    Friday Musical Line Up

    11:00 - 1:00 pm - Local artist and musician Jonathan Frazier returns for a 3rd year to perform gentle layers of morning music for the PA Tea Festival in the charming rear courtyard setting.  Over the course of his 2 performances, guests will get a taste of the exotic as he plays Native American flutes, Chinese Hulusi, Indian Bul Bul Tarang, keyboard, guitar, percussion pad, and other instruments.  Jonathan uses "live looping" to build up songs from scratch - his sound is so polished that casual observers sometimes mistake him for a DJ, but all sounds are made fresh on the spot!  More information at www.jonathanfrazier.com

    1:00 – 3:00 pm - Providing afternoon music for the PA Tea Festival will be Mary-Kate Spring and Mary-Grace Autumn Lee, sisters and members of the Celtic Nu-Folk Group Seasons.

The sisters have recorded multiple CDs and have been delighted to share their music at Festivals and events throughout the Midstate and beyond. www.seasonsmusic.com, www.facebook.com/seasons
