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 CD
  • Ability to demonstrate a following

Mail us your latest CD or email us links to two of your latest audio files, performed live if available, plus a single-page bio about you (press quotes, where you’ve played, contact information). Send links to We do our best to get to everything.
