Old Settlers Music Festival is Central Texas signature music event featuring Grammy - winning Americana and roots music, arts & crafts, camping, children's activities, a youth talent concert, and a selection of healthy, tasty food concessions & tantalizing libations. Their definition of "Americana" and "roots" music includes a variety of genres -- bluegrass, blues, jam bands, folk, country, gospel, and singer-songwriter (usually with bands).
