The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival is coming up in Sept. 20-22.  It's going to be a huge event with lots of music and food down in Columbia at Stephens Lake Park.

It's going to be held September 20-22.  They're going to have all sorts of huge performances from names you know including The Black Crowes, Blues Traveller, Steve Earle, Mavis Staples, Johnny Winter, Bela Fleck, Samantha Fish and more.

They're also going to be having a run and marathon.  You can sign up now for the Roots N Blues N BBQ 1/2 Marathon & 10K. You'll enjoy music along the course plus delicious BBQ and a refreshing beverage at the finish line. All runners will receive a commemorative medal, a collector's shirt and a 50% discount on tickets to the festival! The 1/2 marathon begins at 7 a.m. The 10K begins at 7:30 a.m.

I got to talk with Julie King with the festival and she told us more details.

We'll be talking about this again, but don't put off getting your tickets.  General admission tickets are available until Sept. 22, and there are some great discounts for group rates. Get tickets or find more information on their website.

Blues-ily yours,
