[image-1]Miss out on 2017’s inaugural High Water Festival? Well, that sucks — nothing we can do about that. It was a memorable weekend full of stellar moments, like a mid-afternoon day-maker performance from the late Charles Bradley, the glorious, too-good-to-be-true Lucius and Shovels & Rope’s cover of Elvis Costello’s “Peace, Love and Understanding,” and a Shrimp Record hootenanny to remind us of the fantastic talent Charleston continues to breed. But never fear — by the looks of today’s lineup announcement,  fest founders and curators Shovels & Rope mean to make the 2018 edition count, too. Oh, yes they do.

Without further ado, next year’s High Water Festival lineup includes:
Jason Isbell
Band of Horses
Shovels & Rope
Brandi Carlile
Jeff Tweedy
St Paul and the Broken Bones
Shakey Graves
M. Ward
Hamilton Leihauser
Valerie June
Tank & The Bangas
Old 97’s
Nicole Atkins
Shrimp Records Family Band
Ian Felice
The Wild Reeds
Joshua Hedley
T. Hardy Morris
