It’s May now, so let’s start focusing on all the outdoor fun you can have this summer. As we said yesterday, our new playlist (below and to the right of these words) features some of the many bands you can check out as part of this year’s Alive @ Five series on the creek, which kicks off next week. Also happening this summer? The Red Wing Roots Music Festival at Natural Chimneys Park in Mount Solon, Virginia, on July 10, 11 and 12. The Steel Wheels are the host band, so we thought we’d share this shot from them at the Weinberg’s Americana Fest a couple months ago. The event will also feature The Punch Brothers, Robert Earl Keen and much, much more. We’re thinking about making the trip. Are you? Photo courtesy of Cassandra Mullinix.
