LIVE OAK, FL — Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is pleased to announce additions to the 3rd Annual Suwannee Roots Revival which takes place Thursday, October 11 – Sunday, October 14 at the magical Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Florida. Additions include Oteil & Friends, Leftover Salmon, Bruce Cockburn, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Shinyribs, Dustbowl Revival, Jon Stickley Trio, The Grass Is Dead, Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, David Gans as Artist-at-Large, and more! These superb additions join in on an already stellar lineup that includes Keller Williams’ PettyGrass Featuring The HillBenders, Donna the Buffalo, The Seldom Scene, Samantha Fish, Peter Rowan Free Mexican Airforce, Jim Lauderdale, Verlon Thompson, Rev. Jeff Mosier, and Joe Craven & The Sometimers.

With multiple stages (Amphitheater Stage, Porch Stage, Dance Tent, Music Hall, and Music Farmer’s Stage) Suwannee Roots Revival is jam-packed with stellar music and dance and many bands will perform multiple sets. This family-friendly festival includes four days of music, camping, yoga, music workshops, a Kids Tent, as well as campground pickin’ sessions. Set in the midst of 800 acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress trees along the Suwannee River, the venue is a playground for endless activities such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, disc golf, and biking.

Oteil Burbridge will lead an all-star cast as Oteil & Friends featuring John Kadlecik, Weedie Braimah, Alfreda Gerald, Jay Lane, Scott Metzger [JRAD], and Jason Crosby [Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band]. Oteil is no stranger to the Suwannee festival family, originally playing SOSMP with Aquarium Rescue Unit and Oteil & The Peacemakers back in the day, as well as his annual Allman Brothers Band appearances in April. With his current gig with Dead and Company going better than ever, he’s making new fans everywhere he goes and Oteil & Friends will bring his vast and varied experiences into what promises to be a transcendental set that will be long remembered.

Festival director Beth Judy says, “Oteil has so many options right now, still he loves our festivals and he chose us. All his friends joining him are stellar musicians, but, I absolutely ADORE Alfreda Gerald’s voice! I can’t wait!”

Leftover Salmon, also a longtime Suwannee favorite who has played multiple times over the years, is one of the great purveyors of Americana that dig deep into the well that supplies its influences; rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues. They will be traveling with a new album, Something Higher (released May 2018), in which they tap into everything from horn-blasting R&B to reverb-drenched desert noir, from the cosmic roots music sound they helped create to neo-New Orleans-meets-Appalachia liquefaction. We are so excited to hear some of the new tunes at Suwannee Roots Revival!

One of Canada’s finest artists, Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity embracing folk, jazz, rock, and worldbeat styles. For 40 years, this Canadian musical legend has been capturing in song the essence of human experience – while fiercely striving to make it better for his activism on issues from native rights and land mines to the environment and Third World debt.

Bluegrass mavericks, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, will be traveling in from Wisconsin with their 2018 album release, The Ode. Shinyribs is the continuation of The Gourds’ Kevin Russell’s musical journey of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle; a Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit: a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. An eclectic eight-piece, Dustbowl Revival mines an energizing vein of soul, funk and roots-infused rock. Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio: innovative flatpicking guitar and sultry-spacy violin along with classically trained and heavily jazz-influenced drums. The Grass Is Dead will make us all smile, smile, smile… Pickin’ and grinnin’ is what they do best, and they have been adapting Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since 1998.

Known nationwide as a purveyor of literate, improvisational folk-rock with looping, singer/songwriter/producer/photographer/author David Gans has composed, performed, and written about music for the whole of his adult life and Suwannee Roots Revival is thrilled to host him as an Artist-at-Large. He has been on the road this year with The Grass Is Dead and Rev. Jeff Mosier and we are excited to see who else he will be sitting in with! Gans will also broadcast his Sunday SiriusXM Radio Show, Tales From The Golden Road, live from the festival.

With stunning, virtuosic technique, multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonathan Scales is likely the most innovative steel drummer on the planet and his mesmerizing compositions and tasteful, avant-garde improvisation that set him apart from the pack. Bela Fleck, in considering Scales’ cover of his composition “The Imposter,” remarked “To say I am impressed would be a gross understatement…”

Katie Skene and Cosmic Kind is Skene along with John Molo (drums), Kevin Scott (bass), Rick Lollar (guitar) playing blues, soul, and rock under the influence of Col. Bruce Hampton. Hailing from the mountains of western North Carolina, Nikki Talley’s gorgeous voice and thoughtful songs are as eclectic as the state that boasts the mountains and the sea. Brett Bass and Melted Plectrum plays bluegrass with an edge, SYZYGY is the Gainesville, FL rock trio led by Suwannee favorite Tom Nelly, and The Corbitt Brothers are a trio with a hard-driving, southern rock sound.

The dance tent will continue to build a program of organized dance hosting bands for Contra/Square, Waltz, and Salsa. The Dunehoppers, from St. Augustine have been a staple of North Florida folk festival the past decade with a tasteful blend of high energy bluegrass, folk, and old time dance music. LPT is a 10-piece orchestra delivering salsa and Afro-Cuban music with their high-energy live shows. Based in Piedmont North Carolina, The Walker Family Band delights audiences with Irish dance and American old time music with a forward reaching attitude and will be your Waltz connection at the Dance Tent.

Take one part standup comic, mix in a bit of Penn & Teller, add a dash of Cirque Du Soleil, and you may come close to describing Jeff Bradley’s show. No matter if Jeff is on stage or holding court in the festival area, his comedy + cool stuff is not to be missed.  

