A Susquehanna Folk Special Event...
A Susquehanna Folk Cabaret
Sunday, June 16, 2013
at Appalachian Brewing Company, Harrisburg
~ A very special evening to benefit future SFMS programming! ~
The electrifying, carefree atmosphere of an old-world cabaret (á la Paris's Moulin Rouge) will come to life in the Gallery of the Appalachian Brewery on June 16. Live music, delectable desserts and Susquehanna Folk's popular Silent Auction will make it a festive and memorable evening.
Continuous Live Music
Anything can happen at a cabaret — but if it's a Susquehanna Folk event, superb live music is a guarantee. The Gallery perfectly captures the essence of Europe's late 19th Century nightclub scene. Comfortable seating, danceable music, evocative lighting, and intimate tables provide the perfect setting for "cutting the rug" and connecting with old friends and new.
THE HARRISBURG MANDOLIN ENSEMBLE came together in the summer of 2011, inspired by the early 20th Century tradition of the community mandolin orchestra. Playing instruments that range from the mandolin to the mando-bass, they explore new and eclectic material from Bach to bluegrass, jazz and roots music.
THE CHESTNUTS don't fit into a neat pigeon-hole. They play a blend of '50s and '60s country, folk, blues, and an occasional reinterpretation of a rock classic. The two core members started playing together in the summer of 1968, and they've been on the local acoustic scene ever since.
Come as you are, or wear something fun, festive and funky to enter our costume contest! Last year, several folks really rocked the 1920s glitter and glamour look, with men in vests and formalwear, and women adorned with boas, sequins, satin and feathers. Whatever attire you choose, dress for fun!
Delicious Desserts, Coffee & Tea
A dessert bar loaded with delectable treats will be part of the event, along with coffee and tea. The Appalachian Brewery's extensive array of handcrafted ales and lagers will be available for purchase at the Abbey Bar.
Susquehanna Folk's popular Silent Auction returns, featuring a tempting array of items reflecting the spirit and traditions of South-Central Pennsylvania: one-of-a-kind artisan items, theater tickets, and maybe even a chance to bring local performers to your home for an intimate house concert.
