APRIL 2021

Hello dear promotors, friends and fans, how are you doing? We sincerely hope you are all doing fine.

The 3rd COVID-wave officially entered our society and it brings a lot of new retrictions and forces us to cancel most of the tours and events for Spring and Summer so far. But we’ll try to keep it positive. In the meantime we decided to keep on sending out our newsletter and booking offers as we strongly believe our world will recover some day from this.

Good news too as we got asked again to start with the preparation/bookings for our annual Roots In het Park & Roots In De Herfst festivals, as well as our annual walking trail Buskerfestival, all for 2021 of course!

On top of this we are working on a digital format with local musicians too. This should be on air (1 video) on May 1, 2021.

We updated the Rootstown website. Check out the new layout, hope y’all like it. www.rootstown.be 

Events in the pipeline for 2021: Roots In Het Park, Arts & Roots in the Woods, Busker 2021 (2 events), Rootstown Cinema 2021, Roots In De Herfst, Rootstown Tribute Night (2022) …. + more to come.

We also took our time to listen to all the great bands who sent us their music and info.  

Spotlight on the latest additions:

Ted Russel Kamp (USA): Americana, singer-songwriter, country, roots music

Colline Hill (B): female singer-songwriter, Americana – folk – roots

Stovepipe (B): A little groovy rock&roll ghoulie

The Good Bad (USA): Bluegrass-folk, December 2021

Matt Horan (USA): American Folk Singer (frontman Dead Bronco)

The Brothers Strong (USA): Roots, Americana, Folk, October – November 2022 

The Dad Horse Experience from solo to – XXXXL (GER): Keller-Gospel, European Underground with American Roots

Vivants (B): soundscapes mixed with folky roots and dark ambient

Bandits (B): French roots show for kids (with members of Everyone Is Guilty)

To keep on supporting our musicians during the 1st COVID-19 wave, and to keep in touch with our fans, friends, promotors, venues, events we hosted +/- 20 online LockTown sessions. We thank you all for tuning in. The support we got was AMAZING!

Please check’em out and enjoy these exclusive lockdown concerts: 

youtube / facebook / instagram / website

Our project, Rootstown Busking Team, can hopefully go back on the road after the new lockdown. Thanks a lot for the big amount of response. We’re looking forward to have more of these 100% acoustic showcases soon.
