Following November’s strong initial lineup announcement, Old Settler’s Music Festival organizers have now revealed the daily schedule for their 2019 outing, transpiring April 11-14 in Tilmon, near Lockhart.
A special acoustic performance from Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit tops a relentless Friday run that also includes bluegrass elder statesman Del McCoury and siren violinist Amanda Shires, not to mention top-tier talents in Mandolin Orange, James Hunter Six, and John Moreland. On Saturday, Brandi Carlile tops a bill featuring Hayes Carll, Tex-Mex contingent Los Legends, current Grammy nominees Wood & Wire, and Sarah Grace, who won OSMF’s youth talent competition last year. Sunday promises the almighty Shinyribs, as well as a surprise collaboration to open the 32-years-running roots fest’s final day.
Deep-voiced Southern blues/gospel singer Paul Thorn headlines pre-festivities on Thursday, which also include young, North Carolina folk/country string band Mipso. The schedule drop dually reveals the going-on at ShhhTimes – a far-off, late-night stage where artists play un-amplified to a hushed audience. That schedule looks like so:
Thursday: Mipso, John Elliot, Batty Jr.
Friday: South Austin Jug Band, Calliope Musicals, Middlespoon
Saturday: Wood & Wire, Ley Line, McMercy Family Band.
Tickets for OSMF are on sale now.
