🌊 Saltwater Roots Festival @ Prescott Park

September 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

We are delighted to announce the return of the Saltwater Roots Festival as a part of the River House Restaurant Concert Series!

Featuring The Ammonium Maze, Julie Rhodes, and River Sister on Friday, September 2nd at 6pm

Returning for a second year, Saltwater Roots Festival is a feel good event that celebrates a collection of incredible local and regional talent who offer a variety of music spanning the genres of rock, roots, blues, folk and more.  This evening of entertainment is set to light up Prescott Park with vibrant energy through the power of live music.


 This year’s Saltwater Roots Festival will feature The Ammonium Maze, Julie Rhodes, and River Sister! 

In the Fall of 2021, Percy Hill’s Aaron Z Katz, Tom Powley and Jon Hawes created The Ammonium Maze. The band was born from a place of love and respect for the music and fanbase of Percy Hill. The three of them are committed to assembling a passionate group of musicians together in order to honor the legacy of Percy Hill as well evolve and advance the sound.

For the Country Record said of this next artist, “Sometimes you hear a voice and you immediately sit up and take notice. That’s what happened when I first listened to Julie Rhodes, her vocals big, soulful and growling through the speakers in a dark powerhouse sass that suits her Americana sound perfectly…”. Also touted as “A legacy in the making” by The Huffington Post, Julie Rhodes will certainly impress on the Wilcox Main Stage.

Lastly is the harmonizing, River Sister. Vocalists Stefanie Guzikowski and Elissa Margolin deliver a sultry, silky blend alongside the addictive grooves of bassist Nate Therrien and drummer PJ Donahue. Indeed, the regional press notes, “the combination of these pieces makes for a fresh, cathartic addition to the indie-folk cannon.” River Sister has opened for NPR tiny desk favorite, My Bubba, as well as international sensation, Emel Mathlouthi. Their performances are known for generating palpable joy.
