Music at Firelight 2017

The Pollies

“In an ideal world, discovering a band like The Pollies wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but then again, in an ideal world, every band would be able to seamlessly blend and arrange the root elements of rock and roll while forging into new territory to create songs that sound so natural and effortless that you don’t notice the intrinsic complexity and massive undertaking that each track represents.” – Last.FM

Mermaid Motor Lounge

Depending on the lore, Mermaids are saints and saviors, or they’re muses and murderers. Mermaid Motor Lounge was created by Josh Erwin. The band uses acoustic dexterity while filling out the sound with electric guitar, upright bass, fiddle, harmonies, and percussion. “Fits and Starts” is the band’s debut album, recorded at Standard Electric Studios by Damon Moon. Release date first quarter 2018.

During the next 12 months, we will lead 3,500 people on hiking, paddling, camping and service trips to far-flung natural places, all while celebrating conservation, culture, food, music, diversity and family.

We are in the business of conservation, yes, but to succeed, we must also be in the business of love. Love for the rivers, the barrier islands, the marshes, the plains, the canyons and even the urban parks and the cities that surround them.
