As a musician, I know how difficult it can be to connect with other players and get your music heard. I’ve been playing guitar and writing original material since I was about 13 years old, and I’ve always struggled trying to find people to play with.

It seems like in the age of computer generated music that actually learning an instrument is becoming a thing of the past. I find it rather depressing. But there are still people out there who love to play, albeit fewer than there once was. If you’re a musician and you’re in the same position as myself, you should definitely check out the Common Roots Festival in St. Cloud.

It’s a festival spanning over 3 days where local artists perform original material, and it’s a great way to connect with other musicians. You can register to perform now at commonrootsfest.com. It’ll take place August 21st - August 24th, so you have some time to work up your material.
