Bear Creek Music Festival 2011: The Videos

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…
