I wrote two recent blogs on summer music events in Mendocino County. The Mendocino Music Festival,
classical music and jazz on the coast in Mendocino and Fort Bragg and Sunday's in the Park, folk, county, rock, and blues in the heart of our county, Ukiah.
A third festival starts tomorrow, June 17 - 19! The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival between Ukiah and the coast in Booneville. Boonville sits in picture perfect Anderson Valley wine country. The Festival features 3 days of the best in roots reggae and world music taking place on two stages, with a late-night “Jamaican style” dancehall.
And its not just music, not that there is anything such thing as "just" music! Along with the more than 30 bands, the 18th annual Summer Solstice and World Peace Celebration also includes an extensive schedule of children’s activities, arts and crafts, an international food court, family camping and lots of vendors. On-site camping sells out every year as it has already this year.
As in years past, you can hear local and international musicians. This year you can hear Thomas Mapfumo, "The Lion of Zimbabwe" immensely popular in his county for the political influence he wields in his criticism of President Robert Mugabe. His voice is instantly recognizable to Zimbabweans and is memorable to the rest of us. Also this year from Jamaica, Toots and the Maytals!
With so much music and beauty in our quiet section of northern California, why not call me and we can find just the right in town or country property for you. Now is a great time buy a home, vacation property, or property to develop for the future. I can send you listings targeting your interests.
Come and enjoy the music!
