The sounds of traditional music from a by-gone era will fill the air at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm on Saturday, July 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Supported in part by a Project Stream grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the eighth annual “Music in the Valley” will feature music on the historic farm, reminiscent of how it would have been heard in the 19th century.

A variety of groups will perform at different venues around the farm and the day will end with a jam session at 5 p.m. As well as performances throughout the day, there will be free hands-on sessions to provide visitors with an opportunity to take a closer look at the music and maybe even try a featured instrument.

There will be a sing-a-long, storytelling and activities for children and the young at heart. Puppeteer, Bonnie Scott, will hold puppet shows throughout the day and the One Room School will be open. Wagon rides will take place weather permitting.

There will be a seminar on traditional music presented by Tom Druckenmiller, Betty Druckenmiller and Norm Williams. An opportunity to learn the background of songs and how the music of our country developed through the last two centuries.

The event will be held rain or shine, under tents as needed. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 3 to 12 which includes the farm tour. The farm tours will run on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Schedule is subject to change.
