The Lewisburg Arts Council is pleased to announce the sixth concert in the 23rdseason of the summer concert series Music in the Park – Lavender Blue! Lavender Blue, based in Williamsport, is a folk band comprised of Amanda Coughenour (vocals and ukulele); Karl Fisher (mandolin); Charles “Chalie” Holmes (double bass); Katie Johnston (fiddle); Aaron White (vocals, guitar, and ukulele); and Lee Saville-Iksic (vocals and guitar). They perform a mix of original songs, American traditional songs, and covers of singers like Paul Simon.
