Farm Work Party:
The 27th Delmarva Folk Festival is coming up September 28-29, which quickly approaching! We are planning a work party this Sunday each weekend. If you have them, bring a rake, pruners or clippers and work gloves because we are going to clear paths of the greenbriar and limbs.

Also, pack yourself enough water, bug spray and some foods to keep you going. Afterwards, there may be a jam session, just a spontaneous thing if people are up for it!

What is FOLK MUSIC? I always like to say "Music that FOLKS play", but that doesn't always work for people. Basically, what I think of is a few people on a porch, in a village or common area playing, singing & dancing to their own ethnic traditional music. Singing songs that they know by heart, passed down from others before them. Follow this link for a great little explanation for kids, I really think that this sums it up without being overly technical. ~ Jan Crumpley
