JJ Grey and Lucero headline US National Whitewater Spring Festival.

The US National Whitewater Center kicks off the spring season and its concert series with Americana and roots rock heavy hitters. Modern bluesman J. J. Grey and Mofro and renowned singer-songwriter Slaid Cleaves perform on the island Coca-Cola Zero stage Friday, April 15th. Saturday, April 16th it's the biting, rootsy rock n' roll of Memphis sextet Lucero (pictured above) and Athens' rockers Bloodkin.

The weekend festivities also include the USA Canoe/Kayak National Team Trials during the day. Music begins at 7 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cover entry into both concerts. $20 advance, $25 day of show, which is actually a good deal considering what you'd pay to see either headliner separately. There are no single day tickets available.
