And it’s one, two, three, hey!
Help them put the chairs away.
If it wasn’t for them,
we wouldn’t be here.
Let’s hear it for the volunteers.

“Let’s Hear It For the Volunteers’

We'd like to invite all Susquehanna Folk volunteers, past and future, to our annual Volunteer Picnic at Fort Hunter Park. Volunteers are at the heart of all that SFMS does, and the picnic is a great opportunity for us to socialize, get to know each other better, play some music together, and learn about upcoming SFMS volunteer opportunities. Families are invited too!


Bring your instrument! You might also want to bring a folding chair or blanket. The picnic will be held rain or shine.


What's a picnic without food? We'll have a potluck lunch at 2pm, so bring a salad, side dish or dessert to share. Grilled hamburgers, veggie burgers, tableware and drinks will be provided.


There will be a mini-concert at 3pm by Olds Sleeper: that's the stage name for songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Heath Hardin. Raised in southern York County, PA, Olds' music and lyrical material draws heavily from the rural Pennsylvania landscape and the gritty attitudes of its inhabitants. He inherited his love of country music and banjo playing from his grandfather. While not fitting neatly into any musical category, his music is steeped in Delta blues, Americana, old country, and folk. Olds has been featured in No Depression, has appeared on WITF Harrisburg as a musical artist of the month, and his 2012 album, New Year's Poem, was a Saving Country Music's album-of-the-year nominee. He teaches in beautiful Lancaster, PA and lives with his wife and three children.

Please RSVP!

To help us with planning, please let us know you plan to come. RSVP by Tuesday, September 18! Call or text 717-319-8409 or e-mail concerts (at)
