Music with a soul, made by musicians with a story
The music festival TakeRoot offers a surprising music tour through America. One moment you’re in a Blue Motel, where a lonely singer-songwriter pours all his sorrow into song and through paper-thin walls, the next you’re in a country barn filled with partying country lovers. At the next stop, you’re surrounded by blues musicians, who seem to have arrived fresh off the plantation, or by Americanas, who prefer a campfire in the desert over Bright Lights and Big Cities. TakeRoot is always authentic, with musicians who have one thing in common: they know all about the highs and lows of life. Through song, they share their loneliness, pain and joy. They have no other choice. They live balls out and without brakes, get bruised but not beaten. From intimate singer-songwriters to raging bands: TakeRoot lets their stories be heard. TakeRoot not only offers a music tour through America, but also through time. It’s for good reason the festival carries the tagline ‘Past, Present and Upcoming American Music’. The United States remain a land of extremes, a melting pot filled to the brim with new influences and ideas. It is the birthing place of almost every major trend in pop music: blues, rock, country, folk, Americana, you name it. The music has always been able to innovate, just like its residents: rolling stones & traveling bones.
