Sturgill Simpson or The Mavericks?  Ouch!

Margo Price or The Mavericks?  What!

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats or Greensky Bluegrass?  Excuse Me!

Amanda Shires or Valerie June?  Too Hard!


Today organisers of the Roots n Blues n BBQ festival announced stages and times for the performers lining up for the Columbia Missouri festival.  There will be some tough choices to make, that’s for sure, but that is a great problem to have I reckon.  Three more artists were also announced today:

Ha Ha Tonka

Israel Nash

Davy Knowles

 Here are the line-up times:



First launched in 2007, the Roots n Blues n BBQ festival features over thirty artists representing the genres of roots, blues, gospel, country, folk, bluegrass, rock, and soul music – international, national, regional and local artists.

The three-day event was originally held in downtown Columbia and moved to the close-by St Stephen’s Lake Park.  Listening Through The Lens found it in 2014.  It’s held in a beautiful setting, Stephens Lake Park is huge and the two stages are well positioned at the bottom of rolling hills – the larger of the two stages, Missouri Lottery, featured more roots and country artists, while the Great Southern Bank Stage had more blues and rock acts.  Add to that the Front Porch Stage and every genre base is covered.

We are returning this year!  The Trifest Music Tour will descend on the beautiful college town of Columbia from 28 to 30 September.  Not only will we be present, we are offering the Whole Hog VIP option for our group members.  This covers:

  • two lounge areas, each within view of a stage
  • upfront viewing areas at both stages
  • small plate meals served in the lounges Friday, Saturday and Sunday
  • appetizers & snacks served in the lounges
  • private restrooms
  • private access to our own cash bars

You can join us here, as well as embrace the Americana Music Festival and Conference in Nashville Tennessee and the Rhythm and Roots Reunion in Bristol Tennessee/Virginia.
