American Roots Music Festival

American Roots Music Festival

The Milk Carton Kids Amythyst Kiah and more!

Saturday June 22 All Day


Acclaimed folk duo The Milk Carton Kids bring a full band and their heartfelt melodies to headline Caramoor’s 9th annual American Roots Music Festival. Tennessee-based multi-instrumentalist Amythyst Kiah is a quickly rising star with a raw, hypnotic old-time sound steeped in African-American roots music. Many more artists add an exciting array of folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, blues, Old Time, and intriguing folk fusion performances to this daylong celebration of our musical heritage. Enjoy the best of the summer with great food, friends, and foot-tapping fun.

“The Milk Carton Kids’ Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have long drawn influence from the rich vocal harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, the intricately twinned acoustic guitars of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings and, in concert, the deadpan/goofy banter of The Smothers Brothers.” — NPR Music
