Saint Paul's third annual Lowertown Roots Music Festival returns to Mears Park on Saturday, July 27. This popular outdoor venue will come alive with the sounds of Zydeco, Blues, Bluegrass, and Nordic roots music for a full day of free concerts. With a canopy of trees, beautiful flower gardens and a cool winding creek, Mears Park is the perfect setting for the music that has informed, inspired and ultimately defined American music and culture.
Grammy award winning Zydeco master C.J. Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band
(8:30 P.M.) headline this year's festival.
"We were delighted with the response last year," said festival director Kevin Barnes, "and we have more great music coming to Saint Paul for our third year."
