MerleFest, the popular Americana music festival founded by the legendary Doc Watson, will give music lovers in the Roanoke area a sneak peak of this spring's festival when it brings MerleFest on the Road, an ensemble show of bands in its lineup, to Harvester Performance Center on Friday, March 4.  These bands will perform at MerleFest on the Road:  
   
Tellico is firmly planted in Asheville, N.C.'s thriving roots music scene.  The band is well schooled in bluegrass but with an unbridled organic "Appalachiacana" sound, combining some of the finest voices, songs and instrumental prowess in Western North Carolina and beyond. MerleFest fans know most of the band members from Dehlia Low. www.tellicoband.com  
   
High Plains Jamboree is making its own jukebox memories, playing decades old favorites and songs band members wrote.  With roots in northern bluegrass and southern troubadour country, these four veteran Austin, Texas, musicians bring to this new string band a distinct Texas flavor to their writing and singing. www.highplainsjamboree.com  
   
Steve Johnson, artist relations director for MerleFest, said "We are delighted to present some of the finest artists who will join us for this year's festival.  So many MerleFest regulars can hardly wait for every April to arrive - and now they don't have to!  We believe that the fans who come out to MerleFest on the Road will be more enthusiastic than ever for the festival."  This year's edition of MerleFest will take place from April 28 to May 1 on the campus of Wilkes  
Community College in Wilkesboro, N.C., where MerleFest on the Road artists will be joined by John Prine, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Steep Canyon Rangers and many others.  Further information about the festival is at www.merlefest.org.
