Railbird Festival

The inaugural Railbird Festival features a solid lineup of rock and roots acts, including Jack White’s band The Raconteurs, Brandi Carlile, Tyler Childers, Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples and several others. The two-day festival is put on by AC Entertainment — the company behind Bonnaroo and Forecastle — and is being held on the grounds of the Keeneland horse track, featuring three stages. My get-to-the-festival-early picks are Ian Noe and Kelsey Waldon, two talented, country-leaning Kentucky singer-songwriters. —Scott Recker
