greenapplemusicfest.jpegThe Green Apple Music & Arts Festival continues to grow.

As we previously reported, the Green & Arts Festival has expanded to three cities for 2007, and will take place April 20-22 in Chicago, New York , and San Francisco. Some additional shows have been announced, including several add-ons to the free shows being played in each city.

In Chicago, the free Day event at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, has expanded to include Big Head Todd (Todd’s solo project), Mad Professor, , Etta Jenkins, and the Blisters (a pre-teen band featuring ’s two sons). The event — which already included Umphrey’s McGee, the , and the Paul Green — runs from 10AM – 5:30PM on Sunday, April 22nd ( available at the Lincoln Park Zoo website).

The festivities in New York have also expanded to include several free shows outside Grand Central Station (on Vanderbilt Ave), including performances by (w/ guitarist Chad Urmston), Assembly of Dustas well as Paul Green’s Allstars with ’s (w/ Gandalf Murphy and Slambovian Circus of Dreams).
