Band: Rooted - Americana

Rooted was the winner of the 2018 TGIF Showdown Competition. Since then they have performed at a variety of venues including the Morganton Festival last September. Welcome them back to the TGIF stage as they headline the evening of Friday, May 17th. Bring your chair or blanket and enjoy this free performance on the Historic Courthouse lawn. Food and beverage vendors open at 6:00pm offering a selection of dining and drink options. Then music starts at 7:00pm.

With multiple artistic backgrounds, Rooted combines Americana, pop, rock, folk, and country (the good kind) together to create a signature sound born in the NC foothills.
