Robin Trower

April 4, 2018 - Penn's Peak, PA

Penn’s Peak is proud to announce Robin Trower, Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 8:00 pm in Jim Thorpe PA.  The Robin Trower story started in the mid Sixties when he began his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. But the first time Trower pinged on rock’n’roll’s radar was in 1967, with Procol Harum – house band of the Summer of Love. Though he did not play on their mega-hit ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’, he completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971.

    Consider a Locally Sourced Thanksgiving Celebration

    Thanksgiving is the perfect time to express gratitude for the abundance of locally grown foods available in and around Northeastern Pennsylvania and Sullivan County, NY.  Local farm markets, many of which run during November, are one option for sourcing vegetables, baked goods and turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner. There are well-established markets in Honesdale and Scranton, PA; and Callicoon and Barryville, NY. Some of these markets move indoors during the late fall and winter.

Poconos Events

There’s So Much On The Horizon in the Poconos, You’ll Be Head Over Hills!  Most likely, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to do next. You may decide to hit a food and wine festival to nourish your foodie soul – or maybe you’ll want to see a show. Great! You can do both. In fact, you can do a lot more than that. The Poconos has concerts, festivals, races, comedy shows, theater, carnivals, and county fairs.

The Poconos concerts run the gamut from local acts to national tours – and the genres run the gamut from rock to blues to country. Pocono Mountain festivals celebrate everything from beer to garlic to wieners! And what about the fantastic food concoctions you’ll run into on the midway at the county fairs -­‐ who’s up for deep-­‐fried Oreos?

All sorts of Pocono events are coming up, such as art and music festivals, NASCAR and Indy races, and more! In the Pocono Mountains, you can do whatever you want.

If you have an event and want to submit it for inclusion in our site, please send it to Events@VisitPoconos.com.  Please include event info and photo(s).  If you would like us to cover your event, we have writers and contributors who may be able to attend.

“Still On the Up” Interview with Adam Aijala of Yonder Mountain String Band, New Album Early 2017
For 18 years, Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music by pushing the envelop into the realms of rock n’ roll and improvisation. This afternoon marks the beginning of the 2016 summer tour, and their first show tonight is sold out.  I ask Adam Aijala (guitar and vocals), over the phone, what the vibe is like on the tour bus right now, and he replies, reasonably: “It’s actually… pretty empty. Everyone is out doing things.” But when I mention the sold-out show tonight, he says, instantly full of life: “It feels great—it should be a good show!”
