Kickin It On The Creek 2018 TEASER.jpg

Well I’m going to be honest with you friends a LOT of you will be disappointed about this edition of my festival series… WHY…because THIS ONE IS ALREADY A SELLOUT. Hell the director, and his wife informed me via phone that they COULD HAVE SOLD every ticket PRE SALE! I’ll be honest with you ONLY Muddy Roots could boast that right now, and rightfully so. This is a REALLY relaxed atmosphere event here, and I understand it’s one big family.

Now, granted they DO cap it off at a thousand tickets per year due to limited space.. And that’s OK folks…really it is…but here is a nice survival guide for those that DID get a ticket. I always got the whole spectrum covered, maybe you don’t know the people involved like Mr. Jimbo Valentine who designs the posters, or Mr.J.J. Waters who runs the group Honky Tonk Heros in the West Virginia area, who actually turned me onto almost all of these artists.

I’m going to be relentlessly covering this event with MUCH MORE little bells and whistles side projects coming, trust you me. This event needs no embellishment from me, it has exploded on it’s own and now I am SO EXCITED to have been invited to partake in this. I’m going to bring you the BEST coverage from a professional point of view…I been doing this a LONG TIME people and I do it from the heart.

As many of you know I have indeed been covering MANY of these artists that are involved with this event here. Each of these names will direct you to their link for you to study, in case you bought tickets and didn’t know all of the artists involved.

You know I want to tell you what differentiates this festival from ANY OTHER across the United States. This one is on a family farm property, it’s THE FURTHEST one from a corporate festival you will EVER FIND. I mean even other DIY fests have them at a campground or venue…THIS IS NOT A VENUE. This is a family area. This festival is VERY VERY special, and has grown into an epic pinnacle of it’s scene.

Even I had some fun researching a few of them here, I know for a FACT I had fun at Master Musician’s Festival covering some of these folks and also at W.B.Walker’s five year anniversary show.. Also, many of them I have covered at other venues and events this year. READY here is your lineup:
