Spring Hootenanny April 4 in Coloma Benefits Junior Guides

Spring Hootenanny 2014Don’t miss the Spring Hootenanny in Coloma this Friday, April 4! Enjoy folk music, dancing and great eats and drinks. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Coloma Junior Guides Raft Camp Program.

Performers Arann Harris and the Farm Band have a special magic in getting kids to dance and participate. The first set of Live Music will be geared towards the younger folks. And not to worry; Arann Harris may be fun for the kids but he rocks it for the big kids also. He has a strong following in San Francisco and all around the northern part of the Bay Area. He has opened for some big name bands like Greensky Blue Grass and played venues like the Fillmore. The second set of the evening will be aimed at the adults who want to dance in the new season.

Dancing is thirsty work. You can enjoy craft beers on tap, and Maria’s Taco truck will have Mexican food to keep you fueled up for the dancing and hanging out with your community.

The party begins at 4:30 and goes until 10 PM. There will be two sets of music, the first of which will start at 4:30. The second set will be around 6:30 until 10PM. The event is held at the Gold Trail Grange #452 located in the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park.

The Junior Guides Raft Camps are a non-profit 510(c)(3) status pending. They provide whitewater fun and safety learning for kids age 7-13 on the South Fork American River. This Hootenanny will raise money for their scholarship fund, to help kids that could not otherwise attend the camps.
