It is that time of year again – we are holding a Red Wing Roots Music Festival Ticket Give Away! This year we have the opportunity to hold a drawing for a pair of Red Wing Sunday (single day) passes. All you have to do is comment on which band playing on Sunday you are most excited to hear this year.
Red Wing Roots Music Festival has become a highlight of the summer for me, my girls, and my office staff. We spend the entire weekend hanging out with so many of our friends, hearing amazing music, hiking, and maybe even a little biking. We also love hanging out near the new stage that we designed….
I have written before about my love for this band that is the host for the festival – Steel Wheels. Their music touches me and I am so looking forward to the release of their new album! For now, I will keep listening to my current favorite song.
Sunday is my favorite day of the festival as the morning opens with a Steel Wheels “Gospel Set” and the day includes the Steel Wheels Tribute Set (where they honor an artist). Also this year I am looking forward to the Wildmans, the Fernandez Sisters, and the Gibson Brothers that all play on Sunday. You should really check out the entire weekend so you can see the Judy Chops, Walking Roots, Mandolin Orange, Charley Crockett, and the Hollering Pines – along with many others that will I will add to my list after this amazing weekend.
It will certainly be a long hot weekend. We drink plenty of water and try to stay cool in the mist pavilion sponsored by Venture Builders or if we are lucky there will be water in the nearby creek. The girls and I enjoy all the time together camping out (of course by camping I mean in an RV with air conditioning – I am a civilized architect after all…).
The community that forms at this festival is outstanding. We feel completely at home surrounded by amazing music and friends.
If you have not been, be sure to comment on which band you want to see on Sunday to enter our contest. If you are like me, this event will become an annual tradition that cannot be missed. If you really want to experience all the great bands, get your three day passes before they are sold out!
Here is the line up for Sunday:
100% The Steel Wheels! I’m excited for the new album too! Hoping to make this Red Wing our first!
100% definitely want to see the Steel Wheels! The Blackburn’s have never been to Red Wing- maybe we need to check it out!
Hard to pick a favorite! I’m really looking forward to the tribute set this year. I think I’m most looking forward to Dead Horses though!
Steel Wheels definitely!!
Birds of Chicago look pretty good.
I don’t know a lot of these, so the excitement is more about hearing new sounds. Though I know we can’t go wrong sitting in front of the Wheels!
I almost wish I didn’t have to preach that Sunday – I would definitely come out to hear the Wheels’ gospel set, otherwise.
By the way, Charles, I was glad to learn you had designed the stage. When our North River Ministerial Association had its Easter Sunrise service at Natural Chimneys this year, I noticed and admired the new stage!
I’ve never been! Always have wanted to go but had to work. Would LOVE to see the Steel Wheels!
The steel wheels! Have seen them in concert several times but never gone to Red Wing.
