Photo by Betty Sederquist. American River Music Festival goers hold an impromptu jam at Camp Lotus.
Music festival a celebration of
music and moving water
S
ure the river plays a huge role in the aptly
named American River Music Festival.
There’s a river walk, a rafting trip and enough
swimming to take the edge off the September sun.
But with acts like Greg Brown, The Bills and
Whitewater Ramble in the house, you’ll want to lay
that beach towel on the lawn for a spell and sit and
listen to some music at Henningsen-Lotus Park.
Chances are you won’t be sitting long though, as
barefoot dancing has become quite popular at the
annual event.
“Saturday is more of a rock/funk/jam show,” said
Matt Semonsen, executive director of American
River Music. “Sunday is more of a folk/Americana/
country show. There is a very different feel to each
show.”
American River Music is a nonprofit based in
Lotus, whose mission is to teach, inspire and enjoy
music. They do workshops and other forms of music
involvement throughout the year, but the festival is
by far their biggest thing. In addition to the 23 acts
that will perform over a three day period, there will
be open jam sessions, a guided river walk, children’s
activities, live artwork, an art market, food and drink
vendors, and an early morning rafting trip down the
American River.
Camping is also a big part of the festival. There
are three locations to pitch a tent, American River
Resort, Camp Lotus and Earth Trek, the latter of
which comes with a meal plan.
“If you buy an Earth Trek ticket, that campground
serves dinner from 6:30-8 p.m. each night and
breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, all included
in the ticket price,” Semonsen said. “Plus, you
camp right on the river and can take a shuttle to
every venue. And you don’t have to check out until
Monday morning.”
As is typical with the festival, all 10 of the main
ariverruns throughit
Foothills Entertainer.indd 6 8/20/14 1:21 PM
stage performers are here for the frst time. What’s new
are two all-female bands. On Saturday it’s Laura Love
and Big Bad Gina and on Sunday it’s Baskery, three
Swedish sisters who live in Nashville.
“We love new presentations,” Semonsen said. “It’s
challenging because a lot of people would like to
see some performers come back. And it wasn’t like I
don’t want past performers — I love tons of the past
performers — it’s just that there’s so much interesting
music to present.”
The main stage music takes place from 11 a.m. to 6
p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Afterward, a shuttle runs
between six other locations where live music can be
enjoyed.
A guided river walk begins at 2 p.m. on Friday, and
for an extra cost, you can take a whitewater raft trip
down the South Fork’s “Upper” Chili Bar at 8 a.m.
Saturday. Or if you can’t commit, just come up for the
day to hear some music.
“It’s a great way to totally dig the scene,” Semonsen
said.

