Saturday is Deer Creek Music Festival

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present the first annual Deer Creek Music Festival on Saturday, July 24, 2021.  Gates open at 5:00pm and the entertainment will be from 6:00 – 10:00pm.  Featuring performances by Petty Luv, Kyle Ledson & Friends, Tim High & The Mighty, and Patrick Donahoe with special guest Gabriel Bingham plus food and libations!

Petty Luv – a Tribute to Tom Petty

It all began shortly after Tom Petty’s passing in early October, 2017.

The initial goal was to pay tribute to and celebrate Tom Petty’s life and music by pulling together local A-list musicians to play one gig to the best of our abilities, raise a pint and bid farewell with anyone who showed up.

The experience that cold January night was so amazing, the project had to continue and needed a name, one that shared our love and appreciation for Tom Petty. And so Petty Luv was born!

Kyle Ledson & Friends

Kyle Ledson grew up in the Grass Valley area playing mandolin and guitar, particularly Jamgrass and Psychedelic Folk.

His new album “Left It All Behind” features his original music along with members of Yonder Mountain String Band, ALO, and Hot Buttered Rum.

Kyle Ledson will be joined by his good friends D’jango Ruckrich and Mei Lin Heirendt.

Tim High & The Mighty

Made up of long time veterans of the local music scene, Tim High & The Mighty bring new life to good time rock ‘n roll.

Drawing from a diverse selection of tunes ranging from classics to deep tracks, you’ll hear everything from hard rock to jam, funk to reggae.

This unique combination of styles allows the band to create a synergy that will have your soul grooving and your dancing feet moving.

Patrick Donahoe

Sundog Review is the current conduit for the songs and creations of Patrick Donahoe.

His music is a sonic journey of minor key guitar work with throat singing tones deepening the ambiance, interwoven with lyrics of positive change.

Patrick also plays in a nonstandard frequency of 432hz, producing healing tones in tune with the natural world, including ourselves.

Gabriel Bingham

Born and raised in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, Gabriel Bingham is combining Appalachian traditional music, bluegrass, and 90’s grunge.

His sound is rich with haunted vocal melodies, layering articulate instrumentation including guitar, clawhammer banjo, and mandolin.

You can catch him out in the wild with his current bluegrass band Caltucky.
