Deep Roots is more than just a name -- it’s the guiding principle of the festival. “First and foremost,” says festival founder Claude Ryan, “we wanted to reconnect the local community with a festival scene that our region had lost.” He adds, “Marvin’s Mountaintop is considered one of the all-time greatest festival locations in the country, but it has not hosted a major music festival since All Good moved in 2012.” Deep Roots Mountain Revival intends to fill that void. “We aim to work with the local community to create a festival that welcomes folks of all ages, where anyone can create a memorable experience in a family friendly environment,” says Ryan. The festival pays homage to its West Virginia roots, including local and regional acts in its lineup.
