The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph join lineup!!



Roots/folk/rock trio The Wood Brothers and renowned pedal-steel act Robert Randolph & The Family Band have been added to the bill for Rooster Walk 10, set for May 24-27, 2018 just outside of Martinsville, Va. The two bands joined JJ Grey & Mofro Tuesday at the top of the RW10 lineup.

Other new bands added: TAUK, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Zach Deputy, Colter Wall, Dangermuffin, The Last Yaltz (a Yarn-hosted tribute to The Band’s legendary “Last Waltz” performance), Cris Jacobs, Front Country, Kat Wright, Songs From The Road Band, Sanctum Sully and Fireside Collective.

In addition to JJ Grey & Mofro, we had previously announced the return of The Marcus King Band (southern psychedelic rock), Billy Strings (progressive bluegrass), The Jerry Douglas Band (progressive bluegrass), Yarn (Americana/alt-country) and The Commonheart (R&B/rock).  Of these acts, The Marcus King Band, Billy Strings, Yarn and The Commonheart are slated to play two sets each.

     Rooster Walk 10 will feature roughly 50 bands when all is said and done, as well as arts/crafts/food vendors, kids’ activities, outdoor activities, on-site camping and more.
