Rosanne Cash at the Rhythm and Roots Festival





“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.

GoLocalProv features Kurt Sodergren of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Live


After 24 years and 11 records, Kurt Sodergren drummer and co-founder of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy says the band has no reason to slow down.

“Right now is as much our solid days as it was back in ’98,” Sodergren says.

The notorious swing and jazz band recently released a new album “Louie Louie Louie” that pays tribute to Louie Armstrong, Louie Prima, and Louis Jordan through the evolution of swing, jazz, and popular music.

Besides bringing the music of Armstrong, Prima and Jordan to thosewho might not already know about the artists, Sodergren says, “selfishly, I think we did it because these songs are really, really fun to play.”

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will perform at the 20th Annual Rhythm & Roots Festival on September 2 at Ninigret Park in Charlestown.
