Event Details

  • Date:

Perkasie Mennonite Church and Patchwork Coffeehouse invite you to an Old-Fashioned Christmas on Sunday, December 15, at 3 pm. Music by Wayfarers & Company and Daybreak. Rob Yoder will lead the audience in Christmas caroling. Preservice music by Joanna Mell, accomplished harpist, begins at 2:40 pm.

Wayfarers & Company is comprised of Bob Mallalieu, Norm Williams, Amanda Parker, and John James. This exciting group performs old time songs, fiddle tunes, and gospel music on traditional instruments such as guitars, hammered and lap dulcimers, fiddle, flute, mandolin, autoharp & more.

The musicians of DayBreak have been harmonizing together since at least 1989 in and around Lehigh and Bucks Counties of Pennsylvania. The core of DayBreak for the last many years has come from the Cole and Yoder families. We enjoy applying our rich blend of acoustic instruments and voices to Celtic and American folk tunes and seasonal songs. We always hope to bring warmth and freshness to an uncommon range of traditional and current genres. This performance features Cliff Cole, Trudy Gojeski and her parents, Anna Lisa and Rob Yoder.
