The deadline to purchase early-bird multiple-day and single-day wristbands to attend the acclaimed Old Settler’s Music Festival is Saturday, January 15. Until then, the early-bird wristbands are available exclusively at www.oldsettlersmusicfest.org. Festival goers save up to 25 percent by purchasing early-bird wristbands. The 24th annual festival will be held, rain or shine, Thursday, April 14, Sunday, April 17, 2011, with an outstanding lineup of award-winning roots-music, bluegrass and Americana artists that continues to grow and now also includes Sonny Landreth, Band of Heathens, Jim Lauderdale, Warren Hood & the Goods, MilkDrive, Ruby Jane, The Wronglers with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, The Waynebillies (Mike Morgan’s new local group with Billy Bright and Wayne “Chojo” Jacques), Foster & Lloyd (a special reunion appearance by Radney Foster and Bill Lloyd), and Beatlegras. More artists are expected to be added soon. Previously announced were The Avett Brothers, Sam Bush, Tim O’Brien, Jake Shimabukuro, Langhorne Slim, Green Mountain Grass, Elliott Brood, Trampled by Turtles and the Emmitt-Nershi Band. They are among more than 30 acts that will perform on four stages at the Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch on
FM 1826, in the Texas Hill Country just south of Austin, Texas. Early-bird single-day wristbands for $50 for Friday or Saturday will end January 15, increase to $55 and then to $60 at the gate. Early-bird sales also end for the 4-day wristband with campground access (Thursday-Sunday), 3-day wristband with campground access (Friday-Sunday), 3-day no-camping wristband and the all-inclusive Platinum Pass. Children 12 and younger will be admitted to the Festival free. Camping access will certainly sell out. Superb roots-music and Americana performances on multiple stages and a singular Texas Hill Country campground experience have brought audiences to Old Settler’s Music Festival for 24 years. Many attendees return year after year for amazing shows by award-winning artists such as Patty Griffin, Peter Rowan, Buddy Miller, Travelin’ McCourys, Michelle Shocked, Bruce Hornsby, Yonder Mountain String Band, Nickel Creek, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Bela Fleck, and Vassar Clements and local favorites Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, The Belleville Outfit, Sarah Jarosz and 7 Walkers. A portion of the proceeds from the Festival will go to Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and Campfire USA-Balcones Council. For more information, visit www.oldsettlersmusicfest.org
