The Queen's Grove

The land that now forms "The Grove" at St. John's (Hain's) UCC was purchased in 1927. It is a peaceful area of shady trees and green grass. It includes a bandshell, restrooms, and several pavilion-like structures.

St. John's (Hain's) can trace its history back to the settling of Germans in the local area, circa 1730. 
 

Now, it will be transformed into
The Queen's Grove!

the chivalrous crickets
The Chivalrous Crickets is a Celtic and Americana folk band creating at the intersection of traditional English, Celtic, and American folk, and early (Baroque) European art music. The band's members, who all sing, play instruments, and arrange and compose for the group, come from backgrounds of folk and classical music. Their skills and interests combine to form a unique sound centered on rich vocal harmonies, diverse timbral blends of modern and historical instruments, exuberant arrangements, and provoking and innovative programming of traditional, original, and historical music. Formed in 2018, and based between eastern PA and central NJ, the Crickets revel in playing sundry venues from history museums to schooners and canal barges, Early Music concert series to Celtic folk festivals, churches to barns, and speakeasies to theaters, ranging from Maryland to Maine and beyond.
