For decades, musicians on the road have been writing about home. So when touring was taking The Steel Wheels away from theirs too often, the group created the Red Wing Roots Festival near Harrisonburg as a way to stay close. The three-day extravaganza features dozens of local and national country-folk-Americana artists in a friendly community where music rules and going green is the only option. On-site camping, kids’ activities, food and spirits ensure everyone enjoys the weekend.
