Rolling Roots Revue
Friday, May 9
Advance: $10, Friends/Students Advance: $6, Day of Show: $14
At least once a year, usually in the Spring, several Wepecket Island Records artists board “Vanessa,” Jack Radcliffe’s 1993 Ford van, and perform in concert halls, churches, houses, libraries, taverns and coffeehouses for three weeks or so. We have toured extensively in the Midwest, the Atlantic Seaboard and the Deep South, and will soon be expanding our reach into the Pacific Northwest. Various members of our troupe hop on and off the “train,” but the company maintains a corps of at least four and as many as nine performers who gleefully spread the word and song of America’s cultural history.
At The ArtsCenter we are expecting Jack, Sherman Lee Dillon, Don Barry, Debbie Palmarini, and the M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio (Jackie Merritt, Miles Spicer, & Resa Gibbs). Rolling Roots Revue shows conclude with an invitation to join in an on-stage jam session and sing-around. Folks who attend the shows don’t just see a good concert, they participate in one! A great blues concert and a celebration of sharing music and friendship all rolling into one wonderful evening.
