Old Settler's on tap

From our friend Jim Dirden, festival photographer:

From roots to bluegrass to Americana, the Old Settler's Music Festival showcases some of the best music on the planet. The festival is held in the gorgeous Texas hill country outside of Austin at the height of the bluebonnet and wildflower season. This year it is April 19-22. OSMF is a family-oriented event that offers much more that just great music: camping, jamming, performance workshops, kids activities, arts and crafts, youth talent competition and more. There's plenty of shade and plenty of free parking.

The 2007 lineup includes: Sam Bush, Joan Osborne, Iris DeMent, New Monsoon, Honkytonk Homeslice featuring Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident, Pyschograss (Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Todd Phillips, Tony Trischka, David Grier), Peter Rowan, Split Lip Rayfield, Big Sandy & Los Straitjackets, Robbie Fulks & Danny Barnes, Ruthie Foster, Darrell Scott, Mary Gauthier, Jim Lauderdale, John Cowan Band, Sarah Jarosz, Red Stick Ramblers, Grupo Fantasma, Green Mountain Grass, Flounders without Eyes, Karen Abrahams, Classical Grass, Sarah Borges & the Broken Singles, Slim Richey & Kat's Meow and 2006 Youth Competition Winner Samantha Miller.

The almost-legendary Thursday evening “settling in concert” will feature Slaid Cleaves in a one-night-only festival performance.
