Roots-Americana-jam collective Big Leg Emma will present its third annual "Jammin' in the Vines" festival on Saturday at the Willow Creek Winery (2627 Chapin Road in Silver Creek). The band recently added long-serving Buffalo drummer/percussionist Corey Kertzie to its ranks, and the buzz based on the group's recent shows suggests that the addition of Kertzie has breathed new life into the Big Leg Emma sound.
For its third "Jammin' in the Vines," Big Leg Emma has recruited world beat/jam collective Rusted Root, as well alt-rock outfit Red Wanting Blue (from Athens, Ohio) and Fredonia's Gina V. Trio.
The music kicks off at 4 p.m. Saturday and concludes with a midnight fireworks display, following Rusted Root's set. Tickets are $25 advance, $30 day of show (Tickets.com). Camping on site is $10 per couple. Gates at the Willow Creek Winery will open at 2 p.m. Saturday.
