Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Flatt Lonesome2014 Emerging Artist of the Year Flatt Lonesome will be the featured entertainment at this year's City of Burnet Bluegrass Festival. Named one of the “Five Rising Roots Acts to Watch in 2015” by CMT Edge, Flatt Lonesome made their Texas debut last year at Haley Nelson Park. Also entertaining will be the Sieker Band and Dueling Hearts.

A major change to the event this year is the addition of The Burnet Old Time Fiddler's Contest. The Fiddler's Contest will be held earlier in the day, followed by open mic (assuming time allows) and then followed by the Bluegrass concerts beginning at 4 pm.

The event will be held at Haley Nelson Park, 301 Garden Trails Drive (Just off Highway 29 West) in Burnet. Vendors and food will be available on site but coolers and lawn chairs are welcome. Admission to the festival is free.

The Bluegrass Festival and Fiddler’s Contest is the final event in the Burnet 2015 Summer Concert Series which includes entertainers such as Cory Morrow, Whiskey Myers and Wade Bowen.
