"ARROYO SECO WEEKEND" festival is June 24 & 25, 2017, in Pasadena, CA

This one brings the big national trend to Southern California. It's a new paradigm: roots music acts sharing lineups at big festivals with other acts that are absolutely NOT roots music. It's proving successful, coast-to-coast. probably because music fans are disgusted with being told what they like, when in fact, Big Music's soundalike sameness of electronic zaps and pounding shu-thump-thuds and incongruous vocal gymnastics are not what gets people excited.

Thus, we get these hybrid festivals that are attempting to offer something for everybody, and transcend generational sensibilities while doing it.

Here's the Guide's "Encyclopedia Festivanica" article on MMLA.

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS — and views of interest to artists everywhere — more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.
