Throughout the event there will be live music at the Conservancy’s Bob and Janine Grossman amphitheater! This is a continuation of this year’s performance series. Ian Carroll is a musician, one man band, street performer and band leader. You can find him performing most days somewhere in the South Central PA and Baltimore region either solo or in various groups. His music is folk based (fiddle, mandolin, viola & song) with a large repertoire of Celtic, Appalachian, Americana, various world music and originals. Thank you to the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority for supporting our amphitheater series!
