with Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum, Thompsonia (Suzy, Eric and Allegra Thompson), and Lark
The second annual River of Song benefit concert brings together celebrated folk, bluegrass, old time, and Americana musicians from the Bay Area and beyond to celebrate California’s life-giving waters. This year’s lineup features Laurie Lewis & Tom Rozum, Blame Sally, Thompsonia, and Jenner Fox. Proceeds benefit Friends of the River and the Foothill Conservancy.
For this trip we’ve teamed up with Northwest Rafting Company to feature Chef Jaret Foster and Joe Rodriguez of Portland’s Tournant. These two talented chefs will be creating communal feasts using live-fire techniques in a wilderness setting. The featured musicians will be solo artists Jenner Fox and Austin Quattlebaum.
Enjoy four days of rafting the wild section of the Rogue River. Choose to paddle your own inflatable kayak, be part of a paddle boat team, or relax on a raft as a guide rows you down the river. Floating musical serenades happen often through canyons and on calm stretches. Lunches are prepared riverside by guides as we explore side creeks, waterfalls, jumping rock and scenic hikes. Once in camp, take the time to relax with a cold drink, hike the river trail, read that book you’ve been putting off, or chat with your new friends. Come evening, we gather for the Serenade happy hour complete with appetizers, beverages, and live music. This is followed by a communal feast prepared over live-fire by Jaret and Joe. Finally, dessert is paired with more music played by firelight. Fall asleep beneath the stars, or cozied up in a tent and wake up excited to do it all over again.
