The return of the Lehigh Roots Festival June 1-2 will offer a lesson in the different types of bluegrass music.

This year’s festival brings 22 bands and artists that represent a wide spectrum of bluegrass music in a two-night, three day music event at the Elks Lake at 1601 Montana Rd., festival organizer Mike Jewell said. He and his wife toured American roots festivals throughout the country to find local, regional and national artists that could bring a different taste of bluegrass to Iola to raise money for the Iola Elks lodge.

“It’s total variety,” Jewell said. “We offer an experience you can’t get anywhere else.”
