Rhythm and Roots Festival – Labor Day Weekend

It’s the band’s first time playing the Rhythm and Roots Festival. “We’ve heard such great things about Rhythm and Roots and we know a lot of people who attend every year who are such great dancers. I don’t know what it is about Rhode Island and where these people learn the “two-step.” Every time we play Rhode Island, there’s a great group of people that come out. We certainly want to cater to the dance crowd and have a high energy set that gets the place moving.”

 

Ryan Belmore from What’sUpNewp was also busy interviewing about the upcoming festival!

“Alan and Michelle from Magnolia Cajun Band, “Rhode Island’s Hometown Cajun Band”, joined me to chat about the band’s upcoming performance at next weekend’s Rhythm and Roots Festival in Charlestown.”  Listen to the interview here!!
