Ask anyone on the mvy staff who's met her: Tift Merritt is delightful.
Funny and charming and such a great songwriter, any day Tift is on the bill, is a good day.
You can hear some of our previous visits with her in the mvyradio Archives, including the Americana Music Conference, Merlefest, The Narrows and Newport Folk 2009.
Tift Merritt comes to Newport Folk 2013, and mvyradio will be there again, participating in NPR Music's coverage. Hear performances live from the stage on mvyradio, July 26th through 28th. And watch this space for more NFF artist previews.
