Music festival lineups are sprouting up faster than spring flowers and it looks like 2021 is going to be a great year to hear live music! With most of the festivals planning for the fall, you may be looking for some summer plans. Enter Byrd’s Creek Music Festival which is scheduled for July 8-11 in Crossville, Tennessee.
The festival announced its initial lineup a couple weeks ago and has now added additional artists. There’s more than enough to please all Americana, folk, and bluegrass fans from casual to aficionado. It’s hard to resist the toe-tapping string band music from Lost Dog Street Band, the gothic, traditional country of Sierra Ferrell, or the classic Americana/folk of Eric Bolander. The recent additions include If Birds Could Fly, Daytripper, and Sad Daddy with Melissa Carper. In case you missed it, Carper recently released a gem of a traditional country album that’s still ranking high in the Americana Music charts! We have made a Spotify Playlist for you to explore. We guarantee there’s something you’ll like.
We of course understand that many of you are going to be extra careful this summer. We are too. However, it looks like Byrd’s Creek is taking a bunch of extra steps to keep safety in mind. Mother Church Pew visited the festival in 2018 and was pleasantly surprised about how the limited number of tickets made it feel special. For 2021, Byrd’s Creek is promising extremely limited ticket sales to help keep crowd contact minimal and to ensure compliance with any health mandates. Additionally, hand washing stations will be placed throughout the grounds. Also, if you choose to camp at the festival, the camping area is spacious allowing plenty of room for social distancing.
Tickets are on sale now and as we noted, they are extremely limited. Options include General Admission with camping, VIP, and the Oaklawn Farms “Friend of the Farm” Pass. If this year’s festival follows the pattern of prior years, the live music will start on Friday. You can get additional information on the Byrd’s Creek Music Festival website here. We can’t wait to see you in July!
