Live music is a big part of camp. We bring in incredible acts to play in the woods and give you a one-of-a-kind treat. You could go to the Independant or the Fillmore, or you can hear them at your own private show under the trees.
Musicians lead workshops, teach their art, and play each night.
Rainbow Girls has emerged as a much-loved live act both abroad and on their California home turf. They spent their first 5 years touring and busking around Europe and the US as a rock n' roll band, and in 2017 embarked on a stripped down House Concert Tour Across America. The recently released album "American Dream," highlights their rich harmonies, ageless songwriting, and soulful, bluesy sound at its rawest form. They have been described as "a gang of sweet angels, punching you in the heart."
Renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations, John Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own. Fondly dubbed “the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg,” John Cragie is fresh off his tour with legendary Jack Johnson. His fifth full-length album, No Rain, No Rose boasted two collaborations with Gregory Alan Isakov, namely “Highway Blood” and “I Am California.”
When Craigie plays, it’s one of those special shows that can make you laugh and cry in the same song. It’s a musical journey that can’t be denied.
Josiah is best known for being a founding member of The Head and the Heart. He took a break from that work a few years ago to learn how to live more wholly integrated and to work with and through problems with addictions. His expanding solo creations are transcendent, healing folk songs. Deep and soulful ballads that paint the imagination with rich and emotional landscapes of love, loss and transformation. Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-and-voice-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity and beauty, with the powerful joy of singing together.
AVIVA LE FEY
Aviva sings heart songs – some for love lost, and others for humanity forgotten – with a tone and cadence that somehow conjures both the vintage pop of the Fifties and the dark, dreamy sounds you might hear coming from that haunted backwoods bar in 1990s Twin Peaks, Washington. She offers a frequency of hopefulness, a frequency to cry to, a frequency that begs you to dig a bit deeper. Her songs are honest and endearing, bold and restless, easy to listen to and sometimes hard to hear. Aviva’s music invites you to look into the dark cracks of everything – it can be intimidating, but we all know that’s how the light gets in.
The Feelings Parade
The Feelings Parade is the alchemy that happens when songwriters Scott Ferreter and Morgan Bolender come together to bare their souls through song and story. Their live shows--like their songs--are known for being simultaneously gritty and compassionate, and their sound exists somewhere between the nostalgic, harmony-rich acoustic singer-songwriter styles of the 60’s and a harder-hitting, electric barrage of texture and groove.
Oklahoma grown singing-songwriting powerhouse, Chelsea Coleman, creates sanctuaries out of songs, wherein her audience is moved, humbled, and exalted. A courageous and vulnerable storyteller, she invites you to endure open heart surgery, skillfully mending your heartache with strands of golden thread. Each listener leaves more integrally woven in to the tapestry of humanity.

Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner's profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Whiskerman's passionate live shows seamlessly cascade through realms of classic rock, bluesy devotion, psychedelic melancholy, and twangy celebration. Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter.
"When they're revved up, Whiskerman sounds like a gospel and soul band that can make you feel like raising your hands in the air in praise of its talent. In their quieter songs, there's a storytelling vibe with intricate melodies." --SF Chronicle
