This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State's general fund and its arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
The 2015 Roots, Rock, & Deep Blues Festival, presented by Patrick's Cabaret, has been renamed as The Longfellow Roots, Rock, & Deep Blues Festival.
Event: July 18th from noon - 10pm
The 2014 'Best of Twin Cities' (City Pages) and 2014 'Best of Minnesota' (Star Tribune) summer music, arts, and cultural event is back on Saturday, July 18th 2015 for its 5th incarnation, from noon to 10pm.
The most ambitious and accessible neighborhood arts and culture celebration of the Twin Cities is also the annual fundraiser for non-profit arts organization/performance venue Patrick's Cabaret in South Minneapolis.
Patrick's Cabaret is excited to unveil a new, expanded festival footprint in South Minneapolis for 2015 and is announcing another eclectic lineup of the best local, regional, and national RRDB artists.
In addition to adding the neighborhood name (Longfellow) to its already laborious acronym, this summer will see the festival expand into Minnehaha Avenue with the addition of numerous neighborhood restaurants, including: Gandhi Mahal, Midori's Floating World Cafe, Le Town Talk, El Nuevo Rodeo, African Paradise, Merlin's Rest and many more, representing an astonishing mix of offerings in the festival's new International Food Court.
The Longfellow Roots, Rock, & Deep Blues Festival will also showcase new neighborhood businesses such as Du Nord and Le Town Talk, as well as long-standing neighborhood anchors like Harriet Brewing Company. The festival will be zero-waste for the first time and again be bicycle friendly with the return of The Hub Bike Co-op's complimentary bicycle valet service for two-wheeling attendees.
Patrick's Cabaret will present a variety of interactive activities, including: live performance art, an exhibition of visual artists, and the very best local craft sodas, beers, and distilled spirits.
The 2015 festival will again boast (5) musical stages, with top-notch live entertainment throughout the day and into the evening, including perennial festival favorites: Kent Burnside & The New Generation, Minneapolis's own 'Spider' John Koerner, and Duluth's Charlie Parr. As well as intermittently returning acts like Indiana's gut-bucket power trio Left Lane Cruiser, local Afro-funksters Black Market Brass, and award winning Iowa blues artists Joe & Vicky Price.
As always, there will be exciting fresh faces and sounds this summer, including the last living Bentonian-style blues player, Mr. Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes from Bentonia, MS, the Toronto based punk-blues duo Catl, acclaimed composer/producer (and former Squirrel Nut Zipper leader) Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition from Oxford, MS, Minneapolis West-Bank music legend Willie Murphy & Angel Headed Hipsters, and local folk-grass trio Last Revel.
The complete up-to-date festival lineup can be found at www.rootsrockdeepblues.com with additional acts being announced throughout the summer.
Tickets are just $20 for this fully immersive, city-central festival experience, with all proceeds going towards continuing the valuable year-round community arts programming offered at Patrick's Cabaret.
*A limited number of discounted tickets will be available through the festival website beginning May 8th until supplies are gone.
In addition, a special pre-festival party hosted by KFAI's Jackson Buck will happen at Harriet Brewing Company on Friday, July 17th, featuring Brooklyn, NY based Americana quartet Miss Tess & The Talkbacks. And while the outdoor festival activities conclude at 10pm, the party will continue just two blocks away with some very special indoor performances in the ballroom at The Eagles Post 34.
Patrick's Cabaret would like to thank all of the presenting partners and sponsors, as well as the participating artists, businesses, and neighborhood residents for their ongoing support.
