2015 Gram Parsons Guitar Pull 9/25 & 26 - Waycross, GA

I heard about the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and Tribute Festival on another thread on Air Forums. Sounds like an interesting music festival. The GPGP seems laid back/low key and the price is right - $50/person for two days of music and $30 for RV camping.

Guitar Pull is a phrase similar to jam session. The festival is not simply a jam session - there are two stages with bands rotating on and off the stages so it's a conventional music festival in that regard. Don't know exactly why it's referred to as a guitar pull, but it sounds cool!

Purchasing tickets early gets you a $10 discount on the two day pass. RV camping is still $30.

Anyone interested in attending? If we can get some Airstreams to show up we can arrange a breakfast or dinner potluck.

Here's a link to the ticket sales:

Here's the link to the festival web site. As of today (3/4/2015) the festival web site has not been updated for 2015.

Emmylou Harris Talks About Gram Parson

Many say Poco, Pure Prairie League, and even The Eagles would not have achieved widespread popularity without the influence of Gram Parsons. Nobody will know for certain since Gram died at such a young age.

In the video below, Emmylou Harris speaks briefly about the life of Gram Parsons.

and my band ATLANTA had similar background. We were often compared to the EAGLES and POCO and were signed by Irv Azoff, Eagles Manager to MCA records.

Gram was a truly inspirational musician...who left us all too soon

The festival web site has been updated to reflect the 2015 dates. Be sure to order tickets early for $40 each... otherwise, the price goes up to $50 each.

Camping is $30.

Hope to see you there.

Purchased Our Tickets!

We've committed! We purchased our festival tickets along with camping. Sounds like it's going to be a great time. Keep an eye on the web site to see when the music lineup is announced.

We're planning to arrive in Waycross around noon on Friday September 25th.

Hey L and D

Thank you so much for posting this. I think in the real world we might could be friends. ha ha. LOVE me some Emmylou. I am a Bluegrasser, who are probably up there with Jazz and Blues musicians as the best at jamming with strangers. I have never of " pull ".( but banjo players are known to PUSH the tempo )

Work and lack of funds will most likely prevent me from attending, but please have a good time for me. Man that sounds like fun.

Great heads up there Dave, does sound like fun.
Was trying to figure the guitar pull thing out too, trying to picture guitars and tractors at the same event.
This sounds better for sure.

Cheers Richard

Here are a few excerpts from Wikipedia...

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic describes Parsons as "enormously influential" for both country and rock, "blending the two genres to the point that they became indistinguishable from each other. His influence could still be heard well into the next millennium." In his essay on Parsons for Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Artist" list, Keith Richards notes that Parsons' recorded music output was "pretty minimal." But nevertheless, Richards claims that Parsons "effect on country music is enormous, this is why we're talking about him now."

In February 2008, Gram's protégée, Emmylou Harris, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Despite his influence, however, Parsons has yet to be inducted. Radley Balko has written that "Parsons may be the most influential artist yet to be inducted to either the Rock and Roll or Country Music Hall(s) of Fame. And it's a damned shame."

Hi Alan,

We hope you can make it. Is Shannon coming with you?

Spread the word about the festival - it would be fun to see some other Airstreams in attendance.

I haven't seen a concert lineup yet but Daniel Romano will be at the festival. He may be the headliner on Saturday. Here's a Youtube video.

well it looks like the Duluth Fall Festival show I have done for 3 years now is the same weekend. It is a great festival with a big turn out and we play center stage closing out Saturday...so no guitar pull for me, but some guitar pickin' instead.

I can certainly understand the conflict and playing at Duluth Fall Festival will be good for your band.

We recently purchased several music CDs to better understand what we'll be experiencing at the GPGP and Tribute Festival. We purchased the most recent Daniel Romano disc as well as Gram Parson GP/Grievous Angel disc, and The Flying Burrito Brothers Anthology two disc set. Wow! What a great set of tunes. Daniel Romano is (IMO) a breath of fresh air - maybe classic air - true to country music roots. I've heard so many of GP songs - sung by GP or various incarnations of his bands - and didn't realize it.

Can you tell that I'm really excited about this festival! I hope I'm not setting the bar too high. I can't imagine that we'll be disappointed. Some friends are considering joining us at the festival. I think they'll like it too.
