CLARK – Train, whose smash hit single, “Hey, Soul Sister,” has been the soundtrack of the summer of 2010, has been confirmed to headline the 13th annual Union County MusicFest’s Saturday lineup on Sept. 11.
“Hey, Soul Sister” comes from Train’s newest album “Save Me, San Francisco.” The song reached #3 on The Billboard Hot 100, where it is currently in the top 20 after more than 40 weeks on the chart. It is just the latest in a string of blues and folk-infused rock megahits from Train the double-platinum, Grammy Award winning band, whose other big hits include “Meet Virginia,” “Calling All Angels,” and “Drops of Jupiter.”
MusicFest is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, and Sunday, Sept. 12, at Union County’s Oak Ridge Park in Clark. The event features two full days of free music and many added attractions including The Union County Fair at MusicFest, a five-day carnival starting on Wednesday, Sept. 8. Approximately 70,000 fans visited MusicFest last year.
Along with Train, the Saturday lineup includes previously announced performers The Bravery, Soul Asylum, OK Go, Jesse Malin and The St. Marks Social, Mike Peters & Friends, Willie Nile, and 61 North.
Spoon headlines the Sunday slate, joined by The Zombies, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Suzanne Vega, the Nils Lofgren Acoustic Duo, and Nicole Atkins.
Pop sensation Vita Chambers will perform a free concert at The County Fair at MusicFest on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The show is part of Family Day, when fairgoers can purchase a value-priced all-day wristband for the amusement rides.
