It's been a magical musical journey since the first time I hopped on the bus to volunteer back in the 80's. This Fest continues to inspire my songwriting,... wrote and finished a few songs the next day! Folks seemed to especially like my song "Back to the Music." When it was raining cats and dogs I found refuge in the Dance Tent to experience Dukes of Destiny before dancing in the rain to the Pine Leaf Boys. After that, the rain subsided for a wonderful evening... CJ Cheni
At Muhlenberg College, with over 550 in attendance, I led songs like "If I Had a Hammer," "This Little Light of Mine," and "Leaning on Everlasting Arms." The power of hundreds of friends singing together helped transition some challenging sessions such as how to better understand racism in our society.
