Rising Silo Farm Brewery presents American Roots in concert on Friday, December 7, 2018.
Enjoy American music including blues, swing, jazz and "folk grass".
American Roots is an acoustic guitar and vocal harmony duo performing roots and Americana music penned between about 1900 and 1950.
Fred and Jon Benfield took the name “American Roots” because it describes the music they have enjoyed performing together in the five-county area over the last 25 or so years. Their musical influences are many and varied as are their shows which could be characterized as Americana Music: “Carter Family to Gershwin”. A typical performance may include traditional Appalachian ballads, country/piedmont blues, delta blues, very early country, tin-pan alley tunes, western swing, jazz, hot fiddle tunes (on guitar), and “folkgrass” (folk tunes played at bluegrass tempo).
Relax on the patio of Blacksburg's only farm brewery to the taste of craft local brews and kombucha.
A warm and hearty meal prepared by the farm kitchen, Tabula Rasa, is available by cash donation, and supplied by products of Glade Road Growing, Strong Earth Farm and Hoof Hearted Farm LLC and all your favorite local growers and crafters!
Tips encouraged for musicians, there is no cover fee.
Rising Silo Brewery is a family-friendly, dog friendly vibe and all are welcome.
