The Sadies to Headline 13th Annual Roots & Rhythm

HONESDALE, PA – Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival is proud to welcome The Sadies as the headliners for this year’s community event on June 16th, 2018.

The Sadies, an alt-country band out of Toronto, combine a punk rock attitude with awe-inspiring beauty and mystery, much like their most recent album cover Northern Passages, which encompasses the full beauty of the Aurora Borealis. The bands quartet is comprised of singer/guitarists Dallas and Travis Good, bassist Sean Dean and drummer Mike Belitsky.

Throughout the years, The Sadies have collaborated with such talents as Neko Case, R&B legend Andrew Williams, The Mekons’ Jon Langford, Jon Spencer, Robyn Hitchcock, John Doe, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Good Downie, and last, but not least, the great Neil Young!

Their most recent album, Northern Passages, has been described as not only a masterpiece, but one filled with “psych-folk touches that blend the sounds of our inscrutable world, and how we manage to survive in it.” (J. Schneider)

The Sadies are sure to be one of the greatest bands Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival has ever had headline. Be sure to set the date in your calendar, and get ready to for an awesome day filled with amazing talent.

The festival’s main stage lineup will kick off with 3 bands, 2 of which are no strangers to Wayne County. Those acts will be announced soon.

Honesdale Roots & Rhythm officially opens at 10:30 Saturday morning with local bands along Main Street and then moves to Central Park, where attendees can enjoy arts, crafts,  games and food. This non-profit event is totally free of charge, put on entirely by volunteers and supported by sponsors, donors and grants.
