Giddy Ups Spring Fling (03/14-18/2018)

Since 2009, Giddy Ups has been hosting the Spring Fling…5 days featuring 55 musical artists.  Songwriters, singers, and full bands come to introduce us to their music.

Last year, we were excited because we’d be retired this year and would be able to see all the performers.  Unfortunately, we didn’t count on the allergies!  If you live in Texas, you know what we mean.  If you live elsewhere, just imagine the most horrible cold you’ve ever had that lasts for weeks instead of days.  So, we didn’t get to see them all but, the ones we did see were all super special.

Below is the full lineup.  Be sure to click on the pages numbers at the bottom to go through each day.  To get more information on the artists, see A. Michael Uhlmann’s blog post with information on each artist, links to their website and Facebook pages, and where to find their music.  It’s a great resource!  Also, on the Spring Fling Music Festival Facebook page, there is a picture of every artist and a short write-up about them that was done during the festival. 28576792_10155943767636708_1591310309504538901_n

Giddy Ups’ Spring Fling (03/16-20/2011)

Austin’s 2 week big festival in the spring is SXSW with “interactive”, “film”, and “music” divisions.  It’s wonderful!!  It’s downtown!!  People from all over the world attend!!  But, a side benefit is all the non-SXSW events that happen at the same time.  One of these is Giddy Ups Spring Fling Music Festival.  55 bands in 5 days…..some local…..some from other Texas towns…..some from other states……some even from other countries…..all of them great!  Nancy doesn’t restrict it to one genre either……country, rock, jazz, you can hear it all.   We didn’t have Nancy’s stamina to see every band, we saw a lot of them.   🙂 Schedule for the 2011 Giddy Ups Spring Fling
