At 89 years old, Willie Nelson could easily sit back on his past achievements and coast on reputation alone; instead, the Texas songwriter has taken to bringing his Outlaw Music Festival on tour each summer since 2016, bringing it all the way up to Saratoga Springs for an incredible two-day celebration of classic country.

Even if this is your first Outlaw show, its appeal cannot be denied. These concerts feature legendary artists like Willie Nelson & Family and Bob Dylan; Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and John Mellencamp; as well as lesser-known acts like Billy Strings and Brittney Spencer.

The crowd was as diverse as Outlaw’s lineup: there were families with young children, groups of friends and even some longtime fans who had attended shows for decades – yet all shared one common thread: music lovers wanting a good time!

Nelson will be joined on his tour by family members as well as an impressive lineup that includes The Avett Brothers, Marcus King, Kathleen Edwards, Flatland Cavalry and Particle Kid – along with newcomers The Head and the Heart and Natalie Maines who have recently come into greater prominence on bill.

This year’s Outlaw Music Festival differed significantly from past festivals; the tour ended early, requiring shorter runs that ended earlier than normal in September – meaning Saratoga had an early start time and early show dates than usual; nonetheless it still provided music fans an incredible night of live music performances and festivities.

On Sunday evening at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, the Outlaw Music Festival reached its full potential with two stages full of musical legends performing across both. Myron Elkins is making waves as one of his acclaimed bluegrass wunderkind and grandson of renowned gospel performer (Graham Elkins) is making his mark through this tour; and has become an audience favorite at festivals where his aim is to reach new ears that might have missed hearing him otherwise.

Myron provided both his original music and a selection of covers during his one-hour set, drawing heavily upon traditional influences while creating something truly original with his distinctive vocals and style. He made sure his audience felt welcomed during this fantastic experience! His performance sounded fantastic throughout its duration – his sound quality was outstanding while remaining very engaging with all present.

Whoever was fortunate enough to make it out enjoyed one of the finest Outlaw shows in recent memory. Make sure not to miss it again at Darien Lake when the tour stops there on September 17. Click here for ticket information.
