Garrett Dutton aka “G.Love” of G. Love & Special Sauce has announced the inaugural Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival coinciding in celebration of the band’s 25th anniversary. The one-day event is scheduled for September 15th, 2018, and will take place along the beautiful shores of Nauset Beach in the town of Orleans, MA. Headliners G. Love & Special Sauce will be joined by singer-songwriter Citizen Cope, soulful Hawaiian outfit Ron Artis II and The Truth, and Boston Funk Ambassadors Ripe.Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival is a celebration of family, live music, community, and the natural environment of Cape Cod. This 10-mile stretch of sandy beach offers swimming and fishing, plus surfing in non-protected areas. Dutton explains that “Orleans, Massachusetts has been our home for seven years now and we have fallen completely in love with the town, the people, and the beautiful pristine nature which surrounds the Cape. From surfing to paddle boarding, fishing and bird watching, hiking, biking, eating, drinking–the Cape has it all.”The event, curated by Dutton, features bands and performers that have personally resonated with him musically. The festival is about “bringing to the stage a musical family that we have been cultivating for 25 years strong,” he says. Local Orleans resident Mike McNamara, owner and co-founder of The Hog Island Beer Co, has been an essential proponent of the Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival. As the exclusive beer provider for the festival, Hog Island Beer Co will create a beer garden for guests to sip craft beers and enjoy the event’s natural beauty.
