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)
