Delivering pure, simple, and timeless rustic songs touching on country, bluegrass, and rural blues, husband-and-wife duo Cameron Federal and Russell Cook produce artful work on par with the finest of the expansive genre. This last minute booking rounds out an already-busting-at-the-seams smorgasbord of the best in traditional musicians gathering for the festival.Producer Kip Beacco stated; “It’s hard to imagine it can get much better, short of bringing back some of our Roots heroes who have long since passed on. We keep getting lucky -- we were able to secure Little Country Giants at the last minute.” “Participation is preservation” is the motto of Oldtone Productions. This event is a full participatory festival with performances, workshops, informal jam sessions and all-ages entertainment on the main stage, workshop and dance stages, and throughout the campground. Participants and artists are dedicated to playing Old-time music in the Old-time way. The artists perform old and new songs which reflect the timeless themes of love, loss, family, and adventure, with an underlying sound that is pure and organic, like it was in the days gone by. "Kip, Matt, and Jim have a really clear vision of the experience they want to create and a deep passion for this music." states producer Beth Carlson.The lineup this year starts with nationally known bands Foghorn StringbandThe RevelersJesse LegéDavid Davis and the Warrior River Boys and  Karl Shifflet and Big Country Show, and many regional and local bands.
