It was a fabulous day of music, sunshine, good friends, good times and delightfully happy for fans at the 2018 Suwannee Roots Revival at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Fla. And, folks, it's just starting with two more big days to go! Get over here or you will miss one of the best times ever!

Today it's your second chance to see and hear David Gans, Verlon Thompson, Jim Lauderdale, Rev. Jeff Mosier and Billy Gilmore all on the Music Hall Stage together from 3:30 – 5 p.m! This “Synergy of Grateful Dead with Americana Conversation & Performance is hosted by David Gans and will be one of the super highlights of this weekend! You also do not want to miss the unbelievable Corbitt Brothers perform at noon to 1 p.m. on the Porch Stage, Samantha Fish, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Tornado Rider, Nikki Talley, Whetherman or Bruce Cockburn perform throughout the day on the Amphitheater Stage! Donna The Buffalo and Leftover Salmon will shut down the day on that same stage this evening. Many others are performing on the five stages across the beautiful landscape of the SOSMP this weekend through Sunday evening. You still have time to come and enjoy this incredible music festival and park on the banks of the Suwannee River where there is cool air, sunshine, laughter, families with children, a children's tent, great food, more music than you can take in and a feeling of calm on this beautiful Saturday.

Tomorrow is the last day of the 2018 Suwannee Roots Revival with Tania & Kids, Verlon Thompson, Jim Lauderdale, The Grass Is Dead with Rev. Jeff Mosier, Leftover Salmon, Donna The Buffalo, Quartermoon, Nikki Talley and Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. In the Kids Tent there will be yoga with Rhonda Bell, all kinds of games and events such as a ukulele workshop and Kenny the Clown who has also performed internationally and been a favorite here since 2003. It's also Vassar Sunday tomorrow, a day of remembrance for this internationally known violinist/fiddler who played at the SOSMP many, many times prior to his untimely death.
