Staples, renowned for her work through the '60s and '70swith her family band the Staples Sisters, recently popped back up on the critically acclaimed radar thanks to a new effort called You Are Not Alone, which Wilco's Jeff Tweedy produced -- and to fine results.
Staples is just one of the festival's recent additions in the past few days. In addition to the 15 touring acts announced as playing the festival so far (see the full list after the jump), the festival has also announced that it will be hosting a screening of former Paste scribe Steve LaBate and filmmaker Scott Sloan's 40 Nights of Rock & Roll, which readers may recall from when the duo stopped through the region for some filming back in late May.
