Britt adds two shows

Britt Festivals has announced the addition of two shows to this summer's concert lineup.

Folk rock singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will perform Aug. 31, and Michael Franti, already scheduled for an evening performance on Aug. 21, will add a children's matinee.

Carlile has toured continually since the release of her debut album in 2005, visiting the Britt hillside in 2007 and 2010. Tickets to this year's show cost $34 for lawn seats and $45 for reserved seats for adults. Children's tickets cost $23.

Michael Franti & Friends will perform a family show at 2 p.m. Aug. 21, prior to his evening show with his band Spearhead. Gates for the afternoon show will open at 12:30 p.m. Tickets cost $14.50 per person, and are free for children 2 and under.

The Franti children's concert is the third children's concert booked for the 2012 season, Britt officials said. Patrons can buy a family concert package that included admission to each of those shows for $27.50 per person, which offers a $2 discount per concert.

Tickets for both added concerts will be available to members Tuesday, May 1. General public sales for all Britt concerts begin Thursday, May 17.
