Living Roots Music Festival is a go for 2021. Festival founder/organizer Eddie Young made the announcement in a statement circulated yesterday outlining some of the changes involved in hosting an event amidst continued health regulations.

“We are planning to move forward with some sort of festival this year,” said Young. “We will be using our regular venues – Grimross Brewing Company, The Cap and The Tipsy Muse Café – as well as a special festival kick off at the Fredericton Playhouse.”

Set to take place June 2-6, this year’s festival will forgo traditional passes and ticketing, allowing venues to handle the individual sale of event tickets through their own established frameworks.

“We will have familiar faces as well as some new acts,” said Young. “The full schedule is not available yet, but I have the artist list. Some of these acts are from out of province and could be subject to change depending on travel restrictions.”

Living Roots 2021 will kick off with an album release show at the Fredericton Playhouse on June 2 where Fredericton musician Colin Fowlie will bring a full band to the stage to celebrate the release of his sophomore album East of Nowhere, produced by celebrated Canadian guitarist and past Harvest Jazz and Blues performer Ariel Posen.

The list of artists slated to perform during the five day event include Old Man Luedecke, Mike Trask (Vinyl release), Garrett Mason, Terra Spencer, Colin Fowlie (Album Release), Kristin Martell, Montgomery Street Band, The Firey, The Soderman Band, The Falling Leaves (Reunion), Kylie Fox, Michelle Morrison, Samael, Honey Gut, Atlas, Run The River, Jock & The Docks, Chatham Family Band, The Other Drifter, Jake Cormier, Patrick Reynolds and Cole Hatty.
