Moccasin Creek Festival, The Stage at Lake Sara, Effingham, IL

The Burney Sisters Trio will play Moccasin Creek on Friday June 22 and Saturday June 23rd.

Moccasin Creek Festival is an annual 4-day music festival which takes place at beautiful Lake Sara just west of Effingham, Illinois. The lake was created in the 1950's from five creeks that run through the basin. One of those creeks was named Moccasin Creek by a surveyor named Griffin Tipsword in the 1850's, because of moccasin tracks he found on the banks.

The founder of Moccasin Creek Festival is Bill (Poss) Passalacqua, an Effingham native who has built his life around writing, performing and promoting music. The Passalacqua family has a rich musical history, and Bill has three brothers, all of whom are musicians. Each of them have followed in father Larry's musical footsteps. Folk, bluegrass, alt country, roots rock, and blues - "Americana" music. This is what MCF is all about - in the shade of a hickory grove, next to a lake, at the onset of summer.
