Cunning Men and Hex Craft: Folklore and Magic in Rural Pennsylvania

Featuring Jimahl di Fiosa

Saturday, August 12

5:00 pm

Saint Mary Salon 2 [map]

Full Schedule

Jimahl di Fiosa spent his childhood exploring the mountains and forests of rural Pennsylvania. This remote area of Northern Appalachia has always been shrouded in mystery and magic. While many of the country folk profess a deeply spiritual connection to Christianity, the shadow world is always close at hand. When the shadows descend across the valleys and the moon rises over the mountains, the old people talk of ghosts, witches and hexes.

Join Jimahl as he shares stories of Pennsylvanian folklore, the world behind "Pow Wows, the Long Lost Friend" and the Hex Craft of the Pennsylvania Dutch.
