The 14th annual festival of Americana, folk, country and bluegrass music, Suwannee Springfest, is in swing until the 28th at the scenic campground, Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, in Live Oak, Florida.

Springfest is sister to the fall’s Magfest (scheduled this year for October 21-24), also organized by Randy and Beth Judy. They claim to offer “Guaranteed 100% Pure Organic Americana Music.”

All four days of the festival will be held “rain or shine, war or peace.”
