PSU Altoona's Canal Jam Celebrates 19th Century Songs


On Saturday, September 25, Penn State Altoona celebrates music of the “Canal Era” in Pennsylvania, around the mid 1800’s.  As WPSU’s Kristine Allen reports, they’ll hold a “Canal-Era Music and Entertainment Summit” at the Allegheny Portage railroad site in Gallitzin.

Kristine Allen is Program Director of WPSU-FM. She also files feature stories for WPSU on the arts, culture, science, and more. When she's not at WPSU, Kris enjoys playing folk fiddle, acting, singing and portrait-sketching. She is also a self-confessed "science geek." Kris started working in public radio in college, at age 17, and says she "just couldn't stop."
