Emmaus Road Cafe | website | Lancaster, false 17602 event website

Singer – songwriter Shelleen will be performing at Emmaus Road Cafe on Saturday, December 3. Doors open at 7:00pm, and the music begins at 7:30pm.

Since the release of her debut album, Rough Tracks, in November of 2009, Shelleen has been enjoying the opportunities God has given her to sing and share her story. Seven of the ten songs off that album have had significant radio play, with Enraptured and New Day making their way to #1 & # 4 on CRW’s Global AC charts respectively. To date, Shelleen’s music has aired on over 160 stations around the globe!

Her venues range widely due to her flexibility. “Sometimes it’s just myself and my back up CD or my husband on acoustic guitar for smaller events, but God has also blessed me with a group of incredible musicians who can keep it acoustic or go full blown electric depending on the size of the venue. I enjoy all of it…the intimacy of sharing with a small group to the level of excitement and shear fun of singing with my band. The level o

Lancaster's Music Man, John Piersol McCaskey

LancasterHistory.org | website | Lancaster, false 17603 event website

John Piersol McCaskey was among the first to collect and publish songs for the American public in the 19th century. His many songbooks sold in the hundreds of thousands and graced parlor pianos throughout the country. With Christmas, McCaskey’s favorite holiday, came a new host of opportunities including compiling a Christmas book, scheduling annual parties and programs for school students, and preserving the songs of the season in his music books. At this colloquium, local author Dolores Parsil will discuss McCaskey's contributions to American music, love for the Christmas holidays, and uncanny connection to the song Jolly Old St. Nicholas.

The colloquium Lancaster's Music Man will take place on Thursday, December 15, 2016 in Ryder Hall at LancasterHistory.org, 230 North President Avenue, Lancaster. A social gathering with refreshments will begin at 4pm, followed by the lecture from 4:30-5:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Ramble through Tucquan Glen or Kelly's Run Glen

Kelly’s Run Pinnacle

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | No direct road access (see LCC website), Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

The remains of an old rocky road are visible where flat schistic rocks have been placed side by side in and beside the stream. The Conservancy’s “Kelly’s Run Pinnacle Preserve” now encompasses the Conservancy’s Kelly’s Run trails, the former PPL Pinnacle preserve and the former PPL Holtwood Nature Preserve.

Tucquan Glen

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | River Road, Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

A largely abandoned dirt road and well-worn trail meander through the heart of the ravine for nearly a mile. Occasionally the road and trail run together for short distances, but are generally apart. We suggest taking the trail down to the railroad and returning via the road. The round trip trail length is estimated at 2.4 miles.
