Sound Summit, the intimate annual music festival staged high above San Francisco Bay returns to the slopes of Mount Tam on Saturday, September 9. This year’s soundtrack to the most stirring backdrop around features performances from cosmic folk-rock storytellers Lord Huron; spellbinding Americana songstress Sierra Ferrell; captivating modern-day troubadour Kevin Morby; a special reunion of acclaimed Bay Area music collective Brokedown in Bakersfield (Nicki Bluhm, Tim Bluhm, Dan Lebowitz, Steve Adams, Scott Law, Dave Brogan); and Marin County’s own beloved funkmasters Vinyl. High-spirited KNBR radio personalities Murph & Mac (aka Brian Murphy and Paul McCaffrey) return as the day’s dynamic Masters of Ceremonies along with KPFA’s “Dead to the World” radio host Tim Lynch. Andy Cabic of Vetiver fame will keep the groove going all day long, spinning records between sets.
Sound Summit is as much a community spirit as it is a community event. The San Francisco Chronicle has called the festival “a day of restorative celebration.” Produced as an annual celebration of and fundraiser for Mount Tamalpais State Park by Roots & Branches Conservancy, Sound Summit is staged at the historic Mountain Theater, a 4,000-seat natural stone amphitheater with stunning views of San Francisco, the Bay, and the Pacific beyond. There is no venue like it anywhere in the Bay Area.
