In 1987, the first Old Settler’s Music Festival was held at Old Settler’s Park, in the Austin suburb of Round Rock. Since then, it’s grown into a nationally-known celebration of Americana and roots music in all its forms – with past headliners including Patty Griffin, Bela Fleck, Doc Watson, Joan Osborne, Bruce Hornsby, Iron & Wine, Alison Krauss, the Avett Brothers, and Robert Earl Keen.
We’ve grown a lot since the early days. But we still maintain our down-home, Texas-friendly vibe. Located just outside of Austin, the festival takes place at Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch, just minutes from Austin . It’s a landscape of shady trees and sunny meadows at the height of bluebonnet season. The music continues nonstop for four straight days, with concerts, workshops, and impromptu jam sessions all day and throughout the night.http://www.oldsettlersmusicfest.org/
