15 Jan 15 Old Settler’s Gets Big Names

AUSTIN, Texas — Bluegrass-picking Robert Earl Keen, Telecaster titan Bill Kirchen and “snake farmer” Ray Wylie Hubbard are the latest names added to the talent roster for the 28th annual Old Settler’s Music Festival, happening Thursday through Sunday, April 16-19, at the Salt Lick BBQ Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch outside of Austin. Also joining the lineup are Knoxville, Tenn., roots rockers the Black Lillies, famed Cajun band the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Austin soul Band Roxy Roca.Old Settlers 2015

The talent-packed four-day event, which takes place amid blooming wildflowers in the heart of Texas’ hill country, features 30 roots music acts from beloved vets to hot new names. This year’s buzz-worthy artists also include Latin-influenced Americana stars the Mavericks, mandolin master Sam Bush, ukulele phenomenon Jake Shimabukuro, singer-songwriter (and now Dripping Springs resident) Israel Nash and Austin’s own Shinyribs. Country royals Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, notable bluegrass bands Hot Rize and the Infamous Stringdusters and gospel queens the McCrary Sisters are also among the acts filling four stages, including one for campers only. (See daily lineup below.)

Discounted single-day wristbands and packages with and without camping are still available. For more information, go to oldsettlersmusicfest.org.
