The Americana Music Association expands its festival and conference in its 17th year by announcing its most ambitious kickoff event ever featuring The Lumineers at the Ascend Amphitheater Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
“We’re very excited to have the Americana Music Association presenting our show at Ascend Amphitheater. Nashville is a very special place for us, aside from our love of the amazing music scene and history, both our label Dualtone and agent are based there, and it’s where we mixed the new album.” – Wesley Schultz
