    NELSONVILLE, Ohio- Stuart’s Opera House presents the 9th annual Nelsonville Music Festival on May 30th -June 2nd, 2013 at Robbins Crossing on the campus of Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio. The first round of announcements for this years lineup includes one of the biggest bands in rock and roll, Wilco who will headline the festival on Saturday, June 1 and folk legend John Prine will close the festival out on Sunday, June 2nd. Other acts currently announced include Reigning Sound, Cotton Jones, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Nick Tolford and Company, The D-Rays, and The County Pharaohs with many, many more to still be announced. The 9th annual Nelsonville Music Festival will feature 4 days of music featuring over 40 bands on multiple stages all weekend long along with camping, kids activities, local artisan vendors, food, a beer garden, and much more. Weekend passes for all four days will go on sale to the public on Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 10:00am for $90, the price will raise from there until the gate price the weekend of the festival of $130 for a weekend pass.

    From its raucous roots-rock origins, Wilco over the years has expanded its sound to encompass classic pop and genre-spanning experimentalism in the process becoming one of the most acclaimed rock and roll bands around. After seven studio albums, a Grammy, various collaborations and countless days on the road for almost two decades, Wilco tried something new and took a long vacation before releasing their 8th album The Whole Love in 2011 on their own label, dBpm Records. The new album is the latest step in the ongoing evolution of Wilco, which Tweedy founded in 1994 after the dissolution of his previous group, alt-country standard- bearers Uncle Tupelo. Called “America’s foremost rock impressionists” by Rolling Stone, we are excited to welcome Wilco to headline 2013’s Nelsonville Music Festival.

    Some four decades since his remarkable debut, John Prine has stayed at the top of his game, both as a performer and songwriter. Recently honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, he’s been elevated from the annals of songwriters into the realm of bonafide American treasures. Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” John Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for. “He’s so good, we’re gonna have to break his fingers,” Kris Kristofferson once said after being justifiably stunned by a Prine performance. Evidence of this is the long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from his extensive catalog, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, and many others. His most recent release is The Singing Mailman Delivers, a two-disc archival release featuring the earliest studio and live recordings from Prine dating back to 1970, one year before that prolific debut album.

    Also announced so far for 2013: Asheville garage-punk band Reigning Sound, Cumberland’s Cotton Jones, Portland Oregon’s Wooden Indian Burial Ground, and Ohio acts Nick Tolford and Company, The D-Rays, and The County Pharaohs. Many more to be announced!

    Described by Andrew Bird from stage in 2012 as being “a hell of a lot better than Coachella”, the Nelsonville Music Festival continues to be one of the best in the region and one of the most unique music festivals in the country. Set in the beautiful, rolling hills of Southeast Ohio, this small and intimate festival continues to gain fans who want a music festival with a more personal experience. Catch live music on multiple stages including a small “no-fi” cabin and a picturesque “porch” stage in addition to our main stage. We take pride in offering a warm, accepting environment where local artisans can sell and be recognized for their work, where local, regional and national musicians instill their awe-inspiring talents and festival goers can relax and enjoy the fruits of our regional flavor. The Nelsonville Music Festival offers multiple stages of music all weekend long along with camping on site, kids activities, local art vendors, food, and a beer garden. Past performers have included The Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, The Avett Brothers, Iron & Wine, Andrew Bird, Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, George Jones, M.Ward, and many more. The Nelsonville Music Festival is a production of Stuart’s Opera House, a historic, non-profit theater located in Nelsonville that features over 75 events a year including live music, theater, films, educational programming and more.
