The Charlie Daniels Band and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are headed to MerleFest 2013, which is slated for April 25-28, 2013, in Wilkesboro, N.C. The four-day festival boasts performances by an estimated 90 artists including Rhonda Vincent, Tift Merritt, Michael Martin Murphey and Matraca Berg. One evening will feature a tribute to the late Doc Watson by Sam Bush and friends.

"This initial lineup shows that the festival will definitely live up to its 'traditional plus' motto, with a strong collection of internationally-known touring artists from many genres, as well as a collection of local North Carolina folk and bluegrass artists," the festival's Steve Johnson says. "And, MerleFest fans know, as the lineup continues to develop in the coming months, it will offer quite a few surprises - let's just say it's going to be a big year!"
