From Keller Williams
“This winter, Keller wants everyone to “Shut the Folk Up and Listen”! Starting in January, Keller will continue his 2016 collaboration with Leo Kottke by bringing his newest project, “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” to 24 cities around the country! For this tour Keller goes back to his roots, with just an acoustic guitar, he’ll share the stage with one of his musical idols, flat picking six and twelve string guitarist Leo Kottke. This unique evening of music features solo sets by both artists and spontaneous collaborations between the two.
In addition to the 24 dates with Leo Kottke, the Pacific Northwest will get an album-release run (stay tuned for more info on this front!) and the midwest will get some Keller Solo love. ”
From Jam Cruise 2017
“Jam Cruise is a one-of-a-kind music and vacation experience featuring 5 days of music aboard a luxurious cruise ship, the Norwegian Pearl. Now in it’s 15th sailing, Jam Cruise has grown into a coveted destination and yearly retreat for both music lovers and artists alike. With multiple venues on the ship, around-the-clock onboard music, port stops in beautiful and tropical locales, and some the coolest fans on the planet, it’s easy to see what makes Jam Cruise so unique and special. Every year is a new adventure. Jam Cruise cabins are SOLD OUT, so join the waitlist.”

After much thought and consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we announce that we will not be producing Magnolia Fest at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in 2016. Instead we will host a Magnolia Fest 20th Anniversary Celebration in St Augustine at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. It will be a one day event on Saturday, October 15 with a pre-party on Friday, October 14. St Augustine is a beautiful city with wonderful beaches, there are a lot of hotels and also camping right next to the venue, with easy access to the Jacksonville Airport. Details will be released in the next couple of weeks.
Rising costs for talent, production and the inability to negotiate a deal with the Spirit of Suwannee make it impossible to do this event in Live Oak without a substantial increase in ticket prices or a reduction in the quality of the show.
Magnolia Fest has been a magical experience for years and a place for family and friends to come together every fall to enjoy some of the best music in the country. Always cherish those memories.
