Bear Creek 2009 by Chapman
The Bear Creek Music and Art Festival, November 11-14, 2010 at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida has announced a third round of artist additions. Bear Creek welcomes back Umphrey's McGee for two headlining shows on 11/11 and 11/12. The London Souls will make their first Bear Creek appearances, as will Papadosio and Lingo. Saltwater Grass, The Soular System and Curious Circus return to Bear Creek once again. Artist-at-large additions include saxman Pee Wee Ellis and Motet vocalist Jans Ingber.

The addition of Pee Wee Ellis, who will join Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley on the bill, rounds out the presence of The JBs, aka The James Brown Horns, at Bear Creek. These funk and soul pioneers have not appeared on the same stage in many years and Bear Creek is honored to bring together these legends once again.

Bear Creek early-bird tickets are $115 until June 2. Thursday night, 11/11 pre-party tickets are $40 until June 2. VIP tickets are also available. Info and ticket information is available at
