Partial Lineup Announced; Early Bird Tickets on Sale Now
We are so pleased with the beginnings of our lineup, we just had to share it with you. We always try to bring back some old favorites — bluegrass legends The Del McCoury Band, jam band favorites Leftover Salmon and dobro master Jerry Douglas. We reached way back for these – Leftover Salmon since 2002 (or was it 2000?), Jerry Douglas since 2003, and Del since 2006. So it was time.
It’s also time for some new artists to make their debuts. And so far we’ve got some good ones – the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, and Justin Townes Earle. Old time string music takes center stage with the Grammy Award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops. Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out earned their own set of awards – seven consecutive awards for ‘Vocal Group of the Year’ and five for Russell Moore for ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle also has bragging rights to several Americana Music Association awards.
We’ve got two bands that make everyone dance – Fred Eaglesmith and The Gourds. Plus Peter Rowan, Terri Hendrix, Green Mountain Grass and Casey Driessen Singularity. Rising stars — Elephant Revival — described as “transcendental folk” also make their Old Settler’s debut. Youth competition winner Kimberly Zielnicki, already known for her work in Lost and Nameless Orchestra, also performs.
So that’s about one-third of our roster. We hope that gives you a little taste of what we’ve got in store for you. Much more to come.
Early Bird Tickets are on sale at 10 am today. You can save as much as 24% off the gate prices. Camping has sold out the last two years – we expect it will again. This year we are only selling a limited number of tickets at Early Bird prices, so get yours soon.
We’ll see you at Old Settler’s!
PS Just in! Americana original Son Volt is also confirmed for Old Settler’s.
