In the end, the Minnesota Zoo will have some fresh faces for its music series, after all.

Just added since Monday’s announcement are Kacey Musgraves, the Grammy-winning country upstart known for “Follow Your Arrow,” on July 9, and Irish bard James Vincent McMorrow on Aug. 24.

A couple of outstanding pickers – mandolin ace Ricky Skaggs and guitar hero Ry Cooder – will share the bill on July 16.

The addition of Musgraves means theSalt-n-Pepa concert at the zoo's  has been moved to July 8.

For the full lineup, see Monday’s story.

VIP box seats will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday, standing-room tickets at 10 a.m. April 24 and all tickets at 10 a.m. April 25.
