Spring is almost here, so it’s time to start thinking about
summer music festivals. One festival
that looks very promising is the Red Wing
July 11, 12 and 13 in Mt. Solon, VA, which is
located in the Shenandoah Valley sort of between Harrisonburg and Staunton – a beautiful part
of Virginia. The lineup is pretty stellar and tickets are
on sale now.
Now in its 2nd year, Red Wing Roots Festival was started in
2013 by The Steel Wheels, one of the
rising stars of the Americana/Roots Music circuit. The idea was to
|The Steel Wheels|
create a positive, inclusive, family-friendly
environment to celebrate roots music, camping and outdoor activities such as
biking, swimming, and hiking. Natural
Chimneys Park and Campground was chosen as the location for the festival.
Some of the artists I’m particularly excited about include
Tim O’Brien, Pokey LaFarge, Peter Rowan, Furnace Mountain Band, The Steel
Wheels, Mandolin Orange, The Stray Birds, The Devil Makes Three and Yarn. The full lineup can be seen here
Our regional area is chock full of great annual campout
festivals, including Shakori Hills, Floyd Fest, Watermelon Park, The Festy and
more, but Red Wing Roots looks like a great one to add to that list!
