3RFS is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1988,

Yakima, Snake and Columbia rivers

We present concerts, coffeehouses, contra dances, song circles, and the annual Tumbleweed Music Festival (In its 23rd year in 2019.)
Covid has changed everything. Our concerts, song circles, and Tumbleweed Festival have gone virtual. Our Contra Dances are on hold. It's a different world now.
But 3RFS is continuing to offer online virtual events. See our Concert, Coffeehouse, Song Circle and Tumbleweed Festival pages for details.
In particular, don't miss our
Jim Coleman coffeehouse on Friday April 9
Concert with Hank Cramer and Friends on Saturday April 17.

TMF Virtual 2021: Our 25th Anniversary!
Performer applications due April 20, 2021!
Planning has already begun on this year's Tumbleweed Virtual Music Festival. Given the current situation and uncertainty about the course of the pandemic over the next months, we've made the decision to be virtual once again.
The 2021 Festival will be the 25th annual Tumbleweed - and, we've chosen a fitting Theme for this year: "Silver Linings." As always, the theme is the point of inspiration for the Jane Titland Memorial Songwriting Contest, and serves as the unifying element for the Sunday "Theme" Concert.
Unlike past years, we are not having a Logo contest, because by glad circumstance, we already had one! Tom Reitter, our fabulous video editor, had originally come to us in the Before times with a desire to make a documentary about our run-up to this festival. As a part of his production process, Tom had already developed a logo for his film, but we've now co-opted it for our next-year's logo, as shown above!
