Folk singer Patty Griffin to headline Red Ants Pants

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Organizers say Grammy-winning folk singer Patty Griffin will headline the Red Ants Pants Music Festival in central Montana this summer.
The Great Falls Tribune reports apparel company Red Ants Pants owner Sarah Calhoun announced the lineup last week for the 9th annual festival on July 25-28 in White Sulphur Springs.
Calhoun says Griffin is known for her stripped-down songwriting and pure vocals.
Griffin’s gospel album, “Downtown Church,” won a Grammy in 2011. Her folk album, “Servant of Love,” was nominated in 2016.
Musicians Bobby Bare and Shakey Graves are also set to perform as well as more than dozen other bands and musicians.
The festival had 18,000 attendees last year, increasing from the 6,000 recorded in the event’s first year.
