From June to August, the Tabernacle at the Mount Gretna Campmeeting, at 428 Mount Gretna Road, is again celebrating its annual Heritage Festival.
Concerts will be held on Saturdays from 7:30 to 9 p.m, rain or shine, for “pay what you want” admission, with donations appreciated. Smoking and alcohol are prohibited at the venue.
June 18—Olivia Perrin and CJ Steinway
Original songs by two musicians who met in the Philadelphia music scene. CJ Steinway was intrigued by Olivia Perrin’s unique voice and created original arrangements to showcase her vocal strengths. The duo will also be performing a number of “classics” from various eras.
July 2—The Youngers
The Youngers’ Americana music has been featured on NPR and Sirius Radio, and they’ve shared the stage with musicians including the late Levon Helm, Marty Stuart, Lee Rocker, David Allen Coe, and Wayne Hancock.
July 9—Valentina Sounds
A fusion of catchy melodies and pop tunes blended with a jazz background sums up Valentina Sounds. With lyric-driven songs delivered energetically and even humorously, Valentina Sounds is an all-female trio with a stage presence sure to impress.
August 13–Colebrook Road
Harrisburg-based Colebrook Road is composed of five musicians who bring a real synergy to the stage. They’ll return to the Tabernacle this summer with guitarist, lead vocalist, and main songwriter Jesse Eisenbise; banjoist, dobroist, and bass vocalist Mark Rast; mandolinist Wade Yankey; fiddler and baritone vocalist Joe McAnulty; and bassist and tenor vocalist Jeff Campbell.
August 20—Li’l Brother Band
A loving group of musicians playing and singing your favorite songs, and a few originals too. This “timeless music” spans genres, from rock and R&B to country, children’s, and other standards.
