The Muddy Roots Festival in Cookeville, TN this upcoming September 3rd & 4th is just over two months away, and in preparation they are ramping up plans to have a full-on documentary of the event created by Judd Films. To help fund the film, Jason at Muddy Roots has set up a Kickstarter campaign, with the hopes of raising $6,500 for the film’s expenses.
Festival founder Galaz has recruited Blake Judd of JuddFilms to produce and direct a documentary project about the music, musicians, and the fans. Through live music, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage, the film will bring much-deserved exposure to a growing scene and showcase the sincerity and dedication of its musicians and supporters.
Galaz said, “I knew that Blake would be perfect for this. He has worked with a lot of the artists in the scene and understands what we are looking for. This festival is something, when documented, deserves the eye of people who understand where these bands and fans are coming from and what it means. All the funds raised go into production and Blake and his crew are willing put their efforts behind this for the cause. I’m excited that he was willing to work on this with us.”
“I can’t wait to get started on the project, “says Judd, “The Muddy Roots Festival is becoming the Bonnaroo or the Woodstock for this scene. No one is going to get rich from this, but it’s more of a place that all the bands and fans alike can come together, play music, hang out, and have a great time. It’s a lifestyle and that’s what we’re out to document and celebrate. This is a passion for these people and for us alike.”
The Muddy Roots Festival will have over 60 bands performing, including headliners Wanda Jackson, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, and Country Music Hall of Famer Don Maddox of The Maddox Brothers & Rose. (see full lineup below)
