Join us as we bring an end to what has been a great chapter in the Muddy Roots book. This June we will be hosting our 5th and final Muddy Roots Spring Weekender in Brown County, Indiana. We like to say it’s the most beautiful of all our venues set back in the hills with tall tress and our own lake to boat or fish. James Hunnicutt once mentioned how he was able to perform one of his most intimate sets there as he closed his eyes and let the trickle of the creek that wraps the stage fill his soul. Her poured it right back all over us with incredible songs.
The first MRSW took place in Adams, TN. at the Red River Canoe Campgrounds in 2013. We wanted to provide an event that would hold folks over til’ the big Muddy Roots. Waiting a year for your favorite music festival can be brutal. It’s like a long distance relationship. We very much enjoyed the venue but decided to move up to Indiana to expand the Muddy Roots brand in to new areas but more importantly to build a stronghold for Muddy Roots bands. 5 years later and the region is flourishing with boutique roots festivals. All of which book “Muddy Roots” type bands. Mission accomplished. It’s time to focus our limited resources on supporting these other events as well as expanding the sound in to new areas.
If you are not in the woods with us this year you’ll unfortunately miss your chance to experience the magic of this beautiful property. We do cap the tickets to keep the event small and cozy. There are only a couple hundred available at this point. GET YOUR TICKET HERE!
We put together some of our favorite moments in Indiana for you set to the music of Joseph Huber who is performing this final edition of the Muddy Roots Spring Weekender.
It’s our 6th year Muddy Roots Music Records has been part of the “Folk Alliance International” community. We’ve been printing their merch, hosting trade show booths, sponsoring the event, and showcasing since back in the Memphis days. We’re happy to say that our presence has grown tremendously on site and that we look forward to sharing the next few days with you.
Mary Lee & The B-Side Brothers have been steady touring Europe and Brasil promoting their new album “Fighting Demons” on Muddy Roots Records and the Brasilian community is taking note. The new record has been named the #1 Brasilian album by Southern Rock Brasil.
Translated from below:
“Mary Lee & the B-Side Brothers – Fighting Demons: No matter the name of the band that accompanies Mary Lee, she has the gift of making everything into something good. “Fighting Demons” shows this to every track and I say without being afraid to look like a jerk, few bands in the country are at the level of Mary Lee & the B-Side Brothers. The band has a great vocalist, but not only that, it is accompanied by great musicians and the compositions are top notch. “Fighting Demons” is not only an album of the highest quality by Brazilian standards, it competes with many released outside the country. One of my great frustrations of 2016 was not having watched this band live, but one hour it happens”

Dylan Walshe was invited to perform on The Jerry Springer Podcast Show this month in Ludlow, Kentucky. As expected, the show is hilarious and chock full of witty cracks. Good ol’ Jerry at it again.
When announcing Dylan the hosts say “Dylan records on the Muddy Roots label. As soon as you hear that you know this man or woman is LEGIT because that’s a significant label in this modern world of roots music.”
Dylan makes mention of how we met and brought him over to the Folk Alliance conference 3 years ago.
Enjoy the full show HERE. Dylan starts singing around 35:00 It comes complete with a show sing along.
Dylan’s music can be found all over the interwebs on streaming an download sites. You can download it direct from us HERE.
Just 400 feet from the mouth of a cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky a 437 foot deep river emerges from the ground and flows inward. The secret to the mystery is that the river is only 16 feet deep but connects to an underground river that pulls objects through the mud in to the cave. In the 1800’s men would throw a plum bob down to measure the depth and were fooled by the mischievous trickery of Mother Nature. Once the hiding place for Jesse James, a liquor distillery, and even a nature night club in the 1930’s. A perfect place for our very own Canadian songstress.
Lost River Sesions WKU PBS asked Muddy Roots recording artists Dana Sipos to bless the river with a song.
Lost River Sessions had to say, “Singer-songwriter Dana Sipos has one of the most mesmerizing sounds in the folk scene today. Crafting music that is as naturally lovely, and even haunting, as the landscapes and imagery that influenced her, Dana’s songs are vivid tales shaped greatly by her upbringing in the Canadian subarctic city of Yellowknife.
With this in mind we knew we had to pair Dana’s uniquely imaginative music with the natural beauty and soundscape of Lost River Cave. Here is the first track from that session.”
You can find Dana’s music all over the interwebs streaming sites. For a CD please click HERE.
We put a lot of effort in to very specific ways to promote your band, brand or product to our crowds. We’re big on putting the music experience first at our events as well as building relationships with friends that support through advertisement and sponsorship. The most effective way to build brand recognition at our events in more subtle ways that do not distract from the performances. We have opportunities ranging from program advertisements to festival title sponsorship opportunities.
