Ranky Tanky – Sony Hall (NYC)

The Billboard chart-topping champions of South Carolina’s Gullah music, and now GRAMMY nominees (Best Regional Roots Album), extend their Good Time tour into 2020. The band’s “soulful honey to the ears” (NPR) channels the spirit of their tight-knit, West African-rooted local community in the Sea Islands, also drawing inspiration from regional heroes like Bessie Jones and the field recordings of Alan Lomax. According to Garden & Gun, “If it doesn’t get you moving, you might want to check your heartbeat.”

Prince will play old material and preview his upcoming Glassnote debut, Reliever, out February 7th. Steeped in the music of Johnny Cash and Notorious B.I.G., Prince turned heads at Stagecoach last year, delivering “one of the most captivating performances of the weekend” (LA Times).

Illiterate Light – Rough Trade (Brooklyn, NY)

While touring with Rainbow Kitten Surprise and The Head And The Heart, Jake Cochran (stand-up drum kit) and Jeff Gorman (guitar, loops, synth tones) have been winning over crowds with their “hypnotic” (Billboard) performances and “electrifying” (Uproxx) stage presence. Despite being one of the festival’s earliest acts, they even received a standing ovation at Newport Folk Fest. They now headline this 2020 tour following the release of their self-titled debut on Atlantic.
