Seymour's Crossroads Acoustic Fest announces dates, tickets
Organizers for the Crossroads Acoustic Fest announced dates and initial lineup for the third annual festival.
The roots music festival will take place in Seymour on April 23, 24 and 25, featuring national and international touring musicians from Tennessee, Alabama, West Virginia, Ohio and, of course, Indiana.
The initial lineup for the 2020 festival includes Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley, Sam Lewis, Nora Jane Struthers, The Contenders, Whiskey Wolves of the West, John R Miller, Stephen Wilson Jr., Sugarcane Jane, Ross Newell, Carolina Story, Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle and Flatland Harmony Experiment. More artists will be added to the lineup in the coming weeks.
The festival will take place at three listening rooms in downtown Seymour including the Jackson County Visitor Center, Rails Craft Brew and Eatery and the Fraternal Order of the Eagles.
Performances are scheduled from 5 to 11 p.m. each night with music occurring simultaneously at each room. Performance times will be released a week before the festival.
Tickets are on sale now at www.crossroadsacousticfest.com or the Jackson County Visitor Center, 100 N. Broadway St., Seymour. Weekend passes are available through Sunday, Jan. 19. for the "early bird" price of $30. A weekend pass provides attendees with two full nights of music and the ability to move from one listening room to another and
see the artists they most want to see.
Beginning Monday, Jan. 20, weekend passes will bump to $40 and single-day passes will be available for $25.
The festival has added a VIP night on Thursday, April 23, with a bonus night of music, discounts and the first opportunity to purchase festival posters created on the 1850s press at the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts in Seymour. VIP tickets are $20 more than the festival ticket.
Festival organizers have worked hard to secure top-level talent and
emerging stars in the national roots music scene. Festival organizer Shawn Busby said the committee also has tried to focus on finding artists with connections here.
"We also wanted to secure musicians with local connections and have included some in our lineup," he said.
Crossroads Acoustic Fest is a not-for-profit venture organized by the Crossroads Music Team and the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts. A portion of each ticket benefits the arts center.
