BLOOM HEAVY RIVER ROMP 2012 Presented by SCHLAFLY BREWING

The good folks at Bloom Heavy have been helping bring good music to the SEMO area for the last few years, and this summer they have stepped their game up a notch with the Bloom Heavy River Romp. Taking place just a short drive South of St. Louis in Grassy, Missouri,  this years lineup is absolutely stacked and features Nederland, Colorados native sons, Yonder Mountain String Band, as well as bluegrass pioneer Del McCoury and his sons the Travelin McCourys as your headliners for the weekend in addition to 20 something more of the best up and coming names in the bluegrass/newgrass scene.

Joining YMSB and Del McCoury and sons will be Arrowhead veterans Cornmeal and Split Lip Rayfield as well as the only gypsy, punk, country, grumble boogie band in the land known as Dirtfoot. The bottom half of the lineup features the additions of The Dirt Daubers, a side project of Legendary Shack Shakers frontman Col. J.D. Wilkes and The Whistle Pigs, a band I had the pleasure of seeing last year at the Harvest Music Festival. Also listed on the bill is a Bluegrass Ball, but at this time there is no indication as to who will be the ringleader of the jam session. Its safe to assume that with Jeff Austin and the McCoury family around, everyone and anyone could be involved.

The good folks at Bloom Heavy are still promising one more band that is yet to be announced, but has stated that this band will be the “icing on the cake” for those on the fence about going to this festival. Based on the lineup, the little bit I know about the camp ground, and the fact that the attendance will be capped at 2500, this gathering has the potential to be legendary.
