Backwoods at Mulberry Mountain returns for 2019 with new summer time dates! Warmer weather means more summer fun like cooling off in the streams and rivers high in the the Ozark National Forest.
New stage designs, more jam and bluegrass, and the bass heavy electronic you’ve come to wobble to will help make this the best festival yet. We’ve increase the amount of art in the Nirvana Woodlands this year and brought back some of the original stage designers and builders from 2015 and 2016.
More upgraded camping with electric and water will be available this year and vendor row will be adjusted to line the main concrete path in one long “Shakedown Street.”
New experiences await you on the Mountain this coming summer…

Bandolero (A Texas Grateful Dead Experience) at Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill
is a Texafied celebration of the Grateful Dead and kindred spirits.
Paul Corliss (lead vocals) and Tom Relihan (guitar) began shaping what would eventually become Bandolero the way many bands get their start — sweating out songs in the garage. Today Bandolero includes Corliss, Tom Relihan, Michael Relihan (bass), Rick Sukkar (guitar) and Brad Fletcher (drums).
Bandolero has grown from humble beginnings in North Dallas to become one of Dallas-Fort Worth’s favorite Grateful Dead-influenced rock bands — one with a distinctive Texas twist. Known for high-energy live performances that offer a unique interpretation of the Dead’s catalogue, Bandolero plays across DFW to growing audiences that embrace a new presentation of a familiar voice.
is a septet blending rock, hip hop, funk, and psychedelic. As if Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lettuce, and Pink Floyd all hopped in a rocket ship. Sax, DJ, drums, bass, and three members that rotate between rapping, singing, guitar, keys, synth, and percussion – an adventure of vibe and sound.

In 2018, with four albums under his belt and thousands of shows behind him, Texas singer-songwriter-guitarist Cas Haley was dividing his time between touring and spending time with his wife and kids on his Texas farm. He’d grown up immersed in ska/punk/skateboard culture and the classic reggae-pop of bands like UB40 and Sublime.
He’d long since absorbed the hard-knock lessons of his runner-up finish on an early season of America’s Got Talent. He’d worked with indie reggae label Easy Star Records, made other fruitful collaborations, and shared stages with the likes of UB40, Nahko and Medicine for the People, and Trevor Hall. All along, he’d gone his own independent way, building an enviable career on the road and in the studio.
Then came the jolt. His wife, Cassy, had a dangerous form of breast cancer. Surgery and chemo were in the cards. Suddenly life seemed a much darker place.
But writing together with Cassy, who was discovering a new strain of creativity as a songwriter, proved to be a big part of the family’s journey back to health. The lyrics to “Open Eyes,” which became the new album’s lead single, popped into Cas’s head while they
were driving to a follow-up appointment after Cassy’s surgery: “Confusion laid its claim on me/Open eyes but still can’t see.” The aptly named new album Lessons and Blessings comes out June 21, 2019 on Jimmy Buffett’s label Mailboat Records.
Lessons and Blessings features collaborations with Mihali Savoulidis (Twiddle), bluesman Seth Walker, and Josh Heinrichs. Cas and his band are slated to perform at major festivals
this summer and fall, including the Electric Forest Festival in Michigan, the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival, Shangri-La, Galactic Get Down, Project Earth, VIBE HIGH, and the MO
ROOTS Music and Arts Festival.

Jon Stickley Trio at Deep Ellum Art Company | May 25
Tickets on Sale 4/2 @ 12 PM!
“It’s not your father’s acoustic-guitar music—although Stickley’s pop showed him his first chords when he was 12 years old. Instead, Stickley’s Martin churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted other genres—all thoroughly integrated into a personal style,” writes Guitar Player Magazine.
Premier Guitar says, “Stickley’s trio… is not a traditional bluegrass group by any means… they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old timey standard ‘Blackberry Blossom.’”
“Stickley is a super-resourceful acoustic guitarist who uses the instrument in many surprising ways and whose timing is just flawless. Fiddler Lyndsay Pruett puts deep thought into her flowing solos, plus she adds little flourishes and sudden stops that elevate the music,” proclaims Nashville’s Music City Roots’ Craig Havighurst.
Jon Stickley Trio announces a change in lineup beginning in January 2018 with new drummer, Hunter Deacon, who is both classically trained and boasts heavy jazz influences. Hailing from the ever-hip Knoxville, Tennessee, Hunter studied with drummer Keith Brown and received a BM in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee. Deacon then went on to complete a six month residency at a jazz club in Hangzhou, China where he performed seven nights a week. Since his return, he’s played with Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, toured the country with Sam Lewis, and performs with guitarist Mike Baggetta.
Stickley says about the seemingly sudden lineup change “we’re really excited to add Hunter’s vibe to the mix, his creativity and willingness to experiment were two things that drew us to him, and Lyndsay and I were quickly surprised and inspired by what he’ll bring to the table.”
With inspiration ranging from from Green Day to Duran Duran to Tony Rice to Nirvana, Grateful Dead, David Grisman and beyond, the Trio is making waves with their unique sound. Along with releasing two full length albums and one EP in the past few years, the Trio has zig-zagged the nation, playing over 120 dates in 2017 alone. They are road tested and band geek approved!
