MUSIKFEST ANNOUNCEMENT - ‘GIRL NAMED TOM’ TO OPEN FOR KELSEA BALLERINI

The Voice 2021 winner will open Kelsea Ballerini’s Musikfest headlining show on Thurs., Aug. 11, 2022

BETHLEHEM, Pa.— Girl Named Tom will open for country music superstar Kelsea Ballerini during ArtsQuest’s flagship festival, Musikfest in 2022. The ACM and iHeartRadio Music award-winning country artist will headline the Wind Creek Steel Stage on Thurs., Aug. 11, 2022. This show, sponsored by media partner Cat Country 96, was originally scheduled for Musikfest in 2020. All previously sold tickets will be honored. For more exclusive ticket access and advance purchase opportunities, become an ArtsQuest member or Circle donor today. ​

The sibling trio band, Girl Named Tom, will bring their modern twist on classic country to fans before Ballerini takes the stage. In 2019, the Ohio- based Girl Named Tom, brothers Caleb and Joshua and sister Bekah, began driving their old minivan across country playing more than 67 shows in 27 cities. The trio built its sound on vocal harmonies with acoustic guitar accompaniment. Their style combines the classics such as Joni Mitchell and Crosby, Stills & Nash with artists of today such as Taylor Swift, The Wailin' Jennys and Adrianne Lenker.

​Overall, an estimated 1,127,000 people attended Musikfest in 2021 and the 11-day festival had an estimated $67 million impact on the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania. This year’s lineup includes Willie Nelson & Family, ALABAMA and Poison. Additional details will be shared throughout the year. Visit musikfest.org for more information.
