The program also focuses on the rafting days when millions of board feet of Pennsylvania Timber were assembled into various styles of rafts and piloted down our streams and rivers.

Performance stage

Sponsored by:

Emily Berge & Family - 11:30 - 12:15 PM The Berge Family has been making music together since the girls were able to hold a mic and sing harmonies. Although they mostly play together at Crossroads Nazarene Church, they are excited to play this summer at various community events and festivals. Emily, a 13 year old singer songwriter and the youngest member of the Berge family, was selected as one of the winners in the 2022 Songs of the Susquehanna Songwriting contest. You will be sure to sing-along with a family mix of your favorites.

Rosi Hibbard - 12:30 - 1:15 PM Influenced by folk music of the 60s and 70s and inspired by local history and culture, Rosi Hibbard has been singing and writing songs most of her life. A native Pennsylvanian, Hibbard’s original works speak to the small town simplicity of life experiences and values, and often leave the listener with something more to think about. Hibbard believes the lyrics are the most important element of her music, and says the songs are taken to a new level when accompanied by harmonies and the added baritone voice of long-time friend and singing partner, Gene Hubbard (not a misprint—different last names). The Hibbard-Hubbard duo will perform some of Hibbard’s original works as well as some traditional folk and familiar folkish-country music.

Larry Lawson - 1:30 - 2:15 PM Larry Lawson has lived in the Susquehanna Valley almost his entire life. As a young boy, he fished for carp and catfish. Later he canoed with friends down long, lazy stretches of the river. More recently, he has kayaked with family and canoed the Susquehanna with his wife, daughter, and grandson. As a songwriter, he looks for those moments in life that inspire joy and wonder. He is very proud to have had a song included in both volumes of Songs of the Susquehanna. His performance will include a number of original tunes, all of which celebrate the delights to be found in our relationships with family and friends, as well as in the abundant life around us.

Richard Findlay - 2:30 - 3:15 PM

9

From Lewisburg, PA, Richard is a lifelong keyboard artist who has traveled and performed in many different parts of the U.S.… from Boston to Hollywood, Vermont to North Carolina. As a child, he loved his basic classical piano studies, but his interests took off in the mid 1970s when he first heard synthesizer music in a movie score. He thought: “I just have to have more of that! What is that instrument?” About 6 years he could afford his first synthesizer, and there was no looking back! Richard now works with Yamaha’s flagship keyboard, the Montage 8. He aims for a full rich sound with lots of surprises. During his live performances, Richard’s music is not recorded or over-tracked, but it is all live right out of his instruments. Typically, his music is not sequenced and is true to the classical tradition in form, but the colorations are very special and unique.

What is the Susquehanna Greenway anyway? The Susquehanna Greenway is a connected corridor of paddling, walking, and biking trails, boat launches, conserved lands, and communities that runs along the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The Susquehanna Greenway and the Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo are projects of the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership (SGP). The Shikellamy State Park Marina was chosen by SGP as the location for the event due to its central location within the Greenway geography.

The Susquehanna Greenway Outdoor Expo was financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program Environmental Stewardship Fund under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
