(June 19, 2016) – Pack a picnic and join the fun for Caramoor’s annual romp exploring an eclectic mix of folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, blues, creole, singer/songwriter, string band, old time, and everything in-between. Enjoy memorable tunes, great eats, good friends, comfortable bathrooms, free parking, and 90 acres of historic gardens and architectural treasures ripe for exploration.
This season, the all-ages American Roots Music Festival offers up several riveting headline artists on the verge of stardom. Hurray For The Riff Raff – led by the charismatic Alynda Segarra – hails from New Orleans and mixes doo-wop, blues, and honky-tonk into unforgettable, effortlessly catchy performances garnering praise from the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, NPR, CMT, and elsewhere. Returning fan favorite John Fullbright brings his deeply personal, gripping song writing and playing, joining “the lineage of terse Southwestern songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark … reaching for unassailable clarity.” (New York Times) After a sold out I’m With Her performance here last summer, Sara Watkins (also of Nickel Creek fame) shares her new band and new tunes with us in an early preview.
Gates open at 11:00am.
