The Wicked Chicken plays a mix of driving rock-and-roll, old-time fiddle, and blues. Armed with exciting new material, powerful groove, and a unique sound, the Wicked Chicken will surprise and captivate audiences of all varieties. The foundation of the band are the brothers Gus (guitar, vocals, fiddle) and Huck Tritsch (drums, percussion, fiddle). Gus and Huck have performed with distinguished musicians including the rock band Marah, and have earned recognition at various festivals and competitions including the Appalachian String Band Music Festival, known as Clifftop. The Wicked Chicken is constantly exploring different influences and sounds, and you never know what you might hear at any one show. But whether it’s old-time fiddle music, North Mississippi Blues, or driving rock & roll, The Wicked Chicken will play it with creativity, rhythm, and soul.

Mary Linscheid’s music is rooted in the forests and rivers of West Virginia, a place her family has called home since the end of the 18th century. Influenced by poet Louise McNeil, novelist Ann Pancake, and songwriter Hazel Dickens, her music digs into the deep connections between the land, community, and the self. Recalling the sounds of the old-time fiddle jams she’s attended since her early teens and the singing of her mentor Ginny Hawker, her debut EP, A Place to Grow Old, is a powerful call for connection and reconciliation in the face of powers that divide us. Linscheid is currently a student at West Virginia University, where she performs as part of the university’s bluegrass band.

Seasons of Rothrock

Seasons of Rothrock – Session IV Tussey Mountain

Sunday, December 4th 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

presented by:

Are you a rider interested in exploring beautiful Pennsylvania gravel and singletrack in Rothrock State Forest and making friends in a great community along the way? If so, the Seasons of Rothrock series—which captures all four seasons through two gravel and two mountain biking races—is perfect for you!

In this section of Seasons of Rothrock, you’ll hit some of the forest’s most challenging trails within the picturesque backdrop of late fall. The course flows through the famed Three Bridges and Lonberger trails before tracing the crest of the ridge for the iconic Tussey Mountain Trail. After that, be ready for the wicked Leniency Trail descent that’s followed by the challenging Double Black John Wert Path that’s rocky, rooty and carved through the thick cover of Rhododendrons. Along the way, you’ll make friends amid a grassroots mountain biking culture that’s as unique as the trails themselves. Expect to be kept on your toes during challenging technical sections with brisk breaks down punchy descents. This race will test your mettle but it won’t break your wallet and you’ll still be home for dinner. Registration and awards will be hosted by Happy Valley Women’s Cycling.

About the Potters Guild

The Potters Guild is a community of local potters from the novice to the professional whose goal is to support the art of ceramics in Central Pennsylvania.

The Potters Guild was started in 1971 with the enthusiastic backing of a small group headed by Shirley Siegenthaler. The original membership numbered about thirty. A high-fire kiln was designed and built with volunteer labor, equipment bought, borrowed, and assembled, and the studio space rented from the Art Alliance. Guild activities, centered around the studio and kiln, have continued since that time.

Members have the option to pay quartly fees and access to the use of a well-equipped studio, including wheels, electric and high fire gas kilns, access to prepared glazes and glaze materials, personal and common shelf space and access to a range of activities including raku firings, workshops, classes and a valuable learning interaction with other potters with a wide range of experience and artistic inclination.
