Roots Rock Revival Announces Schedule: Master Classes With Oteil, Jaimoe, John Medeski, More


Music Masters Camps’ seventh annual Roots Rock Revival will take place from August 5th through 9th at Full Moon Resort in the heart of the “Forever Wild” Catskill Forest Preserve in upstate New York. The camp was created by the late drummer Butch Trucks, a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, in conjunction with bassist Oteil Burbridge (formerly ABB, now Dead & Company) and brothers Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars.

These all-star players sought to bring fans and musicians together to explore the world of the Southern Blues Rock movement, the Allman Brothers Band, and the music that forms the foundation of Rock ‘n Roll.
