The Roots 'N Blues 'N BBQ music festival is a two day event in Columbia, MO that showcases some of the finest blues, soul, and roots musicians of the modern era.

With a roster filled by exceptional American Blues acts such as Taj Mahal, Ralph Stanley, Los Lobos, Mavis Staples and Robert Cray; this festival is one that will surely exist for many years to come.  

A few Highlights: Taj Mahal bounced in and out of his decades long songbook playing island, country blues, and African blues tunes.

Ralph Stanley picked and sang and sounding as if he were aged only half of his 84 years.

Robert Lee Coleman and Sam Bush joined Los Lobos on stage for more than a handful of songs and set the stage ablaze with soulful sounds from two very different regional styles of playing. 

The “Artist who should soon be welcomed to wider audiences” award goes to William Elliott Whitmore. He owned the stage while opening day two with nothing more than a guitar and/or banjo, kick drum, and his voice.
