unezm, tecora, Progresswe, Repoer Wednesday, June 18, 2014 131:11 AR' AND ENTERTAINMENT High Sierra Music Festival to add nature hike James Wilson Sports Editor High Sierra Music Festival is getting ready to invade the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds -- and Bucks Lake? This Fourth of July weekend, the HSMF organizers are trying to give festivalgoers one more reason to visit Plumas County: the area's natural beauty. As part of an ongoing shift to make the festival more family-friendly, a naturalist-led hike around the Mill Creek Trail will be offered to families attending the festival. On Saturday, July 5, buses will tote nature lovers from the festival to Bucks Lake to hike, swim and generally take a break from the festivities. In addition to the Bucks Lake day trip, a whole series of family-friendly performances, art projects, games, parades and vendors will be set up for kids of all ages. Rockin' Nannies, a group of qualified CPR-certified child care providers, will be on hand at the festival to babysit during the late night shows. A family camp is available as well, which is set back a bit from the main attractions, allowing a quieter and more kid-friendly place to camp. This year's festival, the 24th, promises another unforgettable musical experience with a lineup of some of the music world's greatest talents. Ms. Lauryn Hill, Widespread Panic, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Beats Antique, Trampled by Turtles and Lord Huron will all take to the Grandstand stage. A wide variety of foods not normally found in Plumas County will be set up in the festival. Deep-fried pickles, Thai cuisine, Afro-Caribbean food, a fresh oyster shack and the ever-popular Spiro's Gyros will be selling their organic fare to tickle attendees' taste buds. Last week, HSMF announced its schedule of artist playshops. Highlights of the series include a Jimi Hendrix jam presentation led by Sean Leahy, a workshop that examines the different styles of banjo music with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an experimental saxophone presentation held by Sherik and a solo bass excursion with Charnett Moffett. In addition to the artist workshops, a series of outdoor playshops with an emphasis on exercise will take place including AcroYoga, Zumba, Pilatesl poi spinning and hula=hooping. A series of colorful parades will make their way through the fairgrounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Last year, an estimated 10,000 people attended the festival, nearly tripling the population of Quincy. The festival greatly boosts the local economy each year.
