A contagious groove and feel-good melting pot of raging fiddle tunes, saxophone solos and unrequited love songs. We get a whole weekend with this hot trio! Saturday evening contra dance at St John's in Lancaster with caller Caroline Barnes, and a Sunday evening concert at Fort Hunter in Harrisburg.

Two very different singer / songwriters start us off: genre-jumping psych-folk from Scott Fagan and the emotive original songs of Michael Arthur.
After a brief intermission, The Chestnuts cover great old artists from the 40s to the 80s, and
Nothin’ Ta Plunder wraps up the evening with classic rock, blues and 60s music, plus a few country and original numbers.
The word été in French means "summer" — a fitting tribute to this trio's original, lively take on Québec's traditional music. With lovely vocal harmonies, deep groove, and rich instrumentation, their shows transform the nostalgia of a kitchen party into an unforgettable celebration of the joie de vivre of Québecois culture.

Traditional arts often embody what is most important to a community: the things each generation wants to pass on to the next. And so by its very nature, much of traditional art is intended for the whole family.
The board and staff of the Susquehanna Folk Music Society are committed to celebrating and affirming diverse cultures through programming which explores the music, dance, craft and stories of many people. We stand in complete solidarity with the Black community and all marginalized communities to speak out against injustice, bigotry and racial violence.
