What is the idea behind the frog outfits?

“This is actually a friend of mine, Ann’s, creation. She does a lot of stuff with the art team and whatnot, and I was asked last year to start volunteering, doing the puppets, and so I agreed to it and here I am today doing it again this year. And it’s quite nice, you know, being able to help out the community a little bit and get myself in to something I would have probably already been doing.”

What first interested you in Roots n Blues?

“Getting to enjoy live music and hanging out with friends and family.”

What has been your favorite part of Roots n Blues so far?

“Well, this of course is always fun. You get a lot of positive reactions from everybody, you know, young and old alike. And also getting to see some bands I probably wouldn’t have been able to afford.”

What has been the most interesting outfit you have seen at the festival this year? Let us know in the comments below.
