Come play on our stages

In general, Old Settler’s books approximately 30 artists for each festival. Every year, we work to book the perfect mix of established acts, local favorites, and breakout artists playing all flavors of roots music including bluegrass, folk, acoustic, country, gospel, blues, and traditional.

If you’re an established musician and you’d like to talk about performing with us, have your booking agent get in touch. If you’re a new artist looking to play in the festival, be aware that we book very few new artists. Still, who knows? You could be an exception.

What we’re looking for

  • Great music that falls within the broad category of Americana roots music
  • At least one professionally-recorded album
  • At least two professionally-shot videos of live-performances
  • Ability to demonstrate a following

Send two recent videos of live performances to featuring the exact band configuration you are pitching.  Performance should be in front of a live audience (bonus if in a festival setting) and include audience shots.  Include information such as press quotes, where you’ve played, and bands with whom you have shared bills, in the body of the email.  We do our best to get to everything.
