‘Women’s Music in the Mountains’ fest returns to Swiftwaters this weekend

Swiftwaters Music Festival

The eighth annual Women's Music in the Mountains festival returns to the North Georgia mountains this weekend, promising three days of camping, songs and fun.

Lesbian guitarist Ronnda Cadle organizes the festival each year at Swiftwaters, the "womanspace" campground near Dahlonega, Ga.

"If you have never been to Swiftwaters, you must plan to attend or camp at some point," Cadle says. "The Festival is rustic as well as the camping. Tents are the main source for camping and there are no RV hookups. But the spirit of the grounds, its vision and longevity are priceless."
