    Emmylou Harris, Wanda Jackson, Carolina Chocolate Drops to Perform at 2011 Newport Folk Fest; Discount Presale Tickets Available

    The complete lineup for the 2011 Newport Folk Festival won't be revealed till this Wednesday, March 30, and tickets won't go on sale to the general public till the following day, but Nonesuch Journal readers are in for a special treat: we can now reveal that Emmylou Harris, Wanda Jackson and the Carolina Chocolate Drops will be performing at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, Rhode Island, on Sunday, July 31, and fans now have access to special pre-sales and discounts starting right now by using one of two exclusive promo codes EMMY, WANDA, or DROPS. 

    These discounts are available for a limited time and only good while supplies last. Regular priced tickets will go on sale to the rest of the world on Thursday, March 31, at 10 AM. To get the early bird price for Sunday, July 31, click here and enter one of the promo codes, either EMMY, WANDA, or DROPS. Going both days?

    As part of her ongoing US tour, Wanda Jackson performed a sold-out show at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room in St. Louis last night. Through her performance, says the Riverfront Times, "Jackson made it known that she still is the Queen." For more on Jackson's current US tour, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour. To pick up a copy of her latest album, The Party Ain't Over, produced by Jack White, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    The Carolina Chocolate Drops resume their tour next week at the University of Iowa, where they perform at the Englert Theater on April 7. Two days prior, the group will give a free presentation about their music and its roots at the African American Museum of Iowa. For details of the upcoming tour, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour. The Chicago Sun-Times recently described the song "Short Dress Gal," off the Carolina Chocolate Drops' collaborative EP with Luminescent Orchestrii, as "one helluva song."
