I Hear Music ! It’s Rhythm & Roots Festival- Charlestown RI 02813 Sept. 3-5 2010
It’s all happening at the Rhythm & Roots Festival at Ninigret Park in Charlestown RI 02813 Sept. 3-5th 2010. Come on Down Hurricane Earl…. because I do hear great music within this festival of extraordinary music and performers this weekend is coming – no one is going to pass this music by. BUT we’re all hoping Hurricane Earl passes us far to the East! For the money of $50 a day, if you buy your ticket the day of the show, it is a great value to enjoy a full day of performances.
It’s another year for a fun day, weekend & if you like to camp out (ugh!) you can do it all here in one place. Bring your blanket, chair & bodies to a fun loving out door time of amazing artists & music to enjoy. From bluesy grass, cajun to zydeco music..some extraordinary artists are here for all to enjoy…adore that Marcia Ball with that voice! This is one of the performers that brings me to this festival this year.
There are plenty of wonderful vendors cooking up a great line up of cajun & creole food for anyone who wants to partake…you are allowed to bring your own food into the Rhythm & Roots Festival but just NO liquor- bags will be checked at the ticket entrance. Liquor can be bought on the festival grounds though.
