Roots Music is hard to define. It’s part folk, part jazz, part blues, maybe country or a whole lot more. Perhaps the easiest way to describe it, says Bryan Hembree of 3 Penny Acre, is just to know it has its own roots in American styles of music.
The one-day festival is the product of 3 Penny Acre, a local roots band that has played throughout the country and gained like-sounding friends along their travels.
The festival begins at 10:30 a.m. for a free preview session before taking a quick break and returning at 5 p.m.
Here’s the full schedule:
10:30 a.m. to noon â Songwriters in the Round with Effron White, David Glaser and Charlie Roth. Free.
12:30-2 p.m. â Songwriters in the Round with Shannon Wurst, Johann Wagner and Ryan Spearman. Free.
5 p.m. â Doors open for paid portion of festival
5:30-6:15 p.m. â Doug and Telisha Williams
6:20-7:05 p.m. â Nora Jane Struthers
7:10-7:55 p.m. â Raina Rose, Anthony Da Costa and John Elliot
8-8:45 p.m. â The Honey Dewdrops
8:50-9:35 p.m. â 3 Penny Acre
9:40-10 p.m. â Grand finale jam
