Bear Creek 2011 Adds Artists; Tickets On Sale Saturday

​A day before tickets are to go on sale, some nice artist additions have been announced for the 2011 Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival, which will take place at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak from November 11-13. The already stacked, funk heavy line-up -- which features Medeski, Scofield, Martin and Wood, the Funky Meters, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, and others -- has now grown even heavier with the addition of Soulive, the New Mastersounds, Marco Benevento Trio, and more. Locals Cypress, the Lee Boys, and the Spam All-Stars will also be throwing down. A line-up rich with funky, improvisational outfits should make for a real sweet weekend at the beloved mystical forest-venue which is the Suwannee. Camping amongst old growth trees, nights alive with drum circles, hammocks hanging everywhere in November Florida weather? Yes please.
