Scott Ernest brought his company Mountain Metal Arts to Roots N Blues N BBQ from Pueblo, CO. His booth included wall sculptures and wind chimes crafted from recycled copper, brass and steel that he collects from scrapyards and anywhere else he can find it. Ernest said he decided to bring his company to Columbia, MO because his friend and fellow festival vendor told him that the show was great. “The people are really nice,” he said. “The music is great, and the weather is perfect. It’s a great location. I mean, what’s not to love?”
Nick Butler has been to every single Roots N Blues N BBQ since the first one in 2007. Of all of the bands he has seen at the annual festival, he said that his favorite is The Black Crowes (from the 2013 festival) because they had a great stage presence. He said his favorite food vendor is Big Daddy’s BBQ because he likes the fact that they are a local and not part of a big chain. Butler is the Project Director for Community Engagement in the Center for Health Policy at the University of Missouri and is a trained facilitator for inclusion work. “I feel privileged to be here,” he said. “I’d just love to see it expand out more to be a bit more inclusive. I feel like a lot of people who should be here aren’t.”
