This festival is not an all bluegrass or banjo festival, however, it is one that presents to the attendees a wide genre of musical talent! This will be the 3rd year, and this festival is entirely FREE! There were an estimated 60,000 festival goers in '07, and 125,000 in '08. It is held downtown Columbia, with 3 different stages for the performers. The event is a 2 day. There has been a great artist lineup, with artists such as Jerry Douglas, Del McCoury, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Tab Benoit, Doyle Bramhall, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and MANY more! You can see the last two years lineup at www.rootsnbluesnbbq.com. The festival this year is September 25,26th 2009, Friday & Saturday. So, if you like free music and good food, make your plans to attend now! Mark your calendar.
