Celebrate the Rain Sprinkles! Harvest Festival - today, 2-11 pm

Sep 17 2011 - 2:00pm - 11:00pm
Harvest Fest


It's raining -- but just a little, now and then (a lot less than East Portland we're told), and it's still warm.  And the Fest will go on!  Embrace our Cascadian climate, and come play with us - and we'll get a little fire going in the sauna, so it can be used as a warming room, brew up some hot chai, serve up some hot food, and dance and sing the rain back home. . . See you here!

The flow of the event will likely be something like this . . . 

2:00  stiltwalkers, games, face painting, nature crafts and cider press
2:45  Puppet Show from the Mother Earth School teachers
3:00 Music from the Cardboard Songsters (fun creative jug band), berry picking, scavenger hunt, etc.
4:30  Music from Stone Crowe (Cascadian activist folk)
5:30  Magic Show, Raffle drawing & brief TLC Farm presentation
6:00   Music from Daniel Sherrill (and EAT awesome wood-fired pizza)
7:00    "Singing Alive" inspired  Song circle  - bring songs to share!
9-10:30  Dance to live music from The Resolectrics  . . .

then go home and sleep real well

The Harvest Fest is a benefit for TLC Farm's education programs, including Mother Earth School, and we ask for an entrance donation of $10-20 sliding scale (kids 12 & under free).  Yummy treats, pizza and drinks will be available for purchase at the event.  Worktrade is available - if interested please conact brenna(at)tryonfarm.org at least 3 days before the event.

Please park at Riverdale High School (9727 SW Terwilliger Blvd. Portland 97219), and catch the continuously running TLC Farm shuttle.

About the music:

The Cardboard Songsters is early and odd American Roots Music and cardboard theater. Also creators of silent films called "cardboard noir" dont forget to check out some of their original music too.  www.myspace.com/cardboardsongsters

Stone Crowe is an acoustic band that interweaves threads of Celtic, folk, and bluegrass music.  Inspirations include the Pogues, Gillian Welch, the Cascadian Mountain Bioregion, and Joy.  Not that there's a band called 'Joy' - we are simply a pro-joy outfit.

Dan Sherrill is a Portland based singer-songwriter drawing on influences from the Cascades to the Appalachians.  He listens to all types of heart music, but most notably Neil Young, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, Fela Kuti, and Sacred Spirit music.  He plays guitar, banjo, ukulele, and sings.  He recently released his self-produced debut album Another Human Birth, which can be found at www.dansherrill.com.  

What is a Singing Alive inspired song circle? Singing Alive is part of a growing global 'song culture' which is knitting itself, and the world, together, thru the harmonics of communion with our common spiritual heritage. In this context, we will be sharing songs that the group can sing together.  By breaking down the divide between singer and audience, and sharing in the creation of the music, we reclaim our voice as singers, and the role of shared song in creating vibrant culture.  Visit http://www.tribesofcreation.com for more information.
