Rich Ruoff’s Sunday afternoon was a simple one.
He took a hot bath and lay down.
“I’m exhausted,” the director of the
2nd Annual Lancaster Roots & Blues Festival said around 5 p.m.
Not surprising, since he’d been running around like a madman well before the event started Friday evening, and for hours after it ended early Sunday morning.
Same goes for his director of operations, Sam Campbell.

An avid music junkie in Lancaster would have no problem getting his daily fix of tunes, thanks to the prominent local music scene.
Whether it’s attending a show at one of the many local venues, or learning about the next up-and-coming bands through social media, central Pennsylvania and, more specifically, Lancaster, has grown into a hub for musicians looking to break through to the next level.
This week, promoter Jeremy Weiss and CIRecords will look to showcase some of the most promising young artists at the fourth annual 7-1-7 Fest.
The event, from 3 to 10 p.m. Thursday, will feature 15 area bands on multiple stages at the Lancaster County Convention Center.
