Festival preview by Bill Rudd...
In less than a week, music returns to the mighty Marvin’s Mountaintop in Masontown, West Virginia. The hallowed All Good grounds will host the inaugural Deep Roots Mountain Revival from September 15 to 18. The festival’s impressive and diverse “Americana” lineup has been the talk of the campgrounds all summer, boasting a bevy of heavy hitters supported by the some of the region’s best bands.
Bluegrass and jamgrass are well represented from headliners Greensky Bluegrass and Leftover Salmon, to the legend lead Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder and David Grisman Sextet. With festival favorites like Cabinet, Larry Keel Experience, Cornmeal, and Rumpke Mountain Boys, teamed with local Appalachian acts like The Hillbilly Gypsies, The Woodshedders, Grand Ole’ Ditch, and The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers, this Mountain Revival is sure to be a picker’s paradise.
Fans who prefer headier jams can look forward to appearances from a variety of bands like Melvin Seals and JGB, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Hip Abduction, Big Something, Ginada Pinata, and Fletcher’s Grove, in addition to a special assembly of Zach Nugent’s Dead Set comprised of Vinnie Amico (moe.), Russ Lawton and Tony Markellis (Trey Anastasio Band), Colin Lenox (Dead Set), and the aforementioned Melvin Seals. The Lot Scene staff is especially looking forward to seeing the Cris Jacobs Band bridging the gap to the Mountaintop’s past.
Deep Roots has broadened their festival’s appeal even further by introducing alternative country to the party. Acts like Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Shooter Jennings with Waymore’s Outlaws, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, and Yarn should be warmly welcomed in West Virginia. Americana artists such as Rising Appalachia, Fruition, The Black Lillies, Megan Jean & the KFB, and The Company Stores don’t fit as easily into any genre because each specialize in making outstanding original music that has to be witnessed first-hand to be understood. With a stellar lineup coming to a storied location, we’re incredibly excited to be on hand for the first annual Deep Roots Mountain Revival.
