Mighty Rover's Tribute to Merle Haggard

When we first saw the tribute to Merle at the Humboldt Folklife festival we knew we needed to bring the show to Redwood Coast Music Festival for an encore.  We reached out to band leader Ken Jorgenson who put together a collection of some of Humboldt's finest to take the stage in honor of the Country legend.



Harry Duncan, renowned producer and host of the popular In The Soul Kitchen show on KCSM, will spin his Roots & Rhythm mix for listening and dancing when the doors open and on set changes throughout the show.

Redwood Coast Music Festival is proud to partner with Old Town Eureka, Eureka Main St. to coordinate this new event to Arts Alive Eureka on Saturday April 7.  The restaurants, galleries and shops will all be open and we'll have great music in 9 different venues throughout this historic landmark location.
