The Roots Roadshow series, presented by the American Roots Music Program, is a showcase that explores and celebrates America’s rich musical heritage. Each month, the series presents a variety show of student bands and ensembles performing styles such as country blues, old-time, bluegrass, new acoustic, Celtic, classic country, and Western swing. Whether it is a faculty-led ensemble, new student project, or band making its name in the Boston scene, you never know what will happen at a Roots Roadshow.

Come connect with Berklee College of Music’s thriving roots community and hear some of the college’s finest rising acoustic talent as they propel American roots music into the 21st century. This event features Berklee College of Music student Ariel Wyner, a singer, producer, arranger, composer, and mandolinist. New to roots music upon starting at the college last fall, he has taken a keen interest in the traditional picking style of Bill Monroe. He is a founding member and mandolinist/vocalist of the Ruta Beggars, a traditional bluegrass band that has performed at major bluegrass festivals in the Northeast, including Grey Fox, Ossipee, and Joe Val.
