first_imgThe Steel Wheels’ Trent Wagler explains, “there is a momentum that is comfortable and yet, many times has surprised us all with collective beauty and joy. In our first three years we’ve had the opportunity to define what Red Wing is and it’s nice to start feeling the consistency and dependability of traditions seeping into this gathering. This year we hope to maintain that richness, but make no mistake, we still have some tricks up our sleeves!”RedWingDancing_Photo by The Pinwheel CollectiveLast year’s third annual Red Wing Roots Music Festival was wildly successful with approximately 2,750 attendees who raved about the music, the beauty of the setting, and the intimate and friendly atmosphere.

With sales running ahead of last year, fans are encouraged to purchase tickets soon, while they are still available.For tickets and more information, visit www.redwingroots.com Held in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley VA, the Red Wing Roots Music festival features 40 bands on four stages, over three days surrounded by the great outdoors.
