10 Americana, Alt-Country, Bluegrass and Folk Artists to Watch in 2017

The year 2016 was a famously reviled one, but it’s in the rear window now, and it’s time to look ahead to what 2017 will bring. Among the things worth looking forward to? What’s to come from a number of talented new (or, in some cases, semi-new) artists.

As a group, The Boot’s 10 Americana, alt-country, bluegrass and folk artists to watch are masters at their craft, and fans should be excited to hear more from them throughout the next 12 months (and beyond). Some are long-established acts just starting to get recognized, while others are singers debuting their first album.

Flip through the photo gallery above to learn more about each of The Boot’s Americana, alt-country, bluegrass and folk artists to watch for 2017.
