Folk-rock musicians Jackson Browne and Ani DiFranco have been added to the lineup for Grace Potter's Grand Point North festival, taking place September 15-16 at Waterfront Park in Burlington, Vermont. These additions round out the schedule for the event, presented by Higher Ground Music. The festival is a mix of nationally-known groups and regional musicians. Both Browne and DiFranco have Vermont connections, according to the Burlington Free Press, as Browne is godfather to Vermont musician Ariel Zevon. DiFranco started the label Righteous Babe, which in 2010 released the folk-opera album Hadestown, by Vermont musician Anais Mitchell.
