Juggernaut in Wonderland

The borough of Stroudsburg, PA presented another installment of their weekly Outside Concerts at Courthouse Park Series on Thursday June 30th. The Juggernaut String Band enlivened the park with their extraordinary musicianship and their high energy performance. The band consisted of Pete Taney, Carolyn Burbage, Brian Bramkamp, and Johnny Peppercraft. Cajun, Zydeco, and folk music from many cultural traditions filled the air and hearts of the many who was in attendance.

In addition to the music, there were several family orientated activities available to everyone. These included an opportunity to utilized some colored chalk and encouragement supplied by St'Art Stroudsburg to adorn the Monroe street section next to the park. Whimsical colors and images filled the asphalt canvas with images reminiscent of the classic books written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) titled, “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.” Jody Singer, the Director of The Origins Gallery, joyfully distributed the pieces of wonderment to the crowds that gathered.

The vibrancy of the music and that of the imaginative images that flowed throughout the evening touched the soul with its astonishments. The departure of those who gathered to enjoy the experience was filled with anticipation for the next concert in the series. The next Outside Concert at Courthouse Park is scheduled for Thursday July 21st beginning at 6pm and will feature the music of Sage.
