13-Year-Old Charlie Dane Added To Mountain Jam Festival
"I think that it's awesome to be included to perform on the same stage with so many big names in music" Charlie said "playing Mountain Jam is going to be so much fun and is one of so many amazing things that are happening for me this year"
Gov't Mule will headline Friday and Saturday nights, with the legendary Steve Winwood headlining Sunday night following performances by Michael Franti & Spearhead, Dawes, and the just-added Tedeschi Trucks Band, hot off the heels of their recent Grammy Award for Best Blues Album for their 2011 release, Revelator. Also added to the Mountain Jam 2012 lineup is a very special latenight DJ Set from James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), as well as an after-hours set from electronic jam-band, Lotus, back for their third Mountain Jam appearance.
Charlie Dane is truly a star on the rise, opening up for Eric Krasno at Sullivan Hall and for Papa Grows Funk at Hiro Ballroom at a benefit to help Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp as well as several times at The Bitter End in NYC from the recognition that she received at their "Chick Singer Night" series. Charlie has appeared on stage as a duet with the great George Porter Jr and the Runnin Pardners. She also opened up for Radiators members playing as Raw Oyster Cult at AOA in NYC.
The past two summers, Charlie has been playing at music festivals such as South By Southwest, Gathering Of The Vibes, Great South Bay Music Festival, Equifunk, the 27 and 28th annual Oyster Festivals as well as for Camps R Us and Girl Scout Summer Camps.
