WKAR/Aaron Young

Saturday, June 7th is the date of the fifth annual Pumpstock Music Festival. The annual gathering in East Lansing’s Bailey Park features live American roots music and local food.

Current State’s Friday Music Series featured one of the artists performing at Pumpstock, The Spragues, led by Jerry Sprague.

Current State talks with the festival’s coordinator Dudley Smith, more commonly known as “Smitty.” He says Pumpstock has been going on for five years and has been growing ever since. They have added food vendors and local openers to help with the local flavor of the event.
