ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF LIFE AND MUSIC
HITS 13TH YEAR ON JUNE 6-7, 2008
What began in 1996 as a small private concert for diehard fans of the legendary rock group Goose Creek Symphony has developed into a yearly "reunion" for folks that have a certain way of living and a certain taste in music. The Goose On The Lake Music Festival after twelve years has never been, nor ever will be a huge gathering of 30 bands on multiple stages jammed into a short weekend. What makes this festival so special is the light crowd, the carefully selected music and the overall energy that one feels when driving onto the farm of Lloyd and Donna Settle hidden deep in the country an hour north of Nashville in the small rural community of Allegre.
2007's show was recorded for a live album and broadcast on XM Radio in February. This year's show is set to be even more exciting with a diverse group of artists. Goose Creek Symphony, a band noted for being one of the first bands to blend a wide array of roots music, will be playing alongside artists who believe in that same concept. Barefoot Jerry is scheduled to make their triumphant return on Saturday, June 7th. Friday night the 1970's Goose Creek band will reunite for the first time since the end of that historic decade. Other performers scheduled are Todd Snider, Webb Wilder, Velvet Water and The Farewell Drifters.
No sponsors, no fancy light shows, no gimmicks, no uncomfortable security, no bullshit. This festival is as down home as it gets. Goose on the Lake invites you to be a part of their family reunion far away from stress of everyday city life and deep in the heart of ol' Kentucky.
