Now in its third year, the Muddy Roots Festival boasts an array of artists who pay allegiance to the honky-tonk and the juke joint, and dwell in imaginary rock ’n’ roll ranches and chicken shacks. Whatever you call the music of Pine Hill Haints, Johnny Foodstamp and Sarah Gayle Meech, these artists look back to the 1930s, or the ’50s — and in the case of Meech, to the commercial country music of the ’80s, although she uses a lot of electric guitar. For fans of demented rockabilly, the Michigan quintet known as The Goddamn Gallows will be on hand. You can catch L.C. Ulmer, a Mississippi blues performer whose no-chord drones back up such tunes as “Shake It Little Girl.”  Also performing are The Reverend Peyton’s Big Band, Wayne Hancock and Dale Watson. You can jump and jive, slither and slide, and get way inside American music.
