SXSW Announces Speakers for 2006

The 2006 SXSW Music Conference seems to be taking an acoustic/singer-songwriter tack this year. The first round of speakers announced for next year’s conference will include Judy Collins, Kris Kristofferson and Billy Bragg. Still not announced is this year’s keynote speaker (though Kristofferson would certainly be a good candidate). With the conference hitting its 20-year anniversary this year, it has a complete list of keynote speakers on the site (including then-Spin Magazine chief Bob Guccione Jr. What’s he doing nowadays?). Anyone have a guess on who will keynote this year? Perhaps a New Orleans performer? Jerry Lee Lewis? Rod Stewart? Would they have a chance to get Bono or Mick? What other music icon has a big album coming out next year?
