The initial round of female artists slated to join the relaunched Lilith Fair for Summer Oh-Ten was impressive enough — Sarah McLachlan, Miranda Lambert, Janelle Monae, Mary J. Blige, Emmylou Harris, and lots more comprised an eclectic group exciting enough to guarantee my attendance. A second round of names came out today, lending some serious emotional heft and historical weight to the sisterhood: Cat Power, the Gossip, Norah Jones, Beth Orton, and the double lemme-show-you-children-how-it’s-done whammy of Loretta Lynn and Heart. This is already something I am willing to go crazy on, Mixers — and they say there are more “major” artists yet to be announced! (Might those include names like Swift, Clarkson, or Pink?)
