Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to offer our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered.

Registration is now open for East Coast Virtual Camp on August 14-16, 2020, with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. This camp is geared toward the USA East Coast and will run on Eastern Time (UCT-0400).

Martin Koenig: Sound Portraits from Bulgaria

January 25, 2020 at 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Meet ethnographer and cultural documentarian Martin Koenig, who made half a dozen trips to Bulgaria between 1966 and 1979 and filmed, recorded, and photographed the lively, yet endangered, aspects of Bulgaria’s traditional village culture. The program will feature the story of a recording of a Bulgarian folk song launched into space in 1977 as part of a NASA project to bring a greeting from Planet Earth, and a film on traditional Bulgarian folk dancing from the period 1966-1979 made by him. Copies of his book “Sound Portraits From Bulgaria," recently published by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, will be available for sale and signing through the Friends of the Lawrence Library. Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library and the Bulgarian Cultural Center of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. No entrance fee, but registration is suggested. For more information or to register, please contact lawprogs@mcl.org or call 609-883-8294.
