Instagram post 2250129308545449181_8121202905 A celebration of life: The Barflies @ Static Roots Festival 2020
If you have ever been to the Kilkenny Roots Festival in Ireland, you know it can be a quite exhausting four days. Plenty of years ago at our first trip to the Kilkenny Roots, we left on the Monday morning not knowing what we were going to miss.

A few days after our return to Germany, our friend Willie Meighan, The Boss, told us that the Monday is where it's all happening and even if there are only a few gigs taking place, he recommended to stay a day longer the next time.

While there are two or three gigs in the afternoon of the Roots Monday, The Barflies are ringing in the night at the fabulous Ryan's Bar. You have got to be early if you want to attend the show from inside because it's always going to be packed.

With their energetic performance, The Barflies make everyone join in and sing along. Experiencing their live performances is pure joy. The Barflies make you realize, we're in this together. It's a celebration of life.

And with their show, The Barflies bring back the energy needed for the long hours ahead.

The Barflies are playing the Static Roots Festival 2020 in remembrance of the late, great Willie Meighan, who has been a friend, an inspiration and mentor in setting up the Static Roots Festival

His 2019 album "Midwestern" is a piece of timeless, old-school country-beauty, and he is an amazing storyteller. Rocking Magpie says about him: "Another Canadian shows the Americans how to sing Americana"

Instagram post 2219096544413035620_8121202905 Just a couple of weeks ago we were introduced to Evangeline Gentle's self-titled debut album. And - holy cow - what an album it is. We were instantly blown away by her songs, her beautiful voice, and the atmosphere she creates. Goosebumps guaranteed.

Evangeline hails from Northeast Scotland but moved to Peterborough, Ontario, Canada aged 11. She misses living by the North Sea and hearing the sound of waves. We hope our Scottish friends will give her some proper support.

We are very much looking forward to seeing Evangeline Gentle at the Static Roots Festival 2020!

Dietmar Leibecke, festival organiser and promoter, appears to have got his line up pretty spot on so far, with two of the acts announced both in the running for UK Album of the Year at the AMA-UK awards later this month – Pete Gow for ‘Here There’s No Sirens’ and William the Conqueror for ‘Bleeding On The Soundtrack’.“ #americanauk #markunderwood #preview #petegow #williamtheconqueror #staticrootsfestival #americanamusic #country #altcountry #srf2020 #oberhausen #nrw #ruhrpottliebe #zentrumaltenberg #ambassadorofpeaceloverocknroll

Instagram post 2215914329760003842_8121202905 A limited number of early-bird-tickets for the Static Roots Festival 2020 are now available through the website:

https://staticrootsfestival.com/home/tickets/

Although we are still non-profit and non-sponsored (we're doing it all for the love of music and camaraderie), we are raising the ticket price for the early-bird-tickets from 48 EUR to 53 EUR. It helps us to reduce our private funding of the event and at the same time to make sure that we can still book the great acts you used to experience at the Static Roots Festival.

When we sold out the Static Roots Festival for the first time in 2019, still lots of people were disappointed because they wanted to buy their tickets at the door and finally failed to get in. So please make sure to buy your ticket in advance.

Thanks again for all your great support. It's you who make the Static Roots Festival a very special event!

Instagram post 2212367408244138041_8121202905 At the Static Ruhr Tour 2020 we will take you to Zeche Zollverein in Essen, a former coal mine and now a UNESCO world cultural heritage site - one of the most popular spots in the Ruhr valley.

The skeletal remains of the once flourishing mines and its coking plant watch over fresh construction: a housing project taking over part of the former plant. The coal washing complex is now the site of the Ruhr museum. Zeche Zollverein also houses the famous Red Dot Design Museum.

Some of you might remember our first Static Ruhr Tour 2018 when we did a quick trip over to Zeche Zollverein after visiting the mine slagheap "Rheinelbe". This year we will take the time for a guide and the proper Zollverein experience.

More details coming soon…
