Playlist: The Musicians Of Mt. Feelings

Greetings from Day 3 of my post-A-Camp haze, which heavily features naps, cheese, and tuning out the real world and its real responsibilities with an endless stream of music by musicians from the mountain.

If you weren’t at A-Camp this year then let me tell you, we were truly #blessed to have enjoyed the musical talents of supremely cool beings Jenny Owen Youngs, Sean Desiree aka Bell’s Roar, Mal Blum and Julia Nunes. Not to mention other remarkable humans such as Elicia Sanchez and the A-Camp Family Band, who performed an epic rendition of “Like A Prayer” that is sadly not on Spotify.

This one’s for all whose hearts are still on the mountain.

  1. The second I had service at the airport I bought all their most recent CDs so I could keep the mountain on the plane with me

  2. Yes please this is all I want to do this week

    Julia Nunes gave me my first alternative lifestyle haircut at camp and I think I kind of imprinted on her like a duckling

  3. YEESSS! I am not ready to face real life yet. I ventured out of bed yesterday and this morning. I gotta say bed and dreaming of the mountain is a lot better. This helps!!!

  4. “Make out” will always bring back memories of that first morning music hike. #missingcamp
