SUSQUEHANNA FOLK FESTIVAL NEWS - Fri, Feb 22, 2019
By Jess Hayden
American blues, jazz and ragtime performer Del Rey is coming to Harrisburg, and the concert will be FREE to Susquehanna Folk Music Society members! Del Rey is a singer, guitarist and ukulele player. Her distinctive fingerstyle playing has an fascinating complexity, and she makes her solo instrument (even the ukulele!) sound like a whole band. Rags, blues and tunes of the early 20th Century are her specialty, even as she writes new music to add to the tradition.
When Del Rey takes the stage, you’ll see her sporting her trademark horn-rimmed glasses and prairie get-up. "The first time I saw her she reminded me of my grandma with a print dress and her hair in a bun," said SFMS member Bill Gulvin. "But when she got out her steel guitar, she set it on fire!"
Del Rey comes to Harrisburg for an April 13 Susquehanna Folk Music Society concert at 7:30 p.m. at the Fort Hunter Centennial Barn, 5300 N. Front Street, Harrisburg.
Thanks to a generous donation from Bruce and Joan Kolka, THIS SHOW IS FREE TO SFMS MEMBERS! The Kolkas are long-time SFMS members and have been our Membership Coordinators for many years. Their contribution is a way to give back to SFMS, and to encourage more people to become members.
