2019:

Summer & Fall tours were amazing. Thanks for all the support. We’re currently on the road with some Winter tours.

Willy Tea Taylor has been on the road for more than 6 weeks (2 weeks in Scandinavia and 30 days in mainland Europe). J. Aubertin had a great tour in November and is now focussing on 2020. Halloween demanded us to bring Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls back on the road, they are happy they pleased y’all with their voodoo folk&roots. The Big Swamp as well as Trixie & The Trainwrecks (US/UK) had a great FALL tour and we already started booking 2020. Jim Bows & The Flycatchers will be on the road for the 1st time with Rootstown. Later this Winter we’ll bring Fog Holler (USA) & Reverend Red (USA) on the road.

We are also very happy our new project, Rootstown Busking Team, is getting a decent amount of response. We’re looking forward to have more of these 100% acoustic showcases soon.

I guess Fall has never been busier before & of course we keep on working for all our others bands/musicians/venues/events…. too.

2020 Is getting scheduled now too. Feel free to check the list and get in touch if you want to book any of these bands.
