Guitar jams, hoop dance demonstrations, a band called Gangstagrass that blends hip-hop and bluegrass (for realz)… In a sea of samey summer festivals, Square Roots moves to the beat of its own drummer—in fact, its own circle of drummers, playing polyrhythms on djembes. Co-presented by the Old Town School of Folk Music, the live music, food and craft beer extravaganza in Lincoln Square eschews cheeseball nostalgia acts—no Sister Hazel (yesterday's Burger Fest headliner) here—in favor of an eclectic mix of alt-country, Americana, roots rock, soul and world musicians. Another distinguishing factor of Square Roots: It's fun for the whole fam, as these photos of Saturday's events indicate. In addition to performers such as Jon Langford & Skull Orchard, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, Fatoumata Diawara, Boukman Eksperyans and the aforementioned bluegrass rappers, day two of the fest featured yoga and printmaking crafts for kids, an African drum circle for familes and more. Square Roots closes tonight, July 14, with performances by the Black Lilies and Rajasthan Josh.
