AUSTIN STRING BAND FESTIVAL

The Austin String Band Festival 2015 preparations are in motion! 

DETAILS COMING SOON!

It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the Austin area, a music festival with small crowds, a lovely natural setting and close-in parking. Come discover the Austin String Band Festival out at Camp Ben McCulloch (right by the Salt Lick) in Driftwood. TX. Dance all night on Friday, then attend hands-on music and dance workshops under the trees early on Saturday, then kick back for a day and night of nonstop fiddles, banjos and guitars as more than two dozen bands take the stage. Sunday wraps it up with a gospel jam. Camping at its finest along Onion Creek.
