JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — The Britt Music & Arts Festival on Monday revealed the first few artists of the 2021 summer concert series. Organizers announced early this month that concerts would return after a year upended by the coronavirus pandemic.

In the first of two scheduled announcements, Britt said that the concert series will feature classic blues-rockers ZZ Top, Britt fan favorites Pink Martini featuring China Forbes, and the “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight. Other artists announced in the line-up include modern bluegrass-inspired Trampled By Turtles, bluesman Keb’ Mo’ and Band, alternative pop band Fitz & the Tantrums, a night of reggae with the Good Vibes Summer Tour 2021: Rebelution + Special Guests, and classic rockers Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo.

“We are extremely excited that we are able to return to the Britt hill this summer,” says President & CEO, Donna Briggs. “We’re ready to celebrate the ability to gather together again and share the joy of music with friends and community!”

The remainder of the 2021 line-up is expected July 14, preceded by a Britt Festival Orchestra announcement on June 25. A special series of six free Britt Festival Orchestra concerts has already been announced: Brush: Music in the Woodlands, a commissioned piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Caroline Shaw, that will be performed along the Jacksonville Woodlands Trail system above the Britt Pavilion.
