SUSQUEHANNA FOLK FESTIVAL NEWS - Sun, Jul 14, 2019
SFMS is seeking a folklorist to do fieldwork and ethnographic documentation between January 15 and August 31, 2020. As a recently-named Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) Folk Arts Provisional Partner, SFMS is charged with surveying folk and traditional artists living and working in Dauphin, Cumberland and Lebanon counties. Read on for more details about this part-time contract.
SFMS presents a full calendar of traditional arts events in south-central Pennsylvania. This winter we'll enjoy concerts by Twisted Pine (from our 2018 festival!), new songs from Missy Raines Trio, and Irish music from Altan and HighTime.
Our 2020 festival will feature a youth festival band, or "Kids' Academy", coordinated by traditional musician Jane Rothfield. Kids 6-16 will learn several traditional tunes by ear and then perform them on the main stage! All instruments and ability levels are welcome. Come to our info session on October 11, or email for more information.
