Lynn continues to amaze audiences with her live show, still continuing to keep a busy schedule of live performances.

The 6th annual Nelsonville Music Festival will take place on May 14-16, 2010 at Robbins Crossing on the campus of Hocking College and will feature headliner Loretta Lynn on Saturday, May 15th. Also confirmed for this year are Todd Snider, Black Joe Lewis, Michael Hurley, Detroit Cobras, and Those Darlins with many more to be announced. Weekend passes will be available on Monday, January 4th at 10am, and the first 250 passes sold will only be $35!

    Thanks for posting this, It’s just what I was looking for on google. I’d much rather hear opinions from an individual, rather than a corporate site, that’s why I like blogs so much. Thanks!
