Join us for a gala evening celebrating folk music and dance in Central PA. It's a very special event that supports future SFMS programming. This year it's a cèilidh, a Celtic house party, and a tip o' the hat to the Scots-Irish who settled the Appalachian mountains. Settle in for some great music and craic, as well as tasty snacks, scrumptious desserts, and The Abbey's fine beverages.
Wear your favorite kilt or kirtle, or come garbed as an ancient Celtic lord or lady! Or come as you are.
