Well, shoot. Summer ’17 is just about over as it came and went all too fast as it does every year.
That said, our friends over at The Wild Honey Pie know just how to cap off the summertime with their annual Welcome Campers getaway festival set to go down from September 8th to the 10th (passes still available).
To celebrate their upcoming performance at Welcome Campers, Workman Song is now sharing a beautiful cover of Jonathan Richman’s “That Summer Feeling” along with a video that perfectly encapsulates the song’s lyrics.
Workman Song describes it as, “A little slice of Western Mass life in the summer, before we bid it adieu for the year: Northampton porch life; the wistful glories of the cornfields that line the mighty Connecticut River, where ropes are swung upon, canoes are canoed, and cigars are chomped; Summer in the Pioneer Valley, where true love is found and warmly inebriated memories are lost! In other words, a toe-sucking hippy shit-show flower-power clusterfuck! To the impeccably nostalgic tune of ‘That Summer Feeling’ by the one and only troubadour genius of Boston, Jonathan Richman.”
Watch Workman Song in “That Summer Feeling” below and check out their recently released video for original song, “This One’s For The Kids,” here. More info on Welcome Campers below.
The music and event curators at The Wild Honey Pie are preparing to host their celebrated, 5th annual Welcome Campers experience this upcoming September 8th through the 10th. Hailed as one of the most influential music blogs in the world, The Wild Honey Pie continues to transcended beyond the conventions of the traditional online site with a forward thinking approach to artfully executed video content and unique, intimate and thoughtfully crafted events with Welcome Campers serving as its flagship.
Returning to Camp Lenox in Western Massachusetts, Welcome Campers is a one-of-a-kind experience, eschewing the large, modern music festival model for a weekend of spotlight performances amidst an array of outdoor activities reminiscent of summers past.
Weekend passes include free meals (plus access to food trucks), lodging, musical performances around camp and summer camp activities such as kayaking, arts and crafts, tennis, nature hikes, campfires, volleyball, basketball, kickball and more.
