RIDE THE SHUTTLE

Welcome Back to the Summer Arts & Musical Festival! If you’re a resident of Humboldt County, you know all about this 42-yearold festival that celebrates the joy of arts, music, and summertime! If you’re new to the area, let us share with you how special this annual event is… A highly anticipated showcase of creative artistic talent set in the majestic redwoods on the banks of the Eel River, the Summer Arts & Music Festival kicks off the summer season for Humboldt County with two days of handcrafted arts and crafts, food, fun, and music and performance art. This event has been voted “Best Music Festival in Humboldt County” for several years running, and it’s not hard to see why. The mainstay fundraiser for the non-profit Mateel Community Center, it takes on added significance this year as the Mateel faces an uncertain financial future. We are grateful to be able to bring this community tradition back this year and are confident the community and visitors will find something to love. We have numerous talented musicians taking the stage, including two headliners: On Saturday evening we are proud to host the always inspiring and multi-talented Reggae singer Nkulee Dube all the way from South Africa, and on Sunday evening we welcome none other than Orgone, showcasing their high-powered, female-fronted funk. We’ve also made it a priority to bring more local musicians back into the lineup with groups like Jammies By 9, the Latin Peppers, Way Out West, Ari & Ruby Guillette, Delaney Rose, and many others. Take a look at the lineups in this guide and make sure you don’t miss seeing your favorites along with some new talent. Our Solar Stage has been transformed into the Lunar Stage. With a new fresh look and Basscraft sound system, this stage will feature all DJ music with genres ranging from Reggae to House to Bass to Trap, Breaks and Techno, and many more! You can find the belly dancers sharing their temple with the Lawn Stage, the Andean musicians will be back pleasing listeners, and there will be plenty of jamming in the Hearth Tent. Drop in, check it out, and participate! Take a wander through the Kids Zone and see all the fun the young people are having; there’s a myriad of activities happening all day long as well as some dazzling performances on the Youth Stage! We truly hope that this time-honored tradition can carry on year after year, and that we can continue to create a space on the first weekend of June for artisans to show their wares and for musicians to jam on their instruments. As you walk the fairway taking it all in, and the sounds of merriment drift through the air, twining with the smells of foods both familiar and exotic, let the the breeze lift your spirits and your sense of community...and remember that this special event is brought to you by the Mateel Community Center. Stop by our Info Booth--located near the main fair entrance--to buy or renew a membership or make a donation; it’s no secret that we are struggling and we could use any bit of help, big or small. With your goodwill and support, we hope to be able to continue to operate and provide services and gathering spaces for the community. Mateel Forever,

Head liners, SATURDAY, JUNE 2 TREES STAGE

7:00 ~ Rose’s Pawn Shop IIt may come as a surprise to hear the strains of Appalachian and Americana music channeled through five guys from Los Angeles, but heartache, loss and regret have always been the cornerstones of great music, and this city has more than its share. Singer/songwriter Paul Givant grew up on the same disparate array of popular musical styles as any other late 20th century kid. In that mishmash of Rock, Punk, Country, Pop, and Rap, it was American Folk and Bluegrass that rooted deepest in Paul, transforming him and his songs. They combine, in their collective musical melting pot, the old-style American sounds of Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, and Hank Williams with a higher energy approach more reminiscent of modern AltRock, all with a deeply melodic songwriting sensibility. The final ingredient was added one fateful day when Paul’s scorned ex-girlfriend/former band-mate, Rose, stole the band’s gear and instruments and brought it down to the local pawn shop. Priceless! The match was lit … and Rose’s Pawn Shop was born! (Of course, not until after they got their gear out of hock!) With an arsenal of guitars, banjo, thumping upright bass, fiddle and drums, delivering neo-classical-sounding melodies and lyrics, their sound is a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom’s cookin’. It’s sincere, straight-forward and sexy as hell, effortlessly combining such disparate musical styles as rock, country, bluegrass, and punk to create an incomprehensibly smooth and accessible sound for true believers and skeptics alike.

8:40 ~ Nkulee Dube No female artist has managed to fuse ethno-soul, jazz with ragga in one

song as this 32-year old singer- songwriter, as Nkulee Dube has done in such a short space of time since entering this challenging and yet exciting industry. Born to the family a music legend, Nkulee Dube has big shoes to fill to preserve and sustain the name of her late father, Lucky Dube. Nkulee, whose music can be classified as ‘ethno-ragga’ fused with soul and jazz, is no stranger to the performance circuit and the music industry; she was a backing singer and dancer for the late Lebo Mathosa and later Ntando Bangani. Nkulee glides and slides with ease in between her songs as she traverses between raga and ethnosoul as if she was born on stage. As a guest artist and backing vocalist, Nkulee has been part of her late father’s performing band and Nkulee has performed at major festivals in Australia, Holland, Papua New Guinea, French Guyana, Suriname, the South Pacific, Australasia, Africa, the USA, and across all of Europe.

7:00 ~ Soul Majestic Conceived by four friends on the sandy shores of California, Soul Majestic channels their sunny beach days and bonfire nights into their unique brand of reggae music. Their music blends their deep commitment to roots reggae with their love of rock, hip-hop, pop and folk music. This is reggae, yet it’s original--a new twist on familiar sounds--with conscious, heartfelt messages, and a high-performance band that will have you waiting for what comes next. Their signature vocal sound features male and female singers trading melodies and soaring harmonies, laced with edgy, crowd hyping dancehall verses and memorable hooks. Epic lead guitar solos wail over a wide range of tight danceable beats, rock flourishes, and heavy-dub interludes that will captivate and move you to dance. With a resumé that includes recording with some of the greatest legends in the business like Sly and Robbie, sharing festival stages with the likes of Rebelution, Matisyahu, Sean Paul, and Damian Marley, and extensive touring of North America both headlining and as a support act for Anthony B, Soul Majestic has managed to amass a worldwide fan base. Through it all they have maintained a strong unity and drive to continue to do what they love most: uplifting people through music. With tons of relevant new music on the horizon and touring in the works for spring and summer, Soul Majestic is definitely a band to keep on your radar!

8:40 ~ Orgõne

Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since. “We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big ‘ol push... a love shove, if you will. And we’re well versed in those.” Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octets soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone’s latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed “stank face inducing glory” by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the 45 release in April of “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” featuring Cyril Neville, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one by one into the world throughout 2017. 2018 Summer Arts & Music Festival
