By From page B3 | July 16, 2014

The eighth annual American River Music Festival, Sept. 12, 13 and 14, will present more than 30 music performances by nationally renowned musicians in nine locations throughout the friendly river community of Coloma.

Performers include: Greg Brown, The Bills, Whitewater Ramble, Tommy Malone (of the Subdudes), Laura Love and Big Bad Gina, The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, Baskery, The Parson Red Heads, Terri Hendrix with Lloyd Maines, The Rebecca Loebe Trio, Patchy Sanders and many more.

The festival offers three days/nights of beautiful riverfront camping with performances, join-in-shops and jams in each campground. When you buy a camping ticket it includes entrance to all festival music, shuttles and the very popular Friday guided river walk.

The awesome Main Stage at Henningsen-Lotus Park , 950 Lotus Road in Lotus, features six performances each day along with fun kid’s activities, “live” artwork, an art market, barefoot dancing, a very cool swimming hole, freshly prepared food, fine beverages and lots of shade.

For tickets, a complete list of performers, the complete schedule and information about this “celebration of music and moving water” go to or call 530-622-6044.

The festival is the project of American River Music Inc., a charitable organization, based in Lotus, with a mission, “To Teach, Inspire and Enjoy Music.”
