“We Rainbow Girls are normally at festivals because we are scheduled to play them,” said multi-instrumentalist Caitlin Gowdey, 27, “but High Sierra is the only festival I will always go to even if I have to pay for my ticket.”

High Sierra Artist “Playshops” are always a memorable part of the overall HSMF experience and have provided some incredible highlights through the years. Playshops provide opportunities for fans to see musicians in novel and often one-of-a-kind musical settings.
