Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Thursday, June 11.
1) Diane Cluck at DECA Building (Lancaster)
Musician Diane Cluck is now based in West Virginia, but hails from Lancaster County and is returning to her origins today at the Discerning Eye Center for the Arts (DECA, at 12 W. New Street.) Cluck’s eeriely beautiful folk music – aided by piano, zither, strings, and a pipe instrument of her own design – will intrigue anyone interested in the Lancaster music scene (or, indeed, in music at all.) Catch her at 6:30 p.m. tonight – the cover is $10. Anna McClellan and artist Catamount/Coyote will be opening for her.
2) From the Path to the Page: Travel Writing with Karen Loftus at Tellus360 (Lancaster)
Tonight at Tellus360, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about travel writing from someone who’s visited all seven continents. Karen Loftus has seen it all, done it all, and written about it all for almost a hundred media outlets by her count. Attendees are advised to bring a notebook and pen, laptop, papyrus scroll and stylus, or stone tablet and chisel – whatever your preferred writing implement – and be prepared for absolutely anything. Tickets will run you $35 at the door, but you can grab them for $30 right now.
3) Danielle Miraglia at the Farmer’s Market (Hershey)
The hair and voice say Janis Joplin, the wide array of subject matter says Bob Dylan, but Danielle Miraglia has a style all her own. A bit classic rock and a bit mournful blues, she brings an old-school folksy spirit to her songs, which range from slow-burning ballads to foot-stomping torch songs with infectious rhythms. Miraglia’s bringing her smoky voice and incredible guitar work to the Farmer’s Market in Hershey for their free concert series. Catch her tonight from 6 – 8 p.m.
