JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — On Friday, the Britt Music & Arts Festival announced the first few shows in its 2020 "Britt Presents" season. Frequent Britt-goers will recognize some familiar names, in addition to some new ones.
In the first of three eventual announcements, Britt named Tanya Tucker — a classic country artist awarded two Grammys this past January — modern bluegrass-inspired acoustic jam band Trampled By Turtles, the "Once in a Lifetime Tour" headlined by reggae artist Stick Figure, Britt fan favorites Pink Martini featuring lead vocalist China Forbes, and Michael Franti & Spearhead, returning for their 15th year in a row.
