  • — Lacawac Sanctuary’s summer Music-in-the-Forest series begins its fourth season on Sunday, May 12, with a performance by The Young Geezers.
    The Young Geezers are one of the Pocono’s favorite bluegrass and folk combos and always draw a large following when visiting Lacawac. The show begins at 3 p.m. in Lacawac’s historic, rustic Carriage House venue.
    The Young Geezers play all acoustic music which includes a wide and varying range of gospel, folk, and bluegrass. They combine various traditional instruments with outstanding harmony in performing both popular and recognizable tunes as well as some new and less familiar ones at each appearance.
    According to Lacawac Executive Director TJ Fadden, “If you enjoy good music in a very relaxed atmosphere, you will find this a fascinating evening with some of the most familiar and melodic music direct from our nation’s roots.”
    Lacawac presents a range of local and national talent each year in its Carriage House venue to help raise funds and keep alive a tradition from the turn of the previous century.
    Former Lacawac owners Congressman Charles Connell and later Lt. Governor Louis Watres used to welcome and entertain friends and neighbors from up and down the old Wallenpaupack Valley here and the barn-style events were very popular at Lacawac a hundred years ago.
    Additional shows this season include Kevin Higgins on June 8, Wargo Stevenskey Flute & Guitar Duo on July 13th and The Young Geezers return on July 14.
    Those attending are invited to come early and enjoy a hike on one of Lacawac’s six hiking trails. The Carriage House is smoke free, alcohol free and family friendly. And, children under 12 are free.
    For more information or to make a reservation, call Lacawac at (570) 689-9494 or email info@lacawac.org
