Over this summer, there will be a series of June Jazz performances taking place at Old Slater Mill in downtown Pawtucket. This historic landmark has been utilized as a venue for live performances for over five years and will continue this summer. The final show will feature “Rhode Island Music Hall of Famers Dan Moretti and Greg Abate, with an all-star ensemble including Marty Richards, Bruce Gertz (bass), and Mark Shalinsky (keyboard), and will showcase Bebop and post-Bop, and other contemporary and original works”. Stay tuned for Greg Abate’s performance dates!

This past Thursday, award-winning musician Greg Lato was interviewed by WhatsUpRhodeIsland. Lato has transitioned from writing tunes for movies and television shows to creating children’s music and stories. According to him, this change has allowed him to feel more inspired and creative, all while having fun doing it. Greg Lato shares with us his plans to release an entire album of children’s songs this upcoming summer! He is overwhelmed with ideas, primarily due to his two young daughters acting as a huge influence and motivator. This past weekend he hosted two book readings and performances at Barrington Books in Cranston and Barrington Public Library in Barrington RI. Stay in tune to see what Greg Lato has in store for you and your children!

Rhythm & Roots Festival Early-Bird Tickets Available Jan. 15
The 23rd annual Rhythm & Roots Festival tickets will go on sale Jan. 15. Last year’s festival had the perfect weather, music, dancing, camping, food and fun that turned Charlestown’s Ninigret Park into a massive reunion. This year’s festival, set for Sept. 4, 5 and 6 over Labor Day weekend, will surely deliver all that and more.
Give yourself, or a loved one, something to look forward to this winter. Early-bird tickets will be available online Jan. 15 at the lowest price all year. Three-day tickets, with camping, are available at a cost of $175.
We’re busy planning the lineup for this year’s festival. Confirmed acts thus far include Rhiannon Giddens (of Carolina Chocolate Drops fame), Richard Thompson, Uprooted featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root, Keller Williams, Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, Trigger Hippy, Donna the Buffalo, Amythyst Kiah and Tami Neilsen just to name a few. More stellar artists will be announced in the coming months.
We’ve decided to return to our tradition of beginning the music at 5 p.m. on Friday, with bands performing on the main stage and dance tent. The gate opens at 4 p.m. Ticket prices have been adjusted to reflect the shorter day. The Saturday and Sunday schedule will remain the same as in the past. Festival hours are: Friday 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. to midnight. Music begins at 5 p.m. Fri. and 1 p.m. Sat. and Sun.
As the festival evolves, so does traditional music. Year after year, the two dozen or so bands who perform at Rhythm & Roots prove that roots music never stands still, so get your tickets early. These low prices are good for a short time, and tickets sell out quickly.
