Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival is thrilled to announce a once in a lifetime set of music to be performed on Sunday, November 14. The incredible musicians of Lettuce will play a special set of music honoring the distinguished careers of Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. The set will devote 30 minutes to each of their respective careers, including their solo work, their time together with James Brown and other work. Maceo, Fred and Pee Wee will play with Lettuce throughout this set and Bear Creek fans can look forward to an amazing funk retrospective.

In addition to all of the great music already scheduled, Bear Creek is excited to announce several additions to the weekend. On Saturday, November 13, world acclaimed DJ and producer Bonobo (aka Simon Green) will perform DJ Set, in addition to playing another set with his live band at the festival. The Dead Kenny Gs will also play a second set, performing both Friday and Saturday nights of the weekend, and Freekbass has been added as Artist-at-Large at Bear Creek.

Now there is a bit more time to benefit from the $145 early ticket pricing for Bear Creek. Weekend festival passes will remain at $145 until 11:59PM on Tuesday, October 12. Thereafter, ticket price will rise to $155. Buy early and save a few bucks!

In honor of famed rock artist Ralph Steadman, who created the official 2010 Bear Creek Music and Art Festival poster, Bear Creek is excited to announce the “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Costume Party” on Saturday night. Let your freaky imaginations run wild and help fill the Spirit of the Suwannee with a colorful swirl of energy and fun.
