Ladies this is your chance to get gussied up and show off the new dress you’ve got in your museum, uh I mean closet.

    Muddy Roots Spring Weekender Is Here! (INFO)

    The 2nd annual Spring Weekender is finally upon us my friends. We have some updates and information for you. We are going to have great weather, music and times!

    1. Our first update is with our Saturday menu.

    The original plan was to have our friend, Executive Chef Larry Finney, fly in to cook us a chuck wagon – dutch oven meal. He put a ton of work in to it sourcing all local meat and vegetables. Larry fell terribly ill and was hospitalized last week. He has had 6 surgeries since then. If you believe in good mojo or prayers please send it to him.
    We had to change our menu for the Saturday evening dinner with Joseph Huber. We are now serving brisket chili, corn bread, greens and baked beans. The brisket is slowed cooked in a smoker for a day before it is put in to the chili. You will LOVE IT! We unfortunately no longer have a vegetarian/vegan option for the dinner. If you are no longer interested in attending and would like a refund please email me at muddyrootsevents@gmail.com before Wednesday.
    We have 15 more seats left if you’d like to reserve one. Must reserve by Wednesday. . DINNER TICKETS

    2. We cut off bus ride reservations this Wednesday.

    So if you want to hop on a bus, drink beer, and party with live music all the way from Chicago to the Spring Weekender you better get off your ass and reserve a spot. Not a care in the world for a whole weekend. Now that is a beautiful thing.BUS RESERVATIONS

    4. Dr. Ralph Stanley.

    No updates. Just wanted to remind you that you are about to hangout with one of the most important living legends of Old Mountain Music, which some folks have called bluegrass. Just soak in how important this is and remember he almost retired on this tour. You may not get this chance again.

    5. We had a few cabins open up.

    Contact us now to rent one. They sleep 10 people and come with a small fridge, microwave and hot plate. All you need is pillows and blankies. They are $350- $400 for the weekend. That’s $20 a person to sleep indoors and not drive anywhere after drinking.

    6. Read this map!

    It has the layout info with updates & reservations. We may have an opening in 2 cabins and 1 rv hookup. When you arrive you will park in the entry lot and walk into the property if you are tent camping. No cars are allowed up there near the stage. Park nice and tight so everyone can fit. There will be shuttles taking folks in if they prefer and it only costs a buck a person courtesy of the venue.

    Sonics / Mudhoney Record Store Day Flippers Suck.

    We get that folks around the world need ways to get their hands on the Record Store Day releases. But folks that buy RSD records just to inflate the price and flip them suck. So to drive down the price of our own records we are putting 100 of them back on the market for $10 each. They have gone up to $100 on ebay.
    I am fully aware that I could slip a few on ebay myself and make the same amount of money but we don’t press these records for that. We do it out of love and to connect folks with the music that drives us. The connection is what the music is all about.

    ORDER HERE

    Catch them both at the Muddy Roots Music Festival in Cookeville, TN Aug 28-31, 2014.

    Muddy Roots Records Digs Deep With Woody Pines

    We took a stroll through and got lost in the Woody Pines discography. The stripped down American roots music sound is alive and well in this band. It’s the perfect jazz blend and modern renaissance of classic American style by young folks of today.

    We are going all in on this one. We are proud to be adding the entire Woody Pines catalog to the Muddy Roots Music Recordings label as well as announce a brand new album out later this summer! Woody Pines also plays the Muddy Roots Music Festival Pre-Party Thursday Aug. 31, 2014 at the Junebug Ranch.

    Keep an eye out for more updates soon…

    Catch a lick of ol’ Woody here:
