 Roots n' Ruckus, a weekly roots music variety show hosted by Feral Foster, has become an internationally recognized fixture of the NYC music scene, showcasing up and coming stars and folk music favorites. The show began in the West Village in 2005, featuring folk music street performers from NYC and around the country, then moved to Brooklyn's Jalopy Theatre in early 2008.
