    Muddy Roots Spring Weekender 2015

    We are planning the 3rd annual Muddy Roots Spring Weekender now. Looking forward to returning to Nashville, Indiana to be amongst the lake and trees. This is a favorite for all those folks that enjoy a little down time with the Muddy family. We are only selling 300 tickets to this event so that is is nice and comfy like a family reunion. You can expect a super rootsy & bluesy vibe to the music.
    Oh and about the bands. We are having a bit of fun this year with that. We aren’t going to announce the bands at all. It’s going to be a big surprise. Imagine getting to the campground and seeing all your favorite underground roots acts hanging out, just waiting for you to get to set up camp so they can hang with you. This is going to keep the crowd to most intense muddy roots fans, the people their for the experience and not just a party.
    We aren’t going overboard with advertising this event. It’s almost underground. We’d like for you to tell folks about it. We are looking for the right people to spend the weekend with. The fb invite is HERE.

    There will be cabins for rent soon.

    Muddy Roots Spring Weekender Is Here! (INFO)

    The 2nd annual Spring Weekender is finally upon us my friends. We have some updates and information for you. We are going to have great weather, music and times!

    1. Our first update is with our Saturday menu.

    The original plan was to have our friend, Executive Chef Larry Finney, fly in to cook us a chuck wagon – dutch oven meal. He put a ton of work in to it sourcing all local meat and vegetables. Larry fell terribly ill and was hospitalized last week. He has had 6 surgeries since then. If you believe in good mojo or prayers please send it to him.
    We had to change our menu for the Saturday evening dinner with Joseph Huber. We are now serving brisket chili, corn bread, greens and baked beans. The brisket is slowed cooked in a smoker for a day before it is put in to the chili. You will LOVE IT! We unfortunately no longer have a vegetarian/vegan option for the dinner. If you are no longer interested in attending and would like a refund please email me at before Wednesday.
    We have 15 more seats left if you’d like to reserve one. Must reserve by Wednesday. . DINNER TICKETS

    2. We cut off bus ride reservations this Wednesday.

    So if you want to hop on a bus, drink beer, and party with live music all the way from Chicago to the Spring Weekender you better get off your ass and reserve a spot. Not a care in the world for a whole weekend. Now that is a beautiful thing.BUS RESERVATIONS

    3. If you’ve been waiting to buy your ticket NOW IS THE TIME!

    Tell your friends about us whether you can make it or not. Word of mouth is the life blood of small events. It is your support that make us able to continue bringing music to the fields. MRSW 2014 TICKET LINK

    4. Dr. Ralph Stanley.

    No updates. Just wanted to remind you that you are about to hangout with one of the most important living legends of Old Mountain Music, which some folks have called bluegrass. Just soak in how important this is and remember he almost retired on this tour. You may not get this chance again.

    5. We had a few cabins open up.

    Contact us now to rent one. They sleep 10 people and come with a small fridge, microwave and hot plate. All you need is pillows and blankies. They are $350- $400 for the weekend. That’s $20 a person to sleep indoors and not drive anywhere after drinking.

    6. Read this map!

    It has the layout info with updates & reservations. We may have an opening in 2 cabins and 1 rv hookup. When you arrive you will park in the entry lot and walk into the property if you are tent camping. No cars are allowed up there near the stage. Park nice and tight so everyone can fit. There will be shuttles taking folks in if they prefer and it only costs a buck a person courtesy of the venue.
