February 6 and 7 bring a musical feast to Lancaster. The 2015 Lancaster Roots & Blues Festival

offers the opportunity to see performances by featured artists from across the United States and beyond our nation’s borders.

This year, the festival will present over 50 artists at eight venues with ten stages. And they’re all within just a few blocks of each other. Among the venues for the 2015 music festival are The Ware Center, the Convention Center at the Marriott, Tellus 360, Chameleon Club, The Federal Taphouse, Lancaster Dispensing Company, The Trust Performing Arts Center, and the historic Elks Lodge.

While all locations are within easy walking distance of each other, folks can ride from performance to performance via a bus that will travel between venues.

All the action will take place just 15 miles from the Historic Smithton Inn, so I’m telling all my music-loving guests about it. This festival is a “must,” whether you prefer jazz and blues or polka and reggae. It brings an array of talented musicians from a spectrum of genres including folk, r&b, jazz, roots reggae, funk, rock ‘n roll, and more.

For all the details and to buy tickets, visit the Lancaster Roots & Blues – A Festival of Music website.
