Iowa Roots Round
Join songwriters Chad Elliott, Ryne Doughty, and Royce Johns for a rare demonstration of Midwest songcraft at the Iowa Roots Round show. All three will appear on stage together, swapping songs and stories during an in-the-round style event that is not to be missed.
Chad Elliott blends folk roots, swampy blues and soulful writing to deliver an original Americana sound. He has penned more than 1,500 songs in his career while also cultivating his skills as a painter, sculptor, illustrator, and author.
Ryne Doughty’s music is deeply rooted in real life stories of love, loss, work, and play. His stripped-down, earthy sound is directly influenced by the small, rural town where he was born and raised.
Royce Johns’ songwriting is a blend of country, folk, and Americana with the humor and tide to which many midwesterners can relate.