This live steam railroad modeling group will have their garden scale modular railroad layout outside
between the mainline railroad tracks and the Colfax Caboose. Photos courtesy: Placer Sierra Railroad
Hitorical Society
The Union Pacific’s rotary snowplow grinds up the snow and
spits it out the side. It is utilized during severe winters on the
7,000-foot Donner Pass.
Colfax Railroad Days
celebrates locomotives
past, present and future
B
ack in the ’80s, the city of Colfax used to
celebrate Founder’s Day every year. Being
that the town was developed by the railroad
industry for the railroad industry, it only made sense
to change the focus and thus, “Railroad Days” was
born.
“The town was really organized by the Central
Pacific Railroad Company for their purposes,”
said Jim Wood, past president of the Placer Sierra
Railroad Historical Society (PSRHS). “Colfax is really
half a town. One half is the main street, the other the
railroad. It’s suited for the railroad but not necessarily
modern society. Then, when the railroad leaves town,
it struggles to maintain economic vitality.”
But railroads are extremely vital in the eyes of
Wood and the other train buffs at PSRHS. In fact,
Railroad Days is their forum to promote what they
feel is the bright future of the railroad and its role in
benefitting modern society and the environment.
“By all accounts it is arguably the most fuel
efficient form of long distance freight and passenger
transport,” Wood said. “I think that as we become
more concerned about the environment, emissions,
the global climate and mass transit, the railroad holds
great promise.”
He notes that while people are in their cars sitting
in freeway traffic, the trains just roll on by. And they
help improve communities.
“You take people out of their cars, which isolates
them,” he said. “You put them on the commuter rail,
which is enjoying a surge in popularity, and they can
relax, get their work done, socialize, as they once did
in an earlier era.”
The trains on display will come in all shapes and
sizes, from narrow gauge models to Union Pacific’s
mighty rotary snowplow.
“Keeping a rail line open and running over the
Sierra is a big challenge, especially in winter,” Wood
said. “Over the 7,000-foot Donner Pass, it’s the most
challenging snow in the U.S. As soon as it hits ground
it turns to what they call ‘Sierra cement.’ It has so
much water content it can close down the railroad
in a short time. In the most severe winters they bring
out the rotary snowplow, it grinds up the snow and
spits it out the side.”
And then there’s the ever-controversial “bullet
train.” A representative from the California High-
Speed Rail Authority will be on hand to provide facts,
dispel myths and answer questions about the project.
“California could be first state in the U.S. to have
a truly world class high speed rail,” Wood said.
“Few people realize that the airlines that fly from
San Francisco to Los Angeles are actually rooting for
construction of the rail. They are mandated to have
a certain number of short distance flights which are
not money makers. They would prefer more gates
available that make them money and keep them
viable.”
Also present will be Operation Lifesaver, a national
organization that educates people of all ages about
being aware around railroad tracks. In a nutshell, be
cognizant; trains are big and they cannot stop.
“It’s amazing that people don’t have a sense of
self preservation when around railroad tracks,” Wood
said.
Next years will mark the 150th anniversary of the
railroad arriving in Placer County. This year, you can
get a head start on the celebration and learn more
about the history of the railroad and its importance to
a developing California. You’ll also see train-themed
photos and paintings by local artists, an antique
car and truck show and an antique gas engine and
tractor show. And it’s all free.
“Colfax is a throwback to the railroad era,” Wood
said. “The town came out of the 1850s and the
buildings are pretty much the same as they were back
then. They never changed the railroad atmosphere.”

Soprano Meagan Rao to sing
By Paul Cambra | Foothills Entertainer
I
n what has become an annual kickoff
to the season, the Auburn Sympho-
ny will play a free concert at the
Auburn School Park Preserve on Sat-
urday, Sept. 6. In addition to classical
pieces by Wagner and Handel, the
program will feature music more com-
monly connected to the big screen.
“In the park, we try to do things
that are popular in nature, like John
Williams’ ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark
March’ and a medley of Start Trek mu-
sic through the years,” said maestro
Peter Jaffe. “It’s got music from the
original television show to the later
incarnations. It’s a wonderful event
and it’s free.”
Jaffe said the outdoor setting lends
itself to pieces that include most of
the orchestra most of the time.
“Playing outdoors we like to keep
everybody busy,” he said. “People will
get a great taste of what an orchestra
can do.”
Soprano Meagan Rao, winner of the
2103 Young Artists Competition, will
sing twice, Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino
Caro” from Gianni Schicchi and Han-
del’s “Tornami a Vagheggiar” from
Alcina.
“We are really happy to bring back
Meagan,” Jaffe said. “She will sing
two songs with us that will show her
off to great advantage. She is an enor-
mously talented woman going into
her second year of school at the San
Francisco Conservatory of Music.”
To Jaffe, the concert serves more
than one purpose. Not only does it
give exposure to the Auburn Sym-
phony that may lead to return visits by
some, it’s also a way to give back to a
hugely supportive fan base.
“We owe a certain debt to the com-
munity,” he said. “We feel proud to
be a part of it and we like the idea
that we are able to share this with
them. Going into my third season
here, it’s been such a fantastic expe-
rience. These are very highly accom-
plished musicians that play with a lot
of heart and a lot of soul and a lot of
intelligence and I am honored to be
working with them and carrying on
the legacy.”
Soprano Meagan Rao will sing two
pieces with the Auburn Symphony on
Saturday, Sept. 6. Courtesy photos
Maestro Peter Jaffe conducts the
Auburn Symphony in Auburn School
Park Preserve in 2013. This year’s family-
friendly free concert features music

