Only 20 Spaces Available; These Trips will Sell Out Quickly!
River trips are already amazing, multi-sensory experiences: exciting rapids, stunning campsites, tasty meals and fresh air; how could we possibly make them better, you ask?
Add the magic, spontaneity and pure joy of nightly, live, riverside music from professional musicians!
The American River Touring Association (ARTA) and Sisters Folk Festival (SFF) have teamed up to bring you these two amazing “Going Rogue” rafting trips in the summer of 2022. Sisters Folk Festival has been producing world-class music festivals and events since 1995. ARTA is a nonprofit corporation, founded in 1963 that donates its profits to conservation organizations, helping to protect our nation’s wild rivers for future generations to enjoy.
The partnership with ARTA and SFF is a natural fit, and we’re thrilled to bring some of the best folk and Americana musicians along for the ride. It’s a one-of-a-kind, magical, musical, mind-blowing experience on the already incredible Wild and Scenic Rogue River. It’s a confluence made in heaven!

Still a Few Spaces Left in Jenner Fox’s A Song A Week Songwriting Workshop
Sisters resident and musical artist Jenner Fox will offer A Song a Week Songwriting Workshop, a 5-week course taking place in person on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8pm at the Sisters Artworks building. This small group workshop is limited to just ten participants, who will write songs, share and dig deep for inspiration. Writing from prompts, participants will explore individual tastes, dissect favorite songs, share originals and support one another in their musical journeys. All genres of music are welcome, and some level of musical experience is encouraged.
Jenner Fox, who tours the world as a river guide, guitar player and multi-instrumentalist songwriter describes the workshop setting as “a welcoming place to find inspiration and carve out time to write and share and make music.” A student from the last workshop that Jenner facilitated shared, “We learned so many ways to approach songwriting and every single person wrote songs — beginners like me and professional musicians! Life changing and super fun! I highly recommend it!”
The suggested fee for the five-week session is $150 but registrants will be able to select an amount that is based on what they can afford when they register.
