      Title: ELKTON, OR - Umpqua River Appreciation Day
       
      Date: Saturday July 20, 2013
      Time: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm (GMT-08.00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
      Location: Elkton Community Education Center (ECEC), 15850 Hwy 38 W., Elkton, OR 97436
      Notes: River Appreciation Day was started 27 years ago by citizens concerned about the Umpqua Rivers health. Sponsored by Umpqua Watersheds, the event is always free s invited to attend. Displays, children activities, food, group river float, musicians, disc golf. The community-based event celebrates & enjoys the river on which we all depend. Sponsored by Umpqua Watersheds and others, the event is always free and everyone is invited to attend.

      Featured bands are Umpqua Valley Bluegrass Band (UVBB), The Slow Ponies and A Strange Attractor.


      From 2 - 3:30 pm, Umpqua Valley Bluegrass Band performs upbeat and rustic traditional music with banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, upright bass & vocals. The hardworking local band includes Liz Crain, Gene Hodson, Francis Stephenson & Joe Ross. They formed several years ago when they saw a classified ad stating Bluegrass Band Needed for Pig Roast BBQ. They now play bluegrass at many regional fairs, festivals, restaurants, pubs, weddings and other special events.

      Appearing from 4 - 5:30, The Slow Ponies are an all-woman group that plays and sings old-time Cowgirl songs and classic music of The Golden West. Mostly based in Yoncalla, they started singing together about 10 years ago

      A Strange Attractor will close the festival from about 6  8 p.m. with their Jamericana a rock-based gumbo seasoned with Reggae, Funk, Worldbeat and Americana. Together since 2008, Walter McKinney plays bass, guitar, sings and writes. Ken Carloni plays an electric guitar outfitted with a string bending system of his own design, banjo, bass, sings and writes. David Parker plays percussion. Other folks will be picking, singing and jamming throughout the afternoon.

      Throughout its history, River Appreciation Day has moved all over Douglas County to highlight beautiful and different places in our watershed. This year its along the main Umpqua River near the Elkton Community Education Center (and Fort Umpqua). Camping, fishing, water play opportunities, horseshoes, games and displays are also on site.