Nevada City Film Festival returns with 70 short, 10 full-length movies
The four-day celebration of art, music and independent filmmaking includes film screenings, workshops, special performances and a live comedy show.
C
alled the “Sundance of the Sierra,” the
Nevada City Film Festival kicks off on Sept. 4
with a Byrd and a “Creep.”
In the former, directors Jack and Paul Kendall
explore the life and career of Gene Clark, co-
founder of the legendary band, the Byrds. In the
latter, local filmmaker Patrick Brice explores the dark
side of Craigslist in his new film, “Creep,” which
opened to rave reviews at the South by Southwest
Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.
“Patrick is a great example of someone who
started out making short films in college and
submitted them to festivals,” said Jesse Locks, now
in her fifth year as festival director. “Now he has an
amazing film that just got picked up for a trilogy.
He’s a really great example of a local filmmaker
brought up through the ranks. The festival gave
him an outlet to show his films and gain confidence
in his craft. We always try and stay true to what we
started out as, a local film festival.”
In all there will be 70 short films, 10 feature
length films and a student works program featuring
films from Sierra College students. Marc Maron
will headline a pair of comedy shows on Friday,
the same day multimedia performance artist Miwa
Matreyek will showcase her latest project in two
performances.
“I think that film in general embodies and
encompasses many different aspects,” Locks said.
“To have someone like Miwa come is amazing. It’s
one of the most unique and spellbinding ways of
exploring animation and storytelling that I have ever
seen.”
Locks is one of a handful of people on the
program committee that watches roughly 400 films,
most culled through the “Without a Box” website.
But they also spend a great deal of time going to
festivals, reading blogs, working with film schools,
talking to filmmakers and looking at what other
festivals are doing.
“Our festival has a very unique pace that
really sets it apart,” she said. “We are looking
for something that’s kind of fun, pulls at the
heartstrings, creative and unique storytelling …
our own aesthetic for sure comes across in the
programming.
This year the “director” spotlight is on a
producer, Dave Kneebone (Drunk History, Naked
for You), who talks about how he got his break in
the industry. Filmmaker salons offer aspiring writers
and directors an opportunity to be a part of in
depth conversations on cinema. Workshops allow
audiences — be them film lovers or filmmakers — to
get an inside look into the craft and process.
“We have an amazing selection of short films
this year,” Locks said. “It’s really rare to go to a film
festival and have this kind of quality short films.
What makes them so unique is you get to see a
filmmaker’s vision really condensed, it’s got to be
the best of the best otherwise it won’t work. It’s a
fantastic, amazing medium.”
So whether it’s short, long, serious, funny or scary,
chances are it will be thought provoking and, who
knows, you might discover the next indie gem.

Patrick Brice, left, and Mark Duplass are the only two actors in “Creep.”
T
he Nevada City Film Festival’s opening night feature is “Creep,” the
directorial debut of Nevada County native Patrick Brice. It’s billed
as a “darkly humorous found-footage thriller which stars Brice as a
videographer who answers a cryptic Craigslist ad placed by the titular creep,
played by Mark Duplass.”
We spoke with Brice on the telephone and asked him about his career so far.
Creep is billed as your directorial debut, but have you directed shorts?
“I did one called ‘Maurice.’ It was my thesis at Cal Arts in Valencia. It actually
debuted at the Nevada City Film Festival in 2011. It’s about the owner of the
last X-rated movie theater in Paris. It’s on its last legs and this was a chance to
document something that probably won’t exist in the next couple of years. They
also played another short in 2006 called “Love-Love.” It was the first time I had
ever had any of my work shown in front of an audience.”
How did you come about the story for Creep?
“After I graduated from film school I was trying to
figure out what to do next. I became a friend of Mark
Duplass, who was kind of a popular independent film
director. The two of us came up with the idea to make
a small film together. The entire movie is just Mark
and myself, there are only two characters. It could be
classified as a horror film but it’s also very funny. It lies
in that area in between comedy and horror. It’s more
about making you feel uncomfortable and getting
uncomfortable laughter from the audience.”
How was your experience at SXSW?
“It was really overwhelming and kind of nerve wracking. I had no idea how the
film was going to be received. When the feedback rolled in I breathed a huge
sigh of relief. It was bought for distribution by the Weinstein Company and will
have a theatrical release in March 2015. We are shooting a sequel later this year.
It will be in the same vein in both style and attitude, a continuation of the story
that begins in Creep.”
How was it directing the indie comedy “The Overnight”?
“After we made Creep, Mark said he’d be interested in producing something
fivequestionswith patrickbrice
a step up production wise. I wrote the script, and we cast Taylor Schilling and
Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche. Being on the movie
set, directing a movie that I wrote, that was mind blowing. It was an absolutely
wonderful experience, it was amazing. It was fun to be able to make something
where I was just trying to make it as funny as possible all the time. It’s got a
really unique tone to it.”
What do you think of the Nevada City Film Festival?
“The festival has been a huge supporter of me for a long time. It’s my
hometown. I am proud of the fact that they have a diverse, weird film festival up
there.”

