WHERE: Red Bluff Recreation Area on the Sacramento River. We have the entire place to ourselves! Just a 2-hour drive from Sacramento. (Scroll down for directions.)
Thanks to Google Maps, we are able to give you this Bird’s Eye View of camp, giving you a better idea of what to expect.
Friday Night will be pretty relaxed, we’ll get to know everybody, we’ll eat, we’ll gather, we’ll get our campers, tents and cabins set up, and as the sun goes down, we’ll head to the campfire and start to play music.
Dinner meals will be provided Friday and Sunday night by Dos Tacos Catering. A luscious taco bar on Friday night and a delicious pasta bar on Sunday night. Chili cook off is Saturday night, with all the fixins. A pancake breakfast will be prepared each morning.
IMPORTANT: There will be some gluten-free and vegetarian fare, but if you have special dietary needs, please provide for yourself. We are feeding a lot of people, and will not have the capability of providing specialized menus.
Musical Guests: Tim and Myles Thompson are a father/son duo from Nashville who have to be seen to be believed. They will perform Friday night and be a part of the creativity roundtable Saturday morning, talking about the writing process and giving some insight into their lives as performers. Great songwriters, great players and great singers, you will love these guys because they are even better human beings than they are musicians. www.timandmylesthompson.com
Steve Spurgin is back with us, one of our favorite singer songwriters with new songs, a new book, and tales from life, love and the ever-winding road. He will play on Saturday night and then share his approach to songwriting with us on Sunday morning as part of the writing roundtable. www.spurginmusic.com
New to Woodflock this year is singer/songwriter Michael McNevin, who’s heartfelt, reminiscent songs about the people and places in his life will inspire you to hold dear those things we know are fleeting but so important. He has a great sense of humor when he performs, and will fit in perfectly. He will be available throughout the weekend at our roundtable events, as well as playing his songs around the fire pit. He has video and MP3s at his website to get a taste of what he does. www.michaelmcnevin.com
We’ll have our infamous Chili Cook-off at dinner time on Saturday. Bring your best chili recipe. Winners receive prizes and a three-month supply of Beano™. Last year’s competition was intense, but wounds have healed, the various parties have made up, and restraining orders have been lifted. It’s all good. All the participants chili will be served as dinner that night, with a smorgasbord of condiments, cornbread and such to enhance the meal.
Creativity and Songwriting Workshops by Antsy and guests (Bring your poetry and music for an in-the-round musical show and tell) The judging of the Campsite Decoration Contest (Winner receives something fun and angry scowls from other contestants.) Special guests and Antsy and the Troubs will finish out the night, playing your requests.
Every Day: Spontaneous Picking & Singing Circles which Antsy and members of the band are known to join in on. Bring your instruments! Share your songs with us!
Guided Meditation with Hilary Nicholls: A soulful gathering gets things started peacefully every morning around the fire pit. Hilary’s husband Bruce Wandmayer accompanies the hour with freestyle dobro. It’s a nice way to start the day. You’ll wish Hilary and Bruce could wake you up every morning. Visit Hilary’s website to learn more about her healing and counseling practice: www.hilarynicholls.com
Yoga: Our friends Dave Emery and his wife PJ host morning yoga under the tall evergreens of the campsite, loosening us up and preparing us for the day’s events.
