David Falcone, Celtic Guitar

Friday, January 19 at 7pm 

David will play a concert of acoustic, celtic guitar.  David was recommended to us by the Lansdowne Folk Club.  He has performed at World Café Live, and The Point.  Don’t miss the chance to hear a beautiful instrumentalist.  A marvelous opportunity to get out of the house in the heart of winter.  Warm your ears with beautiful celtic music, and warm your heart by sharing the evening with your neighbors.

Our Storybook Walk is a children’s picture book, displayed page by page in permanent installations along the paths in Little Crum Creek Park. Begin your walk on Cresson Avenue then wind along the path by Little Crum Creek, through the field, and back again while reading a fun story. The book will change several times a year, so you and your family can keep coming back to enjoy a new story.
