Going Rogue Trips 2022

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!

ARTA and Sisters Folk Festival have teamed up to bring you the “Going Rogue” summer music series. Sisters Folk Festival (Sisters, Oregon) has been producing world-class music festivals and events since 1995. ARTA (The American River Touring Association) is non-profit 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.

These are river trips like no others — It’s a confluence made in heaven!

Tim O’Brien is a legend in the folk and bluegrass world. The Grammy-winning singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist first came on the bluegrass scene with Colorado’s Hot Rize starting in 1978. His songs have since been covered by New Grass Revival, Kathy Mattea and Garth Brooks and recorded with the likes of Steve Earle, Mark Knopfler and Sturgill Simpson. The International Bluegrass Music Association has twice awarded him with Song of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year prizes.

Tim O’Brien performs in a duet setting with his partner Jan Fabricius on harmony vocals. Featuring his solid guitar, fiddle, and mandolin, the shows cover a range of original compositions and traditional arrangements mixed with stories and Tim’s self-deprecating humor.