Horses also get a chance to let their manes down
and have a little fun. In one class, exhibitors dress
up and ride antique carriages, from the elegant,
top-hatted hearse driver to the more simple
milk wagon. A reminder that these horses were
depended upon at one time for labor, including
logging the Nevada County forests.
Teaching opportunity
Over at Rock-n-Horse Ranch in Grass Valley,
owners Randall Gross and Trish Brown use their five
draft horse to work their land and to teach children
and adults how it’s done.
“We disc it and plow it and pull cultivators,”
Brown said. “We have all of the equipment to plant,
mow and rake. We try to teach the whole concept
between the earth and crops and horses; it’s a
cycle.”
Their main focus is education and youth. A
licensed equine therapist, Brown works with 24 kids
who come out to learn basic horsemanship.
“It helps them learn who they are and gives them
self confidence,” she said. “They learn to read body
language, set up a plan, and determine priorities.
You can learn a lot of life skills working with horses.
Plus, riding is fun.”
One of the goals at Rock-n-Horse Ranch is to
make sure the skills of riding and driving stay alive
for future generations.
“It’s a lost art,” Brown said. “A dying art and once
we’ve lost those skills, who’s going to carry it on?”
They will be bringing four kids and four horses
to the take part in the youth competitions, where
they are judged on outfit appearance, the amount
of control the driver has over their rig and whether
they can follow the instructions given by the judge
(trot, reverse direction, line up).
“The coolest thing is to watch the kids go out and
show,” Brown said. “It’s not about winning ribbons. I
tell them I don’t want them to go for first place, just
go to have a good time and be safe.”
All about teamwork
“It all started with teamsters,” said Eleanor
Roberts, who will serve as a paddock steward and
lead barn tours at the Draft Horse Classic. “That’s
why there’s a horse on their logo. That was the
original way they delivered freight. Without the
horse this country wouldn’t have been built the way
it was. They were the foundation.”
She feels it’s important for those carrying on the
B
udweiser commercials brought Clydesdales
into our living rooms. But these powerful
horses have been in our fields and forests for
generations, helping farmers and loggers get the
job done. And while you still might find them put
to use for hard heavy tasks such as plowing and
hauling, most of these horses, as well as Percherons,
Shires and Belgians, can be found in show
competitions around the country.
They are called draft horses, and for an up close
look at some of the finest, get to the Nevada
County Fairgrounds on Sept. 18-21 for one of the
premier draft horse shows in the western United
States.
But don’t get too close.
“If you are standing anywhere near the gate when
the big hitches come out, you can feel the ground
rumble,” said Sandy Woods, CEO of the Nevada
County Fair.
The morning performances are geared toward
the working horses, with farm implements in tow,
obstacle courses and sled pulling, where bags of
feed are piled on in increments in a test of strength
and stamina (think Buck in “Call of the Wild”).
In the evenings you’ll see more of the high-
stepping classy horses, parading around the
grounds pulling wagons, either by themselves, in
a “unicorn” formation (one in front, two behind)
or in sets of three, four and six. World-renowned
equine entertainer and stuntman Tommie Turvey will
entertain between performances.
“Competitors will come from Canada, Idaho,
Oregon, possibly Arizona,” Woods said. “We’ve
had them from as far away as Missouri. This is
recognized as one of the top shows, certainly on the
west coast. Our barns will be filled with up to 300
head of draft horses.”

