Guitars, fiddles, and vocals will be ringing from the rafters in one of the oldest barns west of the Allegheny Mountains on July 28 and 29 as 15 groups perform at the "In Harmony" Heritage Music Festival. This first annual festival is sponsored by the Harmony Museum and will bring old-time heritage music to historic buildings in and around Harmony, Pa.
Headlining Friday night’s concert is the popular Pittsburgh group the Allegheny Drifters, singing Appalachian-inspired music. Saturday’s headline group is the exciting Cello Fury, bringing high energy and new perspectives to heritage music. The second venue, the 1825 Mennonite Meeting House, will feature the 18 piece Pittsburgh Historic Music Society Orchestra, in period dress bringing a vibrant, historical musical experience to life.
Other performers at the festival include The Hill and the Rivers, Old Song Rescue Society, Snappin’ Bug String Band, Sarah Sternaka and Devin Sherman, “Gertrude Rapp” and the Silk House Singers, Well Strung, Pittsburgh Banjo Club, South Wind, Midnight Rooster, Mirror Trio, The Wayward Companions and Seneva Valley Women's Quartet, and showcase other local talent.
There will also be food, local beer, and wine-tasting, and kids' activities. And we are just 30 miles, and 200 years, from the 'burgh! For a full description of all the performers, a venue map, and other information about this exciting festival, please visit our website at InHarmonyFestival.com.
