Rickie Lee Jones was just tapped to co-headline Swallow Hill's RootsFest with Hot Rize and Leo Kottke tomorrow night at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Shawn Colvin, who was originally scheduled to perform, had to back out due to an unforeseen family emergency. Other acts at the fest include Tallest Man on Earth, Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, Joe Pug and Boulder Acoustic Society. The show starts at 6 p.m sharp and tickets are $55-$125.
