Blues, rock and country combined on American soil to provide an infectious blend we call Roots. Curator Sooz has hand-picked three local rising stars The Blue Ribbons, The Curtis Mayflower and The Silks to bring us Fresh Roots.

The Boston Globe describes The Blue Ribbons “Ray Charles and Tom Waits on a pirate ship with Sun Ra and Captain Beefheart,” that combines, “upbeat disillusionment and celebratory fatalism with musicianship.”

Local quintet The Curtis Mayflower, which consists of session players who have worked and toured with the likes of Levon Helm, Booker T Jones, and Jim Carroll, formed in 2013 and have hit the ground running. The rock outfit has thrown down the gauntlet for amassing a vast catalog in short time. The band already has their third album written and plans to head back into the studio to record it this year.

Having their debut record produced by rock royalty Paul Westerberg of The Replacements, Rhode Island based rock trio The Silks bangs out songs that reminds us music is for the body as well as the mind. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
