Heading into its third year as a non-profit, The Jalopy Theatre is presenting the only indoor music festival of it's size in NYC and its largest in-house event yet! The 5th Annual Roots n' Ruckus Fest will feature nearly 50+ acts on 2 stages, across 4 nights from Dec 11th-14th. The festival is a yearly culmination of talent that celebrates Jalopy's 12 year old weekly free musical showcase. The festival features new & fresh singer songwriters, Indian Raga, Cumbia, classic Village Klezmer, foot-thumpin' Rock n' Roll, traditional folk and blues, Ukrainian Village singing, classic Jazz songs, and much, much more. 
 
  In keeping with 10+ years of tradition, admission is free all four nights. Audience members will be asked to tip the musicians directly during each set. In doing this, the festival maintains its long tradition of affordable music programming, while paying tribute to the street musician scene from which the show was born. 
 
  "As venue after venue shuts its doors in this city the need for music makers and lovers to come together is ever greater. I've seen so many people play on this stage year after year who went on to share their music with so many more hearts. This festival's purpose is to remind folks of the power of this show's egalitarian format, which welcomes newcomers and veterans from different walks of musical life to cross-pollinate." - Feral Foster
