RiverTunes, formerly known as American River Music Camp, is a small community-based volunteer assisted Camp, held at American River Resort, whose purpose is to validate, encourage and promote the creative music abilities of all people with informally learned American Roots Music.
We are three and a half days of acoustic music instruction, performance opportunities, evening activities, jamming, dance and more in a breathtaking outdoor setting in the heart of California’s beautiful gold country. It’s an opportunity to study with a variety of string, voice, percussion and keyboard-based instruments in a variety of genre. Traditional and Contemporary Folk and Americana, Blues, Pop, Hawaiian, Tin Pan Alley, Bluegrass and Swing, are just some of the styles delved into. Improvisation, Rhythm, Songwriting, Theory, Performance Craft and Jamming are a few of the popular concept topics.
