Jim Messina at Rose Lehrman Arts Center

SFMS is a proud sponsor of a concert with Jim Messina, of Loggins & Messina fame, appearing Ocrober 24 at the Rose Lehrman Arts Center of Harrisburg Area Community College. A few discounted tickets are available from SFMS! This legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist is bringing his band for a career-retrospective tour showcasing some of his greatest hits: "Angry Eyes," "Your Mama Don't Dance" and "You Better Think Twice." Messina's musical style blends country rock (from his early career with Buffalo Springfield and Poco) with folk rock and pop (from his work with Kenny Loggins). Tickets are $25.50 and must be pre-ordered by emailing concerts@sfmsfolk.org. Read more about the concert... »MORE»

American Idol Star In SFMS Concert Series!

Kristyn Harris, a singer, guitarist and champion yodeler, was scheduled to perform for SFMS last year with fiddler Hailey Sandoz. But a few months before the concert, Kristyn called us and said, "You'll never believe this, but I’ve been asked to audition for American Idol!" Since her commitment to the show necessitated that she clear her schedule, we postponed the concert. After she won over the American Idol judges with her small-town charm and big, beautiful voice, we were excited to be able to reschedule the concert! Mark your calendar for December 8 in York. »MORE»
