The Fall edition of Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival in Silk Hope is set for Oct. 8-11, a little less than two months away. This morning, festival organizers announced the first 27 acts of this season's celebration.  The big names so far are the usual suspects—The Duhks, The Gourds, festival founders Donna the Buffalo. Among the most exciting acts in this initial batch, though, are young locals stretching beyond Shakori's Hills Americana roots—eclectic hip-hoppers The Beast, melancholy Trekky kids Butterflies, the steamy soul of the Howie Dewitt Band—and national acts like The Belleville Outfit and Casey Driessen & the Colorfools, both of which never met a genre they couldn't integrate. Also notable: Chatham County Lines, Christabel and the Jons, Midtown Dickens, Mosadi Music and new band Good-Timin'-Campin' Hackney Farm Family Band Super Groove Ritual Joint.
