The nature of roots and blues music is its transcendence, its timelessness and its soulful performances. It is the root of great American music. Here at “Lancaster Roots and Blues, A Festival of Music,” we rejoice in the broad array of artists playing in our small town. This festival is perfect for the music fanatic with so much to see, hear and do, but it is also designed for the type of person who just doesn’t have the time anymore to keep up with all the up-and-coming musicians. You won’t have to follow the modern music scene closely to enjoy yourself. We have 10 stages and a huge variety of talents, featuring several musicians who are masters of their craft. You are sure to find a piece of music or maybe an artist who you will remember for the rest of your life.
