The Clifford Township Supervisors, in conjunction with the Clifford Township Historical Society, Inc. has received a Pennsylvania Humanities Council grant to host a series of old time music workshops during the Clifford Township Bicentennial Celebration on Saturday, July 1, from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Clifford Firemen’s picnic grounds on Rte. 106.
In partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the PHC supports projects combining the arts and discussion, the heart of the humanities.
Ed and Geraldine Berbaum have dedicated their lives to teaching and preserving the old time fiddle music of Jehile Kirkhuff. This former Montrose resident was a blind, world champion fiddle player. The focus of the Berbaums’ workshops at the bicentennial celebration is to teach and pass on the legacy of traditional American music as played by Mr. Kirkhuff and other early settlers of the Clifford area. The audience of all ages, especially children, will listen to the Berbaums play and then actively participate in rhythm workshops. The old melodies will rekindle memories and will spark intergenerational discussions highlighting the importance of music in the everyday lives of our forefathers.
This is just one of the celebration highlights, much more is planned. For more information about events, schedule or location, visit the website www.cliffordpa.com. Because many elderly folks will undoubtedly attend to reminisce and enjoy, golf carts for mobility, handicapped facilities and plenty of seating will be available. Rain or shine, most activities are under a roof, and there will be free parking.
For more information, contact Sandra Wilmot at 679–2723.
