Grammy Winner Shawn Colvin, Joe Purdy Join Callaway Gardens' Harvest Moon Festival Line-up

Act Soon - Early Bird Weekend Pass Price of $69 Ends August 31st; Overnight Accommodations are Filling Up

The Callaway Gardens Harvest Moon Festival is adding to its stellar musical lineup. Having already announced the likes of The B-52s, The Gin Blossoms and John Hiatt, the festival now includes multiple Grammy-winning Shawn Colvin.

Early Bird Weekend Passes for $69 will be available for purchase only through August 31. Beginning September 1, the price goes up to $79 for advance weekend passes. Gate price during the event will be $85. This family-friendly music festival October 6-9, 2011, also features celebrity chef Claire Robinson, host of the Food Network’s popular “5 Ingredient Fix.”

Shawn Colvin, who has won three Grammy Awards of an incredible ten nominations, is an iconic singer-songwriter who is perhaps most famous for her 1997 chart-topper “Sonny Came Home.” With this announcement of Colvin’s addition to the event, the Festival also is announcing the daily lineup. The Thursday evening Harvest Feast ($62 per person) will feature a cooking demonstration by Claire Robinson, followed by a double-bill of Atlanta musician Nic Cowan and popular recording artist Joe Purdy. Friday boasts some big names with The B-52s, Shawn Colvin, Parachute, Dread Clampitt and Allgood among the acts scheduled to appear. Saturday showcases the bulk of the musical lineup, with the Gin Blossoms, John Hiatt, Shawn Mullins, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and Mat Kearney among the biggest names to appear on the festival’s two stages.

The four-day festival is a celebration of the harvest and of man and nature’s fruitful coexistence, combining farm-to-table foods, eco-centric vendors, cooking and gardening demonstrations, fun and educational activities for children, and of course, this unprecedented lineup of big-name bands.
