      A Full Day of Runs, Rides, Walks, Workshops, Food, Fun and Music on the Greensprings.

      Imagine a great day in the mountains. You are on a wildflower walk, while a few miles away, your friends are mountain biking on an awesome mountain track, or running on a spectacular trail, or partaking in a sailing or kayaking demonstration on a nearby lake. Revel to the sounds of 15 local bands on 3 outdoor stages and feasting on a variety of delectable food.

      Rogue Suspects - The right ingredients for good jazz used to include smoke-filled rooms, sultry torch singers and somewhat dapper piano players.

      Siskiyou Summit - Siskiyou Summit brings together some of the hottest bluegrass musicians in the northwest to form one of the most versatile and entertaining power-house bands in the region--10 years together, 2 albums, countless stage performances and still pickin!

      Deux Cote

      Eight Dollar Mountain - Rising from the Cascade-Siskiyou Mountain range of Southern Oregon comes Eight Dollar Mountain, an exciting, high-energy bluegrass quintet.

      Jef Fretwell & The Detractors - The Georgia native boasts a sound that draws from traditional folk and American roots music. Its not quite bluegrass or blues or standard country. They like to call it West Coast Country.

      Jive Coulis - Jive Coulis was brought to life in the land of Colorado. The band has just completed their 2nd album, due to be released in late June 2012.

      LEFT - Billboard Magazine writes about Bret's songs: "There's a Bowie-esque aura to the vocals here, with enough twists and turns in direction between pace and melody to keep listeners attentive. This has a real throwback appeal, which could work its magic with modern and mainstream rock listeners who depend on the occasional dose of history with their current diet."

      Phoenix Sigalove

      Robbie DaCosta - Robbie Dacosta is the consummate entertainer, with a repertoire that spans generations and the styles of many artists. This 36-year-old singer has a library of music in his head and a powerful amount of charisma on the microphone.

      Sage Meadows & High Country - Sage Meadows musicianship and passion are evident as she sings songs about nature, times past and the human condition.

      TCB - Teri Cote Band

      The Waltz

      In addition, many additional singer songwriters and acoustic groups will be performing.

      This first of its kind, day-long event will include a mountain bike ride, trail run, botany walk, outdoor painting class, bird walk for beginners, cruiser bike poker ride, running workshop, kayaking, sailing & bike polo demonstrations and more followed by a full complement of great local music. Experts, including representatives from Rogue Valley Runners, kayak instructors, a botanist, and local artists will be on hand to lead walks and give workshops and demonstrations.
