Houston Jones at American River

I had hoped to make it two weeks ago to the first American River Music Festival in Lotus CA near Sacramento, which had all the makings of a strong new entrant into the Northern California roots music festival market. As things turned out, I opted for the Monterey Jazz Festival instead for that weekend.

So I was pleased to get this set of photos from American River courtesy of Kathy Pomianek, who does publicity for the Bay Area acoustic band Houston Jones, who performed at the festival along with The Waybacks, Laurie Lewis and many more. This photo essay gives a flavor for this new festival from a performer's perspective.
