Former Tallahassee City Commissioner and acclaimed author in his own right, Mark Mustian released the news today (Monday, 7/24).

"We're proud to announce way in advance this year our musical headliner for Word of South for 2018, which will be - drum roll - the Tedeschi/Trucks Band and it's someone we've wanted for years!" Mustian exclaimed. "They're one of the best live acts in the nation."

And because of that superstar status, Mustian urged festival-goers to get their tickets fast, even though the festival is aways off.

"It's April 13-15 next year, but the tickets for the Teseschi/Trucks show go on sale Friday (July 28) at noon and we expect it to sell out. So if you want to go, you need to get a ticket early."

The rest of the festival, including national and local writers and other top-notch musical acts is free.
