- Bobby Lee Rogers
THE annual foodie favorite Bacon Fest is more than pork: The festival sizzles with activities, including fun for kids, arts and crafts, and live music.
Southern Rock staple Bobby Lee Rodgers brings his storied sound to the stage. The guitarist was a founding member of The Codetalkers and performed with the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton in that project. As a solo artist, Rogers has become an in-demand festival act since 2009. Through vintage amplification, he pulls organ and guitar sounds out of his instrument and has performed with the likes of Widespread Panic, Warren Haynes, Vassar Clements, and more.
Savannah’s Andrew Gill gained Savannah’s attention in the jam/rock band Wormsloew. He continues to perform as a solo artist and in other bands like Junkyard Angel.
Kevin Arpin and Brian Haynes join Rogers and Gil on the Rousakis Plaza stage.
Later in the evening, Alabama Country Female Artists of the Year, Sweet Tea Trio, will share their harmonious country sound. Inspired by the Dixie Chicks and Pistol Annies, the band has performed the National Anthem at the Talladega races and played on bills with country staples like Lonestar, Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence, and more.
Saturday, September 2, 7 p.m., free, all-ages
