Music flows at the American River Music Festival

The sixth annual American River Music Festival, Sept. 14, 15 and 16, will present more than 25 live music performances by nationally renowned musicians in 10 locations throughout the friendly river community of Coloma.

Performers include Roy Rogers and the Delta Rhythm Kings, Dangermuffin, Poor Man’s Whiskey, Tony Furtado, Tom Russell, the Wheeler Brothers, Birds of Chicago, Rita Hosking and Cousin Jack, Joe Craven Trio, Ray Bonneville with Nina Gerber and many more.

The festival offers something for everyone with the riverfront main-stage, riverfront camping, a whitewater river trip, a guided riverfront hike, great kid’s activities, “live” art, an art market, jams, join-in-shops, dancing, excellent food and beverages and an incredible showcase night.

The Sacramento Bee recently named the festival as a “Best of” choice in their Living Here article “Looking toward a year of fun.”

KVMR Community Radio 89.5 will again broadcast the main stage music, live, to its listening audience.

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

The American River Music Festival is a “fest best” value with the three-day camping/all music ticket for just $99 for adults and $49 for youth. Main stage single-day tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for youth. Early Bird prices apply through July 15, so don’t be a late bird.

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.”

Organizers thank the community for supporting live music.
