Live Music in the North State: September 12 – September 18

Full Throttle performs for the Bikers Against Child Abuse event at the Lakeshore Inn & RV Park this Friday, September 14, and Saturday, September 15. All ages admitted.

I'm sad to report that the Mountain Bluegrass Festival, originally scheduled for September 14, 15, and 16 in McCloud, has been canceled due to the fires.

Although summer will soon end, we still have some notable outdoor events going on this week. Wednesday, the Sunset River Jam continues with SugarKane & Co. Grammy-nominated Craig Chaquico and his band will appear Friday at Claire Engle Park in Shasta Lake. Also on Friday, Full Throttle performs for a Bikers Against Child Abuse event at the Lakeshore Inn in Lakehead.  Come Saturday, the 2018 Light it Up with Pride event happens at Turtle Bay, and the North Country Music Festival happens at Anderson River Park. Enjoy, and thank you for supporting our local music scene.
