Blues Traveler to Headline Dominion Riverrock Festival

I admit, I’m of the age where this announcement carries a whiff of chuckle-inducing nostalgia. Channeling their inner Innsbrook After Hours, Sports Backers announced today the full list of music acts performing at this year’s Dominion Riverrock festival. On Friday, May 15th, Greensky Bluegrass will take the stage at 7:45 p.m. On Saturday, May 16th, Blues Traveler will be the headliner, taking the stage at 8 p.m. The seventh annual outdoor sports and music festival will be held on Brown’s Island and Historic Tredegar in Richmond on May 15-17. All concerts are free and open to the public.

That’s right, Richmond: You and John Popper get to sing “Run Around” together one more time live.

If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party and rock out on stage while playing their full catalogue of entertaining, critically acclaimed songs. Perhaps best of all, they are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy.

17 years after their breakthrough, Grammy Award-winning hit ‘Run-Around,’ Blues Traveler continues to excite fans around the world. On their instantly infectious, musically expansive 11th studio album, ‘Suzie Cracks the Whip,’ Blues Traveler remains creatively focused while dramatically expanding their musical horizons upon celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.
