Walther's Grassroots Music & Arts Festival, now in its third year, has
gathered many respected acts on the grassroots touring circuit to provide 10
hours of music August 10 at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, MD.
Fleck and the Flecktones, a featured act at the inaugural festival in 2000,
returns for an encore to headline the celebration of music, food, microbrews,
arts and crafts. Joining Fleck are Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Keller
Williams, John Scofield, Charlie Hunter, Virginia Coalition and Mofro.
Walther Productions has expanded the lineup for the second consecutive year by
adding one more act from the previous year.
"Walther's Grassroots Music & Arts Festival has become our traditional way of
celebrating with the fans who've supported us," says promoter Tim Walther.
"We've kept our annual promise to deliver the boldest collection of
grassroots performers they'll see on one stage all summer. Every act on the
bill is at the top of their game, and together, it creates a whole new level
of magic that we intend to continue for many years to come.''
