California Roots Festival – second round of artists announced

This may not be a surprise to anyone following the reggae rock scene, but if you've been living under a rock for the past several months, the fine folks at California Roots just announced it's second set of artists to perform the 2014 festival at the iconic Monterey Fair Grounds in sunny California. If you're even remotely familiar with the genre of music, you really owe it to yourself to experience this annual three day event.
