Located in Tilmon, about 12 miles southeast of Lockhart, the Old Settler's Music Festival has grown from a one-day bluegrass festival into a nationally renowned four-day event attracting thousands of loyal roots-music fans. Many return annually for performances by both legendary and up-and-coming bluegrass, folk, and Americana artists such as Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, the War and Treaty, Alison Krauss, Los Lobos, the Jayhawks, Milk Carton Kids and the McCrary Sisters, and local favorites including Sarah Jarosz, Shakey Graves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Shinyribs.
