American River Music Festival 2013

Posted July 16, 2013 by Malina

 press3Oh Miley Cyrus–yes, it’s your party and you can do what you want to, but I just can’t stop wanting to hear some real old-fashioned music.  You know, with people who can sing (sans Auto Tune) and people who can play instruments, maybe people who are not lip-synching but actually performing live, right there in front of God and everyone.  I’m not a hater, I’m just sayin…..

So call me a relic, but the annual American River Music Festival is sounding pretty appealing.  Three days of 100% real live folk, bluegrass, roots and singer-songwriters……camping in the lovely Coloma-Lotus Valley……and a riverside concert during lunch on a South Fork American rafting trip with yours truly!  Not yours truly as in moi, but as in AO rafting.  The festival kicks off Friday, September 13th with the festival rafting and hiking trip, each with a private concert (Evie Ladin Band and Willie Ames), geneerinen cialis and seanhayes-guitar-lgthen continues back at camp with evening performances.  Music on the main stage at Henningson-Lotus Park begins Sat the 14th and ends on Sunday the 15th.

Highlighted performers this year include Sean Hayes, the David Grisman Experience, and Paul Thorn.  See the full line-up and learn more about camping options and ticket prices at the 2013 American River Music Festival website.  Tickets on sale now so  jump on it and see if Miley is free and wants to join you–maybe she’ll jump in one one of the jam sessions and prove this snarky blog writer wrong about the auto-tune thing…. 🙂
