Husband and wife duo Shovels & Rope (pictured) will co-headline Tampa’s Whigfest alongside Nashville bluegrass monsters The Infamous Stringdusters in February 2020.

Joining them is a lineup of locals that showcases some of Florida’s best indie-rock and pop (Flipturn, Speak Easy. Oxford Noland), country (Jordan Foley), jazzy-soul (Someday Honey) and Americana (Van Plating, Deb Ruby).

In its seventh year, the Attic Records' Best of the Bay-winning fest (which used to be in St. Petersburg) once again takes place in four Ybor City venues in Ybor City during President’s Day weekend (Whigfest gets it name from the political party of America’s way, way back).

Whigfest w/Infamous Stringdusters/Shovels & Rope/Flipturn/The Currys/Big Daddy Love/Handmade Moments/Someday Honey/Oxford Noland/Helena Kletch/Jordan Foley/Deb Ruby/Van Plating/Cat Ridgeway & the Tourists/Speak Easy/Early James/more. Sun. Feb. 16, $45. Multiple Venues, Ybor City.
