Coal Mining Songs of the Northeast

Coal MiningJoin us on Wednesday, July 2, at 7:00 pm for a musical performance! Registration required.

 

This informative yet musical program highlights the struggles and disasters of coal miners in Northeast Pennsylvania. Documented and researched original compositions are presented first by explaining their origin, then musically through song. Presenter Jay Smar accompanies his vocals with guitar, claw-hammer banjo, fiddle and a form of clog dancing. Coal mining photos, books and chronicles also are shared with the audience.

 

We will meet in the Lower Level Meeting Rooms. Registration is required!! Register at the library, by calling us at 766-0171, or emailing us at simpson@cumberlandcountylibraries.org.

 

This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by National Endowment for the Humanities. The Pennsylvania Humanities Council, a nonprofit organization, inspires individuals to enjoy and share a life of learning.
