The famous blues musician BB King called Alexis P. Suter a “rare talent.” Levon Helm said, “She is one of those wonderful spirits, she’s got her arms around you; you can feel that.” Alexis P. Suter and her band will take the stage at the 10th annual Honesdale’s Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival right before the headliner, The Kentucky Headhunters, on June 20th—and festival fans can expect the stage to rock!
“Alexis P. Suter is a powerful presence on stage with an amazing bass/baritone voice,” says Randy Kohrs, music coordinator for this year’s festival, adding, “but don’t just take my word for it. She was one of the nominees this year for the prestigious Koko Taylor award at the Blues Music Awards ceremony. That honor goes to the best traditional blues female artist of the year.”
Kohrs describes the two remaining acts lined up for the main stage this year also “electric.” They are Professor Louie & the Crowmatix – “a tasty mix of rhythm and blues and rock”) and the Chrissi Poland, a “soulful siren.”
Honesdale Roots & Rhythm is a free, non-profit, family-friendly event with “lots of fun things to see and do and hear,” says Festival Chair Brian Fulp. “Come on down!”
