Get back in touch with your American roots at the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, Aug. 1 to 3 at Peoples Natural Gas Park in Johnstown

Thirty-five folk, bluegrass, funk, country and acoustic bands make up the festival schedule, among them headliners Boz Scaggs, Leftover Salmon and Lee Fields & The Expressions.

Boz Scaggs gained notoriety in the 1960s as a proficient guitarist and singer with the Steve Miller Band. Well-known hits from his solo career include “Lido Shuffle,” “What Can I Say” and “Lowdown,” which sold more than 1 million copies in the United States. He is on tour promoting his newest album “Memphis,” released in March.

Pioneer of the “slamgrass” genre, Leftover Salmon, of Boulder, Colo., was one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock 'n' roll bars. The band's unique blend of the often-competing styles serves as its trademark, distinguishing it as leader of the jam-band scene. The group will be joined by pianist Bill Payne of Little Feat for its Aug. 1 performance.

Soul artist Lee Fields has toured with the likes of Kool and the Gang, O.V. Wright, Little Royal and other R&B legends throughout his 43-year career. Drawing from influences like James Brown and The Delfonics, Fields' and the Expressions' first full-length project together, the 2009 album “My World,” was called “one smoking mother of an old-sound soul record” by Pitchfork.

Other notable acts include Hurray for the Riff Raff, Big Sam's Funky Nation and The Iguanas.
