Join us for Folklore and Coal Mining Songs of the Northeast, Thursday, November 5, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
An informative musical and historical program with original and documented songs of this region during the early 1900’s, highlighting the everyday struggles and life of the European coal miner in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Songs sung by miners are performed as well as songs about more contemporary issues such as “The Fires of Centralia” documenting the 50 year old coal fire that burns there to this day. To emulate the mining musicians of the region, Jay Smar sings, fiddles, and flat-foot clog-dances simultaneously to highlight the end of the program.
