LEAF Downtown, which returns on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31, has a decidedly local focus.
This year’s lineup, scheduled by Jeff Whitworth of Worthwhile Sounds includes a danceable mic of funk, soul, rock, bluegrass and more — and many of the acts are locally based.
While past Barnaroos have unintentionally focused on rock and blues acts, this year includes groups like Les Amis, Danielle Howle and Bare The Traveler. The sixth annual festival is held at Frannie’s Farm Saturday, Sept. 26, and Sunday, Sept. 27.
West African roots band Les Amis plays a set upstairs before acoustic, electric and collaborative sets by Dangermuffin and Weather and Waves fill Isis’ downstairs hall with earthy music. The separately ticketed shows on Thursday, Sept. 3.
