Description

Article from Pennsylvania Folklife (winter 1962-63) describing how a traditional community with no electricity hosts events with large crowds: "The most disturbing technical problem that faces the host is that when 200 to 300 of the Amish get together at a dance it is difficult to hear the music." Illustrated with photographs.
