Suwannee Hulaween 2013 - Photos and Review

Suwannee Hulaween 2013 - Photos and Review
The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park & Campground in Live Oak, Florida was the perfect setting for Hulaween, the String Cheese Incident's inaugural Halloween festival.

The Floorboards

 

The Floorboards are an Appalachian Roots Rock Ensemble hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

The band marries rock & roll and country roots with the sights and sounds of southern mountain towns. Jake and George shake the leaves from the trees. Bob wails like a steam whistle cutting through the pines. Patrick coaxes stringed cries from the hills and hollers. Matt tells the story.

The Floorboards have quickly become a staple in the southeast and have been branching out with purpose.  Having co-billed with acts such as Trampled by Turtles, Yarn, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Laura Reed, Big Daddy Love, Jesco White, and many others.  The band is picking up steam.  Catch them this year in a town near you.

Del McCoury Band
As much as I love modern jamgrass/newgrass variations, they just don’t bring me back to time spent camping/existing with my grandfather on his stomping grounds in the Smoky Mountains of NC, the way the old timers like Del McCoury can.

Mustang Music Festival - The Little Festival that Could

Imagine a small, intimate festival with a great mix of local/regional and national talent, top-notch hospitality, great food, all in one of the most beautiful and popular destinations on the East Coast. Well, you don’t have to imagine, because the Third Annual Mustang Music Festival in the Outer Banks at Corolla, NC delivered all that for a great price. Held October 11-12 this year, the festival is the brainchild of local restaurateur Michael Dianna and it takes place on the deck and in the parking lot outside his restaurant, Mike Dianna’s Grill Room. Since it’s scheduled after the tourist season ends, there’s no worry about heavy traffic. And while Mike’s restaurant is closed for the season, there are still plenty of local establishments open and lodging is reasonable and plentiful. He also hosts a one-day festival/jam in the spring before the season starts.
