12B Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter High Sierra Music announces initial lineup for festival High Sierra Music recently announced the initial lineup for the 25th annual High Sierra Music Festival, running July 2 - 5 at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy. This year's silver anniversary will celebrate the festival's history and everyone who helped create and sustain the laidback family-friendly vibe High Sierra is known for, say organizers. It was a very long wait, but after 16 years, festival organizers say they are excited to announce the return of String Cheese Incident to the High Sierra stage headlining with two full shows over two nights. String Cheese Incident first played High Sierra in 1996. The band's members and longtime fans see the performances at the festival from 1996 to 1999 as the events that propelled the band on the West Coast and around the world. From epic late-night tent sets to infamous "pool parties," String Cheese Incident certainly made its indelible mark on the psyche of High Sierra fans. This year's lineup honors many of the artists who have been a part of the fabric of the festival over the years. Artists like The Slip, Surprise Me Mr. Davis, Galactic, ALO, the Living Daylights, Dan Bern and many others to be announced have all played High Sierra spanning three decades. The initial artist lineup includes String Cheese Incident for two nights/four sets, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Galactic, Shovels and Rope, The Wood Brothers, ALO, Nahko and Medicine for the People, The California Honeydrops, Barr Brothers, Pimps of Joytime, Surprise Me Mr. Davis, March Fourth Marching Band, The Slip, Omaha Diner featuring Charlie Hunter, Skerik, Bobby Previte and Steven Bernstein, Lukas Nelson and Promise of The Real, Rising Appalachia, Turkuaz, Steve Poltz, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Living Daylights, Dan Bern, the Brothers Comatose and Midnight North. Artist additions will be announced in the coming weeks. The High Sierra Music Festival began in Leland Meadows in 1991. It moved to Bear Valley in 1994, and was held there through 1997 and again in 1999. Persistent snow accumulations prompted an urgent need to move the Festival in 1998 and the fairgrounds in Quincy proved an ideal choice. High Sierra acknowledges and thanks the ongoing support the residents of Quincy and Plumas County give each and every year.
