For Right-Brained People

Bluegrass Music on the Tuolumne River with Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum

The river will capture your attention; the music will capture your heart.

It’s already a great trip; world-class whitewater, enchanting sidestreams, stunning campsites, and relaxing solitude, so how can we make it better?

Add the magic of Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum‘s bluegrass melodies.

Grammy-award winning Laurie Lewis and mandolinist extraordinaire Tom Rozum are self proclaimed “river rats” and their music fits perfectly with a Tuolumne trip. The acoustic sounds enhance the peaceful atmosphere of an evening along the river and the music itself seems invigorated by the natural outdoor setting. It is truly amazing to simultaneously enjoy the babble of the river, the twinkle of the stars, the whisper of the breeze and the music of these two fine performers. And if that’s not enough, we’ll all join together on the second night for a rollicking communal jam session/poetry recital and amatuer talent show!

This trip has a very loyal following, sign up early.

Meet Laurie and Tom

Stars of the river show

Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum have taken so many river trips that they are now common law “river people“. Comfortable on the water, relaxed around camp, and at home under the stars, their familiarity with river life makes their campsite music more real and their riverside performances less predictable. Gotta request? Wanna play along? Needa classic? Kinda fun. They have been making music together for over three decades. In the studio. On the road. About town. In concert halls. Under tents. Indoors. Outdoors. They’ve made dozens of albums, performed around the world, won a Grammy, been nominated for a few more, and shared their love of authentic folk and bluegrass music with thousands of people. On the river, they are in their natural second-home, enabling them to give us an intimate and inclusive wilderness musical adventure.

“What a joy!”
