The 2011 edition of the Bear Creek Music Festival went off without a hitch this weekend in Live Oak, Florida, where a video taping crew called Cheesehead Productions was on hand to film a number of performances all weekend long. For those of us who couldn’t attend, these clips are a god send as they allow us to witness some of the magic that happened at Bear Creek.
We’ve compiled eight of our faves that have appeared on CP’s YouTube channel so far for your viewing pleasure. Let’s start with a clip of the Jennifer Hartswick Band with the Snarky Puppy Horns tearing through The Jackson’s 5 Blame It On The Boogie…

We’ve got more videos embedded and a full list of hi-def Bear Creek clips below.
Next, let’s check out the Anders Osborne Trio, augmented by guitarist Billy Iuso, covering Cortez The Killer…

Speaking of Anders, he got sick and was unable to perform Sticky Fingers with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. The show went on as planned for KDTU with Roosevelt Collier along as a special guest. Here’s their version of Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’…

A number of the “At Large” musicians performing at the fest including Johnny Vidacovich, Robert Walter, Reed Mathis, Will Bernard, Jamie McLean, Nikki Glaspie and Billy Iuso teamed up as Orchestra At Large to offer the playful Doctor Watson…

We nicknamed Bear Creek 2011 as “Jen-a-palooza” thanks to all the appearances HT friend Jennifer Hartswick was set to make throughout the weekend. Watch her rapping skills on TAB’s cover of Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz…

Eric Krasno was another musician who made his presence felt all weekend long. His Soulive outfit was joined by Corey Glover for a scorching rendition of Manic Depression…
