The ninth annual Halifax Urban Folk Festival, AKA the acoustic-tinged farewell kiss to summer, has announced the first three names on its lineup today. The fest, which is held at a few spots around town but primarily housed at The Carleton, is headlined by Hey Rosetta!'s (RIP) frontperson Tim Baker, Nashville singer-songwriter Lilly Hiatt and former Crash Test Dummies frontperson Brad Roberts. Tickets for these three acts will be available Friday, June 22 at halifaxurbanfolkfestival.com and the rest of the fest's lineup will be shared in the coming weeks.
