Though this freakishly warm fall has winter feeling falsely far away, In The Dead of Winter Festival reminded us today that the snow is a-comin'—but luckily for us, so is the awesome singer-songwriter-focused festival with its folk-rock-Americana stylings.

The fest quietly put tickets on sale this morning for a slew of shows, including the trademark Songcircles, which sees much of the lineup share songs and stories in a more relaxed, intimate setting at Good Robot Brewing.

Also on deck? Waxahatchee at The Marquee, delivering the sonic equivalent of Mayan chocolate (sweet, rich, yet intensely fiery) to your frostbitten ears.

We’re also marking shows with Kaia Kater, an African-Canadian banjo player dedicated to sharing Old Time tunes with the masses, and the Boston-based Palehound, a lyrically-fuelled, emotionally-vast alternative group, to our calendar. Check out a video from Palehound’s latest album, A Place I’ll Always Go, below:

The fest runs January 18-20 with shows happening across the city and you can check out more at inthedeadofwinter.com.
