One other aspect to Bear Creek is the relative ease of getting to meet and talk to the performers. It is next to impossible at Wanee to get access to the musicians, because of the way the stages are set up, the size of the crowd, and...

Well, at Bear Creek, many of the musicians seem to go out of their way to interact with the festival goers. As an autograph hound, that is one aspect of Bear Creek I always enjoy.


Yeah every year I am amazed by the amount of artists I see cruisin' round on Golf Carts and just flat out enjoying themselves. I have never heard a single complaint about Bear Creek from anyone! ...other than people who can't take the cold nipz.

True! Saturday morning last year, I was waiting in line for the shower, when a guy behind me is talking to a friend. Turns out to be Scott Baston, the former lead singer for Moonshine Still (they were INCREDIBLE -- only got to see them once) and now leader of Saint Francis, who played in the music hall. So I got to talk to him for a bit.

Or seeing Skerik and Freekbass in the silent disco tent and then getting to talk to both of them (and have Skerik sign various CDs!).

It is just a warm (OK, not temperature-wise) festival. Roosevelt Collier, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, London Souls, Garaj Mahal -- it provides a real connection to the music.

That's awesome! Yeah I might have to end up being one of those autograph hounds this year, haven't ever done it in the past, but might be bout time :mrgreen:

I wonder if Bear Creek has a forum where we can arrange a M&G and all that good stuff... an additional place for the BOS/SOS to reside.

Scott is a friend. He sold me my oven at HH Greg a few yrs back. His new band, St Francis, is good. Check em out.
