LÚNASA WITH SPECIAL GUEST ASHLEY DAVIS CONCERT IS WEDNESDAY, DEC. 13

“Christmas from Ireland” is being presented by the Deane Center for the Performing Arts and the Wellsboro Community Concert Association on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
On stage will be Lúnasa, "the hottest Irish group on the planet," according to the Irish Echo. Joining them on their "Christmas from Ireland” tour across the United States is vocalist Ashley Davis, an Internationally recognized recording artist and songwriter and longtime friend of the band. Together, they will perform spirited instrumental music, evocative airs, and songs both unknown and familiar.

With two seasonal CDs under her belt, Davis brings a wide repertoire of Celtic and original songs, tempered by the influence of her birthplace, the Kansas plains and the country music traditions borne of America’s Appalachian Mountains.


Ashley Davis
The band is composed of flautist, whistle player, and lead man/comic Kevin Crawford, piper and whistle player Cillian Vallely, fiddler and whistle player Colin Farrell, Trevor Hutchinson on upright bass, and guitarist Patrick Doocey.

Since forming in 1996, Lúnasa has performed over 2000 concerts, and achieved a worldwide reputation as a different breed of Irish traditional music group – one with the repertoire of lifelong traditional musicians, the intricate harmonies of a jazz combo, and the energy of a rock band.

The all-instrumental quintet is noted for double-bass and guitar-driven rhythms, original compositions mixed with material from Celtic regions such as Brittany, Galicia, and Asturias, and slower melodies involving three-part harmonies played on the traditional pipes, fiddle, and flute.

Tickets are $25. For tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.


Lúnasa's complex arrangements and unique sound have reshaped
 the boundaries of traditional music and energized audiences the world over. Shown are (from left) Patrick Doocey, lead man/comic Kevin Crawford, Trevor Hutchinson, Colin Farrell and Cillian Vallely.

DEADLINE FOR FAÇADE GRANT APPLICATIONS IS DECEMBER 22

The PA Route 6 Alliance is reminding business and property owners in Warren, McKean, Potter and Tioga County that the deadline to apply for funding to improve the exterior of businesses is quickly approaching.

Applications for the regional façade grant program sponsored by the PA Route 6 Alliance and the PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship (PA Wilds Center) are due by December 22 at the Galeton office of the Alliance. Applications can be submitted electronically too.

The PA Route 6 and PA Wilds Regional Façade Program is intended enhance the attractiveness of the small towns within the PA Wilds and along the PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor by helping commercial property owners and business owners in Warren, McKean, Potter and Tioga County improve the look of their buildings.

“We’ve seen a lot of nature and heritage tourism investment in the Pennsylvania Wilds in recent years, and it is creating real opportunities for communities to draw visitors in to fuel business and job growth and improve quality of life,” said PA Wilds Center Executive Director, Ta Enos. “To attract visitors – and most other kinds of investment -- communities need to appear welcoming. This program helps communities achieve that.”

The PA Route 6 and PA Wilds Façade Program will provide funding to commercial building owners and business owners (with property owner approval) as well as non-profits, with the restoration of building facades within the targeted area. Eligible types of restoration activities include design assistance, a fresh coat of paint, new signage, and repairing or replacing an awning. Façade improvements do not need to be costly and will greatly improve the façade of the building, making a lasting effect on the community.

According to Terri Dennison of the PA Route 6 Alliance, the Façade program will fund about 32 façade projects at a maximum of $5000 each with a required 1:1 match. It will also make smaller matching signage grants available to 50 retail and host site establishments involved in The Wilds Cooperative, a visitor experience the PA Wilds Center is working to curate and grow.

The program is made possible thanks to an $183,000 Keystone Communities grant from the PA Dept. of Community and Economic Development (DCED), and project support funding from the PA Dept. of Conservation & Natural Resources (DCNR).

For more information about the PA Route 6 and PA Wilds Regional Façade Program, contact the PA Route 6 Alliance at 814-435-7706. Guidelines and applications can be found at www.paroute6.com/facade.
