If Bluegrass, festivals and fun times are your thing, you will be as pleased as I am to hear there is a new festival in town.
Purple Hat Productions and Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) are teaming up on a new two-day event called Suwannee Summer Clusterpluck. Taking place June 23 & 24, 2017 at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida, the event will feature some of the best American bluegrass and new grass musicians touring today.
The phase one line up includes innovative flatpicking guitarist Larry Keel and his wife Jenny Keel, the gypsy jazz/bluegrass stylings of Asheville’s Jon Stickley Trio, boundary breaking bluegrass outlaws Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, and solo multi-instrumentalist Albert Simpson. Each act will perform two times at Clusterpluck, and fans can expect plenty of sit-ins and jams throughout the entire weekend as family, friends and musicians come together to participate in this joyous celebration of bluegrass music. Clusterpluck encourages its musicians to create a raucous foot-stomping good time with plenty of collaborations and surprises! Additional artist announcements coming soon!
Weekend passes with primitive camping and single day tickets are on sale now!
