Banding Together for Nearly 30 Years

Experience musicians in their prime sharing stories about life and love through music against a backdrop of forest-clad mountains and the pristine waters of the Shuswap. ROOTSandBLUES is a festival where you can dance late into the night with new friends and laugh with your family in the kids’ tent under the same Shuswap sky.

The soul of ROOTSandBLUES thrives in our virtual Altered States II. And we can’t wait to welcome you back to Salmon Arm in 2022.
