Where in the world is Sam? Well, I’ve been hither and yon directing the operations of Lancaster Roots and Blues 2015 to prepare for the biggest party ever thrown in our fair city! I’m digging the hugs and pats on the back; keep ‘em coming! Coffee is nice too. I have been doing plenty of writing but mostly it’s content for the LRB website. Have you visited today? Do you have tickets? Are you volunteering? Let me hear you Lancaster!
Much of my other writing has been farmed out to our media partners. Check out these fun, informative blogs I wrote for FigLancaster.com. This link will take you to my piece on the festival venues. This link will take you to my blog on the stuff people are shouting at me as I run through the streets. And this link will take you to the blog our office manager Carrie Binkley is writing: a sort of behind the scenes/under the gun peek at how we lash this thing together. Her latest is about the stunning array of Master Classes we are offering this year. And don’t miss her piece on our Food Truck Court!
I will be even tougher to keep up with the weekend of the festival but know this. I couldn’t be more proud or pleased to be working with Rich Ruoff and our team to bring Lancaster Roots and Blues back to town Feb 6-7. We have responded to your requests to offer a Food Truck Court in Lancaster Square and wow, wait till you see who’s coming to dinner. We also have added tons of great stuff to do during the day Saturday, with Master Classes at The Ware Center starting at 12:30pm, music starting at the Convention Center at 2pm and at Tellus 360 at 2:30.
I can tell you that I’ll be at Trust Performing Arts Center Friday 2/6 at 5:45 to introduce Grand Ole’ Ditch and kick off the night in style! If you haven’t heard these bluegrass phenoms from Cumberland, MD or visited The Trust before, I highly recommend you meet me there. Can you say humdinger?!
