Newport, RI - The Planners for Newport Folk 51 are about to officially unveil their 2010 Summer Lineup and we figured we would beat them to the punch. It's amazing what a little research can do for a music blogger. As for the bands: As with last year's stellar mix of bands both old and new - the fit will be great and there will be something for everybody.

We are only going to reveal bands tonight that we are absolutely positive will play the festival based on news bulletins and secret pre-sales codes provided to the bands by the Festival Planners allows them to buy their tickets early... Basically ladies and gents: these kids are completely confirmed:

Andrew Bird
only summer 2010 date in the USA *

* meh, Bird just beat me to this one.
I had concluded as much earlier based on his
"open dates" coinciding exactly with Folk.
