The Greenwood Furnace Folk Gathering is a fun and friendly weekend of
playing and listening to folk music - a fantastic three days of
workshops, concerts, jams, dancing and friendship. Activities are held
at Greenwood Furnace State Park in central Pennsylvania, about 30
miles from State College and 90 miles from Harrisburg. This is a
gorgeous location with beautiful mountain views, many miles of hiking
trails, and a six acre lake for swimming and fishing.


Musicians of all instruments and levels are welcome, and there are
also options for singers, dancers, and non-musicians. Choose from more
than 45 workshops on topics ranging from old-time tunes to shape- note
singing to playing backup to how to learn by ear. Jam sessions will
take place throughout the weekend.


For those who are new to music, dulcimers and autoharps will be
available to rent for the weekend or borrow for a workshop, and we'll
have gentle and patient teachers to get you started. There will be a
staff concert each evening, followed by staff-led jams, singing around
the bonfire, and a contra dance with open band.


The cost for the weekend is $80 which includes all workshops, jams,
concerts, and dancing. A meal package with three meals Saturday and
two meals Sunday is available for an additional $45. To register,
visit http://folkgathering.com.


Camping is available by calling the park 8am-4pm at 814/667-1800. Let
them know you are part of the folk gathering, so that you may camp in
the area by the workshop activities. There are also hotels about 15
miles away.
