Jay Smar “Northeast Pa Coal 'n Folk Music” program

Coal and Folk at the Park!

Meet: Amphitheater by Flat Rock Trailhead at Colonel Denning State Park

Overflow Parking: Pavilion 1 Day use lot, Equestrian Lot, Lot above the Doubling Gap Lake Dam


In the last 10 years, Jay Smar has toured Scotland, received recognition from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and recorded music for the Welsh BBC movie, "The Welsh in America". Jay has been selected by the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour to be on their professional touring roster.

Baritone vocalist Jay performs with guitars, and a claw-hammer banjo, while fiddling, singing, and flat-footin ' (a form of clog-dancing). Jay serves his audience an "acoustic buffet" of traditional American and original folk, old time mountain music, bluegrass and gospel tunes, as well as coal mining songs of Northeast Pennsylvania preceded by their origin.
Original and "covered" guitar instrumentals garnish this plate of cultural cuisine.
