Music in the Valley – Saturday July 11, 2015
Stroudsburg (PA) – On Saturday July 11 from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm is the place to be to enjoy the sounds of traditional music. Supported in part by a Project Stream grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the ninth annual “Music in the Valley” will feature musical performances at various locations around the historic farm, reminiscent of how it would have been heard in the 19th century.
A variety of groups will perform at the different venues and the day will end with a jam session at 3:30. As well as performances throughout the day, there will be hands-on sessions to provide visitors with an opportunity to take a closer look at the music and maybe even try a featured instrument. There will be a sing-a-long, storytelling and activities for children and the young at heart! Puppeteer, Bonnie Scott, will hold puppet shows throughout the day and the One Room School will be open. Wagon rides will take place, weather permitting.
There will be a seminar on traditional music presented by Norm Williams, Tom Druckenmiller, and Betty Druckenmiller. A wonderful opportunity to learn the background of songs you still know and love and how the music of our country developed through the last two centuries.
The event will be held rain or shine, under tents as needed. Schedule is subject to change. Music in the Valley is included in the price of admission for the historic farm tour of $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for ages 3 – 12. The farm tours will run on Saturday from 10:00 to 5:00. Great fun for all ages, so come for a few hours or bring a picnic lunch make a day of it. All funds raised goes to support the farm museum and its mission.
