The Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music and Arts Festival is ramping up for it’s 14th year running. Alongside this year’s headliner, ‘The Black Lillies’, the Roots & Rhythm Board is happy to announce three additional bands that will be taking over the Main Stage.

The Chris O’Leary Band

Chris O’Leary, former Levon Helm Barnburner and U.S. Marine, is back with 12 original fractured tales of hope and despair on his new album”7 Minutes Late”.

Chris’s musical background includes duties as lead singer and front man for rock and roll hall of famer and Grammy award winning Levon Helm’s band, The Barnburners. Chris has on stage with: Legendary Rolling Stones sideman Bobby Keys, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Vivino, Jeff Healy, Albert Lee, Dave Maxwell, Steely Dan, among many more!

Rosie Flores
Over the course of a career that has spanned more than four decades, Flores has jumped feet first into punk rock (with her ’70’s-era band, the Screaming Sirens), country music of both the Bakersfield and Nashville varieties, the Texas singer/ songwriter scene, alt-country, straight-up rock, and rockability. Profiled in Guitar World, Premiere Guitar and Guitar Player magazines, Flores was cited by Venuszine as one of the “Top 75 Greatest Female Guitarists of All Time.”

Wayne Hancock
Wayne makes music fit for any road house anywhere. With his unmistakable voice, The Train’s reckless honky-tonk can move the dead. If you see him live (and he is ALWAYS touring), you’ll surely work up some sweat stains on that snazzy Rayon shirt you’re wearing. If you buy his records, you’ll be rolling up your carpets, spreading sawdust on the hardwood, and dancing until the downstairs neighbors are banging their brooms on the ceiling. Call him a throwback if you want, Wayne just wants to ENTERTAIN you, and what's wrong with that?