draft horse tradition to also carry on the teamster
mentality and spirit; a love of God, family and
country, and an incredible amount of integrity.
“When you hear the noise from the tug chains
and you feel the power and pounding of the draft
horses, you feel that in your heart and soul and it’s
there to stay forever,” Roberts said.
And if that’s not enough to take in, there’s a
Harvest Fair going on too. Cowboy entertainment,
horseshoeing and clogging competitions, equine
art and old-time photo shows, foral arrangements,
pies and preserves …
“The entire fairgrounds will be bustling with
activity,” Woods said. “It’s reminiscent of an old
time rural county fair. There is no admission for
the harvest fair, but a charge to participate in the
tastings and to get into the draft horse show.”
On Saturday there’s the Backyard Barbecue and
Chef’s Challenge Rib Cook-Off. On Sunday, Bounty
of the County pairs local chefs with the produce
and meats of Nevada County Grown farmers and
ranchers.
Not too many of which use draft horses in their
daily routine anymore, though they are still seen
on some smaller farms, and are quite popular with
Amish and Mennonite farmers.
“People in their 80s and 90s come and it brings
them back to how things were,” Roberts said. “We
are not so far away from people that went to school
in a wagon.”
The last time this area saw something like that?
Well, it would have to be when gas hit $5 a gallon.
“We hitched up our horse and drove it to
Safeway to do our grocery shopping,” Brown said.
“Parked it right there in the parking lot. It was our
protest.”

Festival satisfies those
who crave Celtic culture

T
hey come bearing bagpipes and bodhráns
and banjos. Fiddles and flutes and flasks full
of Finian’s. They come from Ireland, Scotland,
Nova Scotia and … Bakersfield?
That’s right, the band 1916 hails from that hotbed
of twangy steel guitars, but their punk-infused
sound owes more to the Pogues than to Buck
Owens.
They are just one of nine bands who will headline
the 18th Annual KVMR Celtic Festival on Sept. 26-28
at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley.
“It’s a beautiful setting, with big pine trees and
an open meadow,” said Peter Wilson, one of the
festival organizers. “We set up the main stage in
the meadow; it can accommodate 3,000 people
comfortably.”
The event is put on by KVMR radio as a fundraiser
for the station. In addition to the music — on eight
stages scattered throughout the grounds — there’s
a lot more entertainment to be found. There’s sword
fighting, the Queen and her court, feats of strength.
“It’s kind of a combination music festival and
Renaissance fair,” Wilson said. “Guilds come and
set up little encampments and dress up and try to
recreate points and places in time as authentically
as possible.”
Friday night’s Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee)
features live music with “Reel of Seven” and
contra dancing with a Celtic flair. A free youth arts
The band 1916, top, will perform three times
at the KVMR Music Festival. At right, people

sion from 2013’s festival.

program includes a songwriting workshop for ages 10-18, with participants
getting a discount and a chance to be part of the Sunday morning youth arts
performance.
And then there’s the daily parade. Led by a bagpiper band and followed by
guilds and regional performers, it’s a loosely organized procession whose tail
end is made up of anyone who wants to join in.
And speaking of tails, an animal exhibit has wolfhounds, Moreland ponies
and birds of prey.
As for food, well it’s not all pasties and haggis. You’ll fnd the typical festival
fare, from pizza to gyros, and “O’Dea’s Pub” will serve everything from Irish
coffee to Sierra Nevada Brewery’s “Knightro,” a Guinness-style stout.
There will also be impromptu jams, which sometimes lead to spontaneous
jigs, so pack a penny whistle if you’ve got one and wear your comfortable
shoes.
Above, the free youth arts program gets kids involved in the activities at the
KVMR Celtic Festival. Left, dancers cut loose at the Friday night Ceilidh.
