Learn more about Muddy Roots Music.
Beginning with the first Muddy Roots Music Festival in 2010, founder Jason Galaz promoted an iconoclastic and egalitarian vision of American roots music that spans from hardcore traditional blues, honky-tonk, and bluegrass to hardcore garage rock, punk, and doom metal. In addition to the annual Muddy Roots Music Festival, the company also includes the Muddy Roots Europe Festival in Waardamme, Belgium; the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender rockabilly festival; and the quarterly Wine on the Rails music/train excursion. Other ventures include Muddy Roots Records, the Vinyl Bunker record shop downtown (now closed due to time commitments), and the promotional merchandise supplier, Power Merch. That devotion to building a music community through mutual support is one of the bedrock DIY principles that guide all of Galaz’s businesses, along with the unofficial Muddy Roots mantra: “Don’t be a dick.”
