Special Music Event at the Library July 10-12!

Join us for a free 3-day music camp and concert with the duo Simple Gifts from central PA.

There will be afternoon workshops for all ages and an educational concert of folk and world music, using 10-12 different instruments and presenting traditional music from the British Isles, Appalachia, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the Jewish tradition.  Participants will be able to handle some of the less fragile instruments and learn how to play the ukulele, bowed psaltry, and spoons! Learn about the creative process that folk musicians follow to take a simple melody and mold it into an interesting performance piece. Afternoon sessions from 2-4 pm and evenings from 7-8:30. Sign up for one workshop or more. Space is limited for the workshops, so sign up early. More details to follow.

See our Facebook page (Bethany Public Library) for a schedule or call the library at 570-253-4349 and visit: simplegiftsmusic.com

Our thanks to the Wayne County Community Foundation and Pennsylvania for the Performing Arts for making this event possible.
