Kelsey Waldon, Katie Pruitt, Tristen, Devon Gilfillian Among Newly-Named SXSW Performers

The South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) has announced a second round of Showcasing Artists invited to perform at the 34th annual event, set for March 16-22, 2020 in Austin, Texas.

Among the newly-announced performers are Nashville artists Kelsey Waldon, Katie Pruitt, Tristen, and Devon Gilfillian.

Waldon recently signed with John Prine’s Oh Boy Records and released the album White Noise/White Lines in October. In 2018, Pruitt released the live EP Ourvinyl. She has been named NPR’s Slingshot Artist for 2019 and was also featured on All Song’s Considered for her song “Grace Has A Gun,” and has opened tours for Anderson East and Ruston Kelly. Tristen recently released “Dream Within A Dream,” based on the classic poem from Edgar Allan Poe. She released the project Sneaker Waves in 2017, and has toured with artists including Vanessa Carlton and Robyn Hitchcock. Gilfillian had an opening slot on Brothers Osborne’s tour earlier this year, and performed as part of the Pilgrimage Festival.

SXSW is where the entertainment, technology, and media industries converge, and the Music Festival gives forward-thinking minds the inspiration to shape the future of the creation, performance and business of music.
