Rhythm & Roots Celebrates 20 Years

By: Chuck Hinman

September, 04, 2017

On Sunday, the 20th annual Rhythm and Roots music festival in Charlestown closed out with some great music, some wet weather and then a double rainbow. The music of Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys sounded late into the night on Sunday at the Rhythm and Roots dance tent, a fitting end to another festival of Americana roots music and that specialty of the bayou, Cajun French dance grooves. This festival was the 20th incarnation of Rhythm & Roots, and Riley and band have been at every one. Drizzling rain, the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, made for soggy listening during the day, but by early evening, when Canada’s fiddling couple Natalie McMaster and Donnell Leahy took the stage, the sun had come out and sparked a double rainbow over the crowd. By the time Rosanne Cash appeared, there was an almost-full moon shining from clear skies.After her set, Cash had praise for the audience. “This crowd, I mean that was an impressive crowd. A lot of festivals you play, there are a lot of drunk people, they’re kind of crazy, they’re there for the ride,” she said. “But these people were there for the music. They were really listening. It was great.”Sunday in Charlestown

“Squirrel Nut Zippers, March Fourth, Roseanne Cash Highlight Rhythm and Roots music and dance festival”

By Nancy Lasher and Jordan Hamowy

Rosanne Cash only played one set over the three-day festival, but it was outstanding. She took center stage, and although her songs and vocals were great, what really stood out was her phenomenal band. Although each band member had his moments, her husband and musical director John Leventhal’s lead guitar kept the crowd spellbound from one solo to the next.
