Singing a song can affirm our beliefs, soothe a restless child, heal a wounded heart, unite a community, and move people to dance with joy. This first event in our “Bringing it Home” series centers on the powerful role that songs play in our lives.

Singing a song can affirm our beliefs, soothe a restless child, heal a wounded heart, unite a community, and move people to dance with joy. This first event in our “Bringing it Home” series centers on the powerful role that songs play in our lives. Listen in as we chat with three local artists from our Folk Artists Gallery:

  • Susan Leviton, a Jewish cultural artist, who will talk about the stories within traditional Yiddish songs.
  • James MacFarland, a singer with the Spiritual Messengers Warriors for God, who will talk about lyrics as a form of faith.
  • Mike Furjanic, the violinist for the tamburaši group Sviraj, who will share stories of connection and identity within the Balkan community.

“Bringing it Home” is a series of virtual conversations with local artists sharing their art and their stories about being an artist in central Pennsylvania. To read more about them and other fascinating people, visit our Folk Artists Gallery.

The “Bringing it Home” events and the Folk Artists Gallery are projects of the Susquehanna Folk Arts Center, created by SFMS in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
