The 2nd annual Winter Folk Festival was held this past weekend at Stoudts Brewery.  Winter Folk is a charitable musical event in support of Hospice of Lancaster. The ambiance of Winter Folk is that of a gathering of friends and family.  The brewery hall was filled with laughter as children danced to the music, friends conversed while drinking craft beers, all bended sonically by five very talented musical acts, and as promised all for a good cause. Winter Folk raised $2,000 for Hospice of Lancaster County, doubling its donation from 2010. The following is a list of bands that played Saturday night. All are local to the area, so give them a listen, and if you like what you hear show them some support.
