Just as folks make their annual pilgrimage to see the technicolor displays of Mother Nature each fall in her jewel of Jim Thorpe, music lovers likewise flock to the Mauch Chunk Opera House for another perennial favorite – A. J. Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle performing Simon & Garfunkle.
Their popular tribute is one of several headline concerts this month, which include Jeffrey Gaines, Eaglemania, the Cast of Beatlemania, Childhood’s End and a Frank Sinatra tribute.
