Roots n’ Ruckus Fest is finally returning this year for four nights of in-person shows this month.

Starting Dec. 8, contemporary NYC folk music shows will present 40 acts in 4 days. In 2020, Roots n’ Ruckus Fest was held online in order to keep their watchers and listeners safe. Over thirty thousand views have been reached on their online streaming.

This year, the lineup will feature many genres of artists, including Peruvian Surf Rock, Cumbia, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Singer-Songwriters, Peruvian Surf Rock, Country and much more! 

Jalopy Theatre & School of Music will only allow people with proof of vaccination and will follow local guidelines and run at a limited capacity. For those who would prefer to social distance they will be streaming the Fest online on their Facebook page, Youtube Channel and at their online store Viewcy.

Roots n’ Ruckus Fest has always been free. Listeners are asked to tip musicians directly during each set, by doing that it helped to maintain this tradition. 

The host of the Roots n’ Ruckus, Feral Foster, has always been very captivating with his powerful original songs. His engaging performances always made the audience reach deep into their pockets to tip him at each of his acts. Foster was named Best Folk Musician 2014 by the Village Voice, and Deli Magazine selected him for the Best of Spring Issue 2015.  

The show will be held from Dec. 8 through Dec. 11 at the Jalopy Theatre & School of Music, located at 315 Columbia St, Brooklyn. Check out the full schedule of performers here https://www.viewcy.com/e/ruckus_fest_2021
