Camphill Kimberton Presents Daria in Concert - A World Music Performance for the Special Needs Community

Daria, an internationally-known folksinger, will present a concert at Camphill Village Kimberton Hills on Saturday, March 10 at 4 p.m. Children and adults with special needs and their families are specially invited to be a part of this performance where Daria shares a wonderful mixture of favorite songs from American and world folk music traditions. She introduces unique authentic instruments and allows the audience to take part in the performance.

For the last two decades, internationally- known folksinger Daria has traveled the globe, learning, sharing and making music while building communities and encouraging a new view of hope and peace for all the world’s children. In the United States, she has won national awards for her children's CDs including a Parent’s Choice Award, a NAPPA (National Association For Parenting Publications) Award and a Children's Music Web Award.

Daria has spent several days this month working with Camphill Kimberton’s residents to create and learn to play their own instruments. The culmination of this workshop is the concert on March 10, where the Camphill Kimberton villagers will perform live with Daria.

Reviews of Daria include:

“When Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou makes music, the world listens -- literally!” -- Christian Science Monitor

“A NAPPA Award-Winner, Daria delivers an eclectic mix of multicultural tunes with strong hooks and sing-alongs in many languages.” -- www.Parenthood.com

“The children at Melmark have varying special needs, but the music performed and the constant interaction between performer and audience reached all who were present at the assembly. Children who are normally lethargic were moving and dancing to the music. Children who are normally reserved were singing along. The children were actively engaged.” -- Heather Holt, Music Therapist, Melmark School

The concert is free but donations will be accepted. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited. Rose Hall is wheelchair accessible.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road, Kimberton, Pa. The concert will be held in Rose Hall.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
