Folkmoot Fa-La-La is about pie, too!
Set for December 4, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Folkmoot Friendship Center, it is about Christmas music and community spirit.
Folkmoot Family Fa La La will feature old fashioned dessert pies made by our very involved volunteers and served as a finale to a night of local musical talent. Many long held family recipes will be shared. Mrs. Smith and Marie Callender are not invited.
But YOU are invited to partake in sampling a plethora of pies including French peanut butter, butterscotch, chocolate, pumpkin, coconut, and rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie. What?? Rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie was the first recorded recipe for pie, according to the American Pie Council which traces its history to the Roman era – where this pie lover thinks it should stay. (And, yes, there is an American Pie Council, a crusty organization no doubt.)
As our community celebrates the holiday season with music and song at the Folkmoot Friendship Center, we invite you to share the love of music, fellowship and of course, pie!
Folkmoot is auditioning its newly renovated auditorium by opening up its doors to the community. A long time center for gatherings, Folkmoot wants to bring back the traditions of the season. The holiday concert will include performances by Voices In The Laurel, Saxophone Wassails of the Haywood Community Band, Karin Lyle and Folkmoot’s own Blackberry Jam.
In addition to the diverse offering of homemade pies, the evening will also feature a hot chocolate and hot apple cider bar.
Tickets are already on sell at the Folkmoot Center! Adult tickets are $10, student’s $5 and children ages four and under are free!! For more information please call the Folkmoot Friendship Center at 828-456-2997.
