This year’s Old Music Festival is going on now until April 19th in Austin, TX. After having its debut season in 1987 the Festival is now known far and wide for its celebration of Americana and roots music. Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch. With a prime spot among the shady trees and sunny meadows at the height of bluebonnet season this sounds like the way to spend a weekend. The music continues nonstop for four straight days, with concerts, workshops, and impromptu jam sessions all day and throughout the night.

This year their line up includes The Mavericks, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Bush, Hot Rize, JD McPherson, Jeff Austin Band, Jake Shimabukuro, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many, many more. Tickets are still available (but camping is sold out). We would go if we could by check out their site and buying tickets, next year we will plan ahead and buy camping tickets before they sell out.
