Rhythm & Roots 15th AnniversaryThe 2012 Rhythm & Roots Festival, is pleased to announce it's 15th Anniversary Celebration lineup, featuring a host of all-stars from every direction in the world of Roots Music... from red hot Cajun and zydeco dance music and down and dirty blues, to the best of French Canadian rhythms, mesmerizing dance/groove tunes, and jumpin' early Southern black string music. You won't want to miss a beat—not even one!
