Featured performances 2011:
- Saturday, July 9 — Headliner
GreenNote welcomes singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson (Come On Get Higher, Car Crash) to perform for all of you. If you’ve never heard him live, it’s a treat for sure, and he’s a classic storyteller and entertainer. To top it off, he releases his new album in June, so he’ll be blowing up at the time and just ripe for the GreenNote pickin’.
- Saturday, July 9 — Special Guest
Our special guest for Saturday of GreenNote this year is Joshua James (Crash This Train), another unique singer-songwriter who will no doubt blow you away. As we’ve learned from concerts in the past, from openers like Jon McLaughlin and James Blunt, sometimes you go to see the headliner and come away remembering the opening act.
