The all-ages American Roots Music Festival is a home for musical heritage and modern twists set throughout our beautiful performance spaces, gardens and grounds. With legendary stars and up and coming artists, the festival offers an eclectic mix of folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, blues, early jazz, singer/songwriter, string band, old time, traditional and contemporary roots music – lots of music for everyone to enjoy! The All Day & Evening ticket gives you access to all performances and activities, including Festival headliner Lucinda Williams and opener Parker Millsap. Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams anchor the afternoon festivities. They move freely between blues, country, folk and Celtic styles with expert instrumentals (Larry), big soulful vocals (Teresa), and lovely harmonies (both). When not performing in their own band, you can catch Larry and Teresa playing with Phil Lesh and Friends, the Dirt Farmer Band, and the Midnight Ramble Band. New to the festival this year are the Kristin Andreassen Band (you may know Kristin from her work with Abigail Washburn in the band Uncle Earl, or Aoife O’Donovan in the band Sometymes Why), Jessy Carolina & the Hot Mess (a hot jazz and blues band from Brooklyn), Philadelphia area folk-rock outfit Mason Porter (strong vocal harmonies and acoustic arrangements), and Cole Quest and the City Pickers (pure bluegrass high energy).
