Suwannee Roots Revival has officially detailed its 2024 presentation, returning to Live Oak, Fla.’s Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park on October 10-13. For its eighth annual presentation, the now renowned festival has assembled a bill that renews its longstanding tradition of pairing genre forerunners with up-and-coming artists, balancing first-time sets from Americana icons with a range of familiar faces to returning attendees. This four-day event will be led by Old Crow Medicine Show, Yonder Mountain String Band, Peter Rowan Band and Donna the Buffalo, topping a bill of ten further acts with more to be announced.

Suwannee Roots Revival’s foremost acts–Grammy-winning folk ensemble Old Crow Medicine Show and acclaimed Colorado jamgrass quartet Yonder Mountain String Band–will both mark series debut appearances, pooling their combined 50-plus years of experience on the cutting edge of the roots world to lend the festival’s eighth iteration inarguable prestige. Legendary bluegrass figurehead Rowan and genre-bending folk-rock quintet Donna the Buffalo will figure as secondary headliners, both returning for their eighth consecutive appearances since supporting the festival’s 2016 debut. Donna the Buffalo will celebrate this legacy with a distinct performance on each of the event’s four days, as vocalist Tara Nevins offers, “this is basically our family here.”

Other performers billed for this year’s revival include Della Mae, Henhouse Prowlers, The Ain’t Sisters, Snake Oil Medicine Show, Kaleta & Super Yamba Band and more. Offstage, attendees can expect a family-friendly immersive experience, complete with gourmet catering and local crafts in the Vendor Village, hands-on workshops at the Music Farmers Stage and an open invitation to join jams at Slopryland and the Bill Monroe Shrine, two or the venue’s campground pickin’ party sites. All this excitement will occur in the heart of the natural wonder that is SOSMP, a sprawling 800-acre densely wooded natural refuge along the Suwannee River.

“From the very beginning, in 1997, with our first festival at SOSMP, we set an intention of a community of love and healing and music and positive impact on the lives of the people who were there,” shares Festival Director Beth Judy. “And we attracted those people who needed that in their lives, and many of them are still coming. The Suwannee Roots Revival is a current version of the events we began so long ago when music festivals were just starting to pop up again after Jerry’s passing… now we are gathering everyone together for the big Reunion and Revival of what commenced during those early years.”
