Emily Rose and Cliff will be playing music at First Night in Bethlehem on December 31st. First Night is a wonderful family oriented New Years Eve Celebration. Rob Fedorczyk will be joining them on the slide guitar and other instruments.

Our folk oriented set of music covers a lot of territory, including American folk, Celtic, classical, rock and blues. We also play a few original tunes including some that Emily Rose has written. We are playing in the Christ UCC Chapel at Center and Market Streets, from 8:00pm until 10:00pm. I believe this will be our fifth year playing at this site. We always have a great time. The chapel has great acoustics.

There are other sites in the UCC Church, including a place to get food. Other First Night sites are in easy walking distance to the chapel. For more info go to http://www.firstnightbethlehem.com/
