American River Music Fest Update

Posted July 9, 2008 by Malina

Awhile back I mentioned that folks who participate in the American River music and rafting package might get serenaded on the river bank and…….

It’s true!  I just found out that Joe Craven will do a jam session on the river!  A few weekends back I happened to get a double dose of Joe Craven’s music–he played at a local wedding I was lucky enough to attend, and then he played at the American River Trailfest.  So I feel pretty confident in saying that if you like folk music you shouldn’t miss this guy.  I was struck with his stage presence and his vocal virtuosity as well as his music.  Somehow he can evoke the bayou, hot nights in Rio, a good old-fashioned hoe down, and a lazy blues session all in one dance-filled night.  Oh–and after all that he’ll rap and play a jawbone.  No really–a jawbone!  Like I said, don’t miss him.  For more info check out the festival website:
