28th Annual Old Settler's Music Festival Preview
28th Annual Old Settler's Music Festival Preview
Rich Denis  4/1/2015

The sun is out, the birds are singing and that means the Old Settler’s Music Festival is about to begin;  Bluegrass, Folk and Americana music fans rejoice!  Going on 28 years strong, this year’s festival will be held over 4 days on 4 stages from April 16th through the 19th and has shaped up to be another year of great music.  

Held at the Salt Lick Pavillion and Camp Ben McCulloch, this years lineup includes over 30 acts that include Grammy award winning artists, the Mavericks, Hot Rize, The McCray Sisters, Austin favorite Shineyribs, Kindweb favorite and master of the mandolin Sam Bush!  If that wasn’t enough, Bluegrass lovers are going to love listening to Robert Earl Keen, telecaster titan Bill Kirchen and Ray Wylie Hubbard who are also on the line-up.

Coming in from out of town? With 4 day camping passes still at $250, come out and camp at the Ben McCulloch grounds and take part in the late night picking sessions that are sure to happen.  Camping not your thing, you can come out and enjoy the festivities starting at $150;  The smells of Salt Lick BBQ next door are free!  If you can’t come for the whole weekend, then consider coming out for a day.  Day wristbands can still be snatched up for $68!  If you are coming out for the day, make sure you check out the daily lineup below.  Whether for the day or the weekend, make sure you get out to Driftwood, TX and enjoy the festival!  If you can’t make it we’ll miss you but check back for a review of how it all went down.
