2013 Muddy Roots Festival Official Lineup

The Muddy Roots Festival happening in Tennessee Labor Day weekend Aug. 30th – Sept. 1st has announced their 2013 lineup. Once again Muddy Roots defines the nexus between country, punk, blues, bluegrass, and other underground and independent roots by presenting a mix of music that is very wide ranging yet strangely intuitive from the universal DIY spirit and appreciation for the roots that can be found in all performers.

Speaking of DIY and appreciation for the roots, the 2013 Muddy Roots headliner will be legendary punk band and one of the originators of the DIY spirit in American music, Black Flag. Led by Greg Ginn, the band is re-forming to play Muddy Roots as their first US date.

The 2013 Muddy Roots lineup is also topped by legendary Bakersfield songwriter Red Simpson, primarily known for his songs canonizing the American truck driver. It was recently announced that Red would be saluted by the Country Music Hall of Fame as a “Poet & Prophet.”

And The Monsters from Switzerland, a self-proclaimed “Wild Primitive Chainsaw Massacre Teenage Trash Garage Clonedrum Fuzz Rock N’ Roll” band will be making their sole US stop at Muddy Roots.
