Point your rig to Springville, IN because all roads and flights lead to the Lawrence County Recreational Park! Fill up your 1970s Volkswagen van with biodiesel from your deep fryer or top off the tank on your Steam Powered Aereo-plain, regardless of how you get here, we want you at the Most Laid Back Festival In America, the John Hartford Memorial Festival taking place June 1-4, 2022.
Today we announced the final lineup and have added nine superlative bluegrass, jamgrass and old time bands to the roster. Just when you think it can’t get no better then it does. Who is new to the 2022 lineup? We dipped the musical cup deep into the soup of the gurglin' cracklin' cauldron and are serving up The High Hawks, Becky Buller Band, Julian Davis & The Situation, Mama Said String Band, Lily B Moonflower, Miles Over Mountains, Hot Brown Smackdown, River Valley Rangers, Joe Kidd & Sheila Burke.
We’ve now got almost 30 bands to facilitate all the “Vamps In The Middle” of your varied musical tastes. We believe this roster of talent is as eclectic and varied as the music of our festival namesake, John Hartford. In addition to the bands booked, we are also hosting a band contest and we’ve got a total 12 slots open for contestants. More about that later in this e-blast.
