TUNKHANNOCK TOWNSHIP -- Acoustic music fans will be jamming this weekend in Wyoming County.

The Cornstock Music Festival is in full swing at Lazy Brook Park along Route 92 and Route 6 near Tunkhannock.

Jillian Brosnan and her husband Anthony Hannigan of Pike County organized the three-day event.

"It brings everyone together. That’s what our vision is, to get people together and educate them," said Hannigan.

Brosnan said she and her husband love the area.

"Our favorite place in the world is here. We came back and knew there was a billion awesome musicians here so we thought what a great place to have a great acoustic music festival," said Brosnan.

The festival will feature more than 20 musicians and groups.

Bob Randall of Northumberland County said he is thrilled to have an event like this near home.

"It's awesome to have it this close to home. A lot of friends and family can actually make it to the festival, and it's just wonderful to see someone put this on in this area," Randall said.

The festival will run through Sunday evening.
