Saturday, June 8 you can sleep in a bit, but know that the music starts at noon o' clock behind the Rodeway Inn with:
The Sea The Sea
Roots veterans the Roger Marin Band (be sure to wish Roger a Happy Birthday!)
David Wax Museum
the second Roots appearance of Seattle native Zoe Muth

Third Canadian act of the weekend, the wonderful & hilarious Miss Carolyn Mark
Finishing the night, some guy named Fred Eaglesmith, along with his Travelling Steam Show
Roots on the River is volunteer driven and staffed. With 20-25 volunteer staff and an additional 75 weekend volunteers each year, the festival could not possibly be produced without their unfailing support. Many volunteers have returned for 10 years or more. Vermont Festivals' Ray Massucco started out as a volunteer in 2000 and eventually found himself spending more time than he's willing to admit producing this little gem of a festival.
Charlie Hunter started the festival, but no longer needs to sneak onto the webpage to tidy things up. This makes him happy. Questions & complaints regarding this site can be lodged here, but there's no guarantee you won't be mocked for them; that can be remedied by donations of cash and/or karma to the same place.
