Revival Fest returns to Georgia State Railroad Museum on Sept. 30

Revival Fest took a break in 2016, but the stellar festival returns this year on Sept. 30 at the Georgia State Railroad Museum, which has been a tremendous venue for the daylong event planned by the folks at MusicFile Productions/Savannah Stopover.

This year’s lineup includes headliner Blitzen Trapper. The Portland, Oregon-based rock/alt-country band played Savannah a couple of years ago for a soldout show at The Jinx. I’m especially excited for the return of T. Hardy Morris and his band The Hardknocks, and the event also features three Savannah acts: The Train Wrecks, Bottles & Cans, and the Sweet Thunder Strolling Band.

Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, Ranky Tanky, Blackfoot Gypsies, Cale Tyson, and Caleb Caudle round out the lineup.

We’ll have a longer preview of of the event soon, but here’s a quick video of Big Sam’s Funky Nation from New Orleans and a couple of photos:
