“Celebrate life and the notion that you shouldn’t waste a moment of it.”
Rooster Walk is only days away from opening the gates for the 10th year. This year will bring some exciting music, arts, and community goodwill. Rooster Walk is the work and passion among the community of volunteers to organize and run this non-profit festival.
This will be the fourth year of Rooster Walk at Pop’s Farm in Martinsville, Virginia.
The lineup of events feature not only music, but also healing arts, the kids coop, golf tournament, a river float, and the Gear Cove for outdoor activities.
Rooster Walk is hosting a spectacular lineup that will provide the foundation of memories for all in attendance.
“King and Strings” is one of this year’s highly anticipated collaboration. Billy Strings and his band will play with Marcus King. This debut pairing will turn things up a great deal and we hope to see drummer Jeff Sipe of the Aquarium Rescue Unit join in for more collaboration. The headlining bands at Rooster Walk this year are J.J. Grey & Mofro, The Wood Brothers, and Robert Randolph and The Family Band. Look out for the The Last Yaltz, performed by Yarn and special guests, Billy Strings, Marcus King will perform 2 sets, Jerry Douglas Band, and not to be missed, The Trongone Band performing a Gregg Allman Tribute with Josh Shilling.
