North Carolina has become a hotbed of culture and activity lately, and news of the first-ever American Roots Festival taking place there this October is further proof. This brand new musical endeavor will be held from October 17-18 at the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, and features Eric Church as headliner for both evenings. Other performers include Modest Mouse, Sheryl Crow, The Roots, Willie Nelson, Warren Haynes and a whole lot more. (See below for the impressive lineup.)

Besides killer music, don’t forget to bring your appetite as “Taste of Raleigh: Food & Brews Celebration” will also be on-site. The event is being hosted in part by the same team that brought us Dear Jerry earlier this year, so we have faith that they know what they’re doing. Check back for updates and info!
