Fri, July 30 - Hit Rewind: Happy Traum

Hit Rewind: Happy Traum Online

Good news for folks who missed Happy Traum's in-person concert — or who loved it and want to share it with distant friends. We recorded it! Grab a ticket, “Hit Rewind,” and watch the concert as a YouTube Premiere starting Friday, July 30. MORE

Wed, August 11 - Bringing it Home: Beautiful Gestures

Bringing it Home: Beautiful Gestures Online

A classical Indian dancer, an African American quilter, and an artist of hooked rugs: what do they have in common? Three local women featured in our Folk Artists Gallery chat about women's art and the many ways we make meaning with our hands. Virtual conversation on Wednesday, August 11. MORE

Fri, August 13 - “Spoonful of Jazz” Solo Jazz Dance Class

“Spoonful of Jazz” Solo Jazz Dance Class Mt Gretna, PA

Hot diggity! IN-PERSON dancing returns with world champion swing dancer Carla Crowen. Learn how it's done in The Big Easy — and at the Tuba Skinny concert that evening, you'll be dancing in the aisles! Everyone is welcome at our IN-PERSON dance class on Friday, August 13. MORE

Fri, August 13 - Tuba Skinny

Tuba Skinny Mt Gretna, PA

To call Tuba Skinny revivalists would be to miss the point. The New Orleans ensemble have never conceded the death of pre-1940s jazz and blues... they laze and weave around each other as if bebop never happened. LIVE IN PERSON! Outdoor concert on Friday, August 13. MORE

Sat, August 14 - Emerging Artists Sought!

Nora Brown Mt Gretna, PA

15-year-old Nora Brown "has a host of roots music legends pouring out of her fingertips and through her lips," says The Bluegrass Situation. Dedicated to the traditional banjo music and soulful ballads of the south, Nora possesses a music wisdom that is far beyond her years. LIVE IN PERSON! Outdoor concert on Saturday, August 14. MORE
