Old Settler's sneak peek

We got an early peek at the preliminary schedule for the newest "festival we're tracking," Old Settler's Music Festival, and there's much for festival-goers to look forward to. Among the highlights: The Rowan-Rice Quartet, the ubiquitous Uncle Earl g'earls, The Waybacks, Eddie From Ohio, Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriguez, and Chris Stuart & Backcountry.

There's plenty of regional talent on the bill as well, including a return engagement of teen mandolin sensation Sarah Jarosz. The festival runs April 20-23 just outside Austin in Driftwood, Tex. For more on the festival visit the Old Settler's website.

On another note, it is great to know that Eddie From Ohio is touring again, after vocalist Julie Murphy Wells's bout with breast cancer last fall. If you haven't heard EFO before, you are in for a treat.
