Ok folks so this installment takes us to Nashville Indiana and the Brown County Campground as they present the LAST EVER Muddy Roots Spring Weekender. It’s a smaller more secluded version of the main festival in Cookeville which I’ll also be at. Folks I tell you what I WILL ALWAYS be working for Mr. Jason on the promotions front and he does a LOT to keep me rolling.

Even as I write this I am about to embark upon his Nashville Boogie Festival in Nashville and then I’m off to another festival the week after. This festival just keeps happening during a busy time for me and I cannot attend, but I’ll tell you what this campground is gorgeous and I have been there many times.

At this festival you can hear NEW music from Joseph Huber which I reviewed HERE and also Left Lane Cruiser has new music out. Mr Brooke has his solo album available on vinyl and I’m not sure if it’s sold out or not yet, however there are many integral Roots Music acts on this bill.

You can click HERE and buy tickets and by the way I make NO money off your ticket purchase it goes ALL to the festival companies NONE of my festival articles do. As always I found some hotels in the area for those of you that are like me and do not camp. So with all this information in mind why not go set aside some time to relax and let Muddy Roots entertain you?

I am staying at the South Loop Hotel which is only about 5 blocks from Reggies. That folks is about the only nearby hotel that I have found so far. This is an indoor event so the rules of the festival are pretty much the rules of the venue, however like EVERY festival there is ONE main rule: Don’t be a dick.

Hotel information! We have a block of rooms at the South Loop Hotel for May 5th and May 6th. Unfortunately, there is a big conference in town that weekend, so the special price will be $169 per night. They are big rooms, so share with your friends to split the cost! Email or call Sheila Ward directly to reserve your room. They will go quickly!