Hosted by long time friends of SOSMP, Randy Judy and Beth Judy, Suwannee Roots Revival focuses on amazing roots music that ties together a weekend laced with community based fun, growing friendships, laughing families, and that feel good feeling you get from hanging out in such a beautiful natural setting.

Early Bird Tier 1 Tickets are on sale now. $140 gets a 4-­day Weekend Pass which includes music, primitive camping (where is most cases you can camp right by your car!), all taxes, and handling fees.

Vince Herman shares his thought on The Nashville Sessions:
Recording The Nashville  Sessions was like a musical fantasy island for us. We’d have Earl Scruggs come in the morning, Taj Mahal in the afternoon and Waylon Jennings the next day. We were loving it. It’s still dreamlike thinking about it years later. I sure treasure having had the chance to play with such iconic figures, especially those who have passed on, including our brother Mark Vann. I’m going to savor the chance to make music with the great cast of characters assembled at the Ryman that night. Life is short. Art is long. –Vince Herman

Thank you for supporting Leftover Salmon for the past 25 years!

Leftover Salmon Still Smokin’
Setlist and Recap of 420 in the Streets of Denver

Leftover Salmon featuring Bill Payne of Little Feat played to a large crowd this past weekend on Sunday, April 20th. With the entire city a-lit with activities throughout the day, folks gathered in the streets outside of Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO, while Method Man and Redman performed inside to a packed house.

“People around the world are looking at Denver on this day…” said Vince Herman to The Denver Post/ Reverb. “I feel really glad that we can have a role celebrating in the streets.”

“It’s a little piece of culture that people can feel they own, and we’re going to see more and more of it,” Herman went on to state.

A bluegrass-focused jam band playing at the same event as a hip-hop act, Herman said is evidence of the different genres and cultures 4/20 brings to Denver. Vince said, “It’s a great indicator of the diversity of music in the Mile High City.”

The gates opened around 2pm with Leftover Salmon featuring Bill Payne taking the stage at 4:20pm. They brought up many guest throughout the day. After kicking off with “The 420 Polka” to celebrate this historic event, Karl Denson joined the band on sax on the majority of the first set. Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass), Allie Kral, Silas Herman (Gipsy Moon), Paul Hoffman (Greensky Bluegrass), Bonnie Paine (Elephant Revival) joined in in the second set. Everyone that sat in during the second set came back on stage, along with Daniel Rodriguez (Elephant Revival), to play during the encore.

The full set is available to download on www.LiveSalmon.com. All Leftover Salmon shows are streamed live on the site as well, pending a solid internet connection.

Leftover Salmon To Digitally Release 2004 Self-Titled Album on Feb 11th
Bill Payne of Little Feat to Join Leftover Salmon for Several Shows

LS-Thanksgiving'13_DLlogo-12

Leftover Salmon is thrilled to announce that on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 their 2004  album, Leftover Salmon, will be available digitally for the first time on all major digital outlets.

“The self-titled work was a collaboration with producer-friend Bill Payne of Little Feat. Mature yet playful, graceful yet dirty, it became apparent that Leftover Salmon was poised for out-and-out domination” writes Scott Caffrey (2005).

When asked how they came to choose Little Feat member Bill Payne as Leftover Salmon’s producer by Mike Greenhaus (2004), Drew Emmit summed up up the beginning of what was to become a long-term friendship and collaboration:

When we had our benefit concerts for Mark Vann when he was ill, [Little Feat’s] Paul Barrere and Bill Payne came out for those shows and played all five nights. We really formed a connection with them then and they were very supportive. Their presence was amazing and playing music with them was amazing after being such big Little Feat fans. So when we were trying to figure out producers for this record we were just trying to think of who would be really good organizationally—who would really bring all of this together. When Vince and I had gone out to the 25th Anniversary of Little Feat concert with Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Jackson Browne, and Billy Bob Thornton, Bill Payne was the driving force in keeping it all together. So we had this vision of him: not only do we love his music, but he is really great at bringing different sounds together. He plays a particularly beautiful solo on “Whispering Waters”—-it makes me feel like I am at the ocean.

To celebrate the digital release of the album, Leftover Salmon is offering a free stream and download of the track “Whispering Waters” featuring Bill Payne: http://bit.ly/LOSWhisperingWaters.

2. Mountain Top
3. Delta Queen
4. Lincoln At Nevada

6. Fayetteville Line
7. Everything Is Round
8. Whispering Waters*
9. Last Days Of Autumn
10. Just Keep Walkin’
11. Weary Traveler

*****

In true Salmon form, they’ll be performing songs from the album at shows mixed in with other old Leftover favorites, songs from their 2012 release Aquatic Hitchhiker, as well as new tunes release last year through Breckenridge Brewery. Bill Payne meets up with LoS halfway through their Powder Daze Winter Tour at the WinterWonderGrass Festival in Avon, CO this February and then travels on with LoS for shows in Jackson, WY and Victor, ID, then two nights in Big Sky, MT with the tour ending in Missoula. Leftover Salmon will pick back up for their early spring tour starting in late March.

Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Today, Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin); Drew Emmitt (vocals, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, mandola, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo, National guitar); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar); Alwyn Robinson (drums, percussion).

Be sure to tune in to LiveSalmon.com for LIVE-streams of all shows (provided there is access to an Internet connection) and downloads of live performances within a few days of the show.
